Plughugger has released The Little Fat Greek, the second soundset in a new series for Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2 where the concept is simple - to focus on one cool synthesizer, sample its sound and recreate its characteristics in Omnisphere, and take it into new directions that would never be possible with the original hardware.
This time Plughugger focused on the Greek synthmaker Dreadbox, and their characteristic synth Erebus. The Erebus can best be described as a monophonic analog synthesizer, with a smooth filter and a quirky character.
Plughugger sampled over 40 aspects of the Erebus and sent them into Omnisphere, where they turned them into sounds that could never be done with the original, such as polyphonic synths, pads, sequences - even drums. Apart from 170+ single presets, Plughugger combined another 50 sounds into complex multisounds.
The Little Fat Greek contains 221 sounds in the following categories:
- 15 Bass Arpeggios/Sequences.
- 15 Lead Arpeggios/Sequences.
- 15 Drums sounds.
- 7 FX sounds.
- 30 Pads / Synth strings.
- 30 Bass sounds.
- 43 Synth sounds.
- 16 Textures and soundscapes.
- 50 Multi sounds.
As an extra bonus for all sound designers, Plughugger also included 42 ready-to-use INIT patches for all new waveforms.
