NAMM 2019Spectrasonics announces Omnisphere v2.6 at NAMM

Spectrasonics

Spectrasonics has announced another significant update of Omnisphere. Version 2.6 adds an enhanced Arpeggiator and dramatically expanded Hardware Synth Integration, with support for over 60 Hardware Synths. This update adds brand new profiles for such iconic synths as the Roland Juno-106, Alesis Andromeda and the Roland D-50, to the very latest synths like the Korg Minilogue XD and Moog One - as well as dozens of other user requested models. The free update will also include hundreds of inspiring new patches for all registered Omnisphere 2 users and will be available in March.

Major Arpeggiator Update
Omnisphere's Arpeggiator has been greatly enhanced with all new creative tools, a brand new preset library and much more. The musical possibilities are vastly expanded, making it one of the most flexible arpeggiators ever, while still being fun to use. Best of all, Omnisphere 2.6 can now capture the MIDI data of what the arpeggiator is doing as a standard MIDI file, which can be dragged to any DAW for further editing.

Expanded Hardware Synth Integration
Omnisphere's unique Hardware Synth Integration feature bridges the physical experience gap between software and hardware, giving users intuitive control of Omnisphere by using the familiar layout of their hardware synth. With the new 2.6 release, many requested hardware synth profiles have been added, including support for over 60 popular hardware synthesizers from Moog, Sequential, Roland, Korg, Novation, Nord, Behringer, Access, Studiologic and Yamaha. The supported hardware synths cover a wide array of form factors and price ranges for different types of users.

New Sounds
Omnisphere 2.6 features a newly expanded "Hardware Library" with hundreds of new patches created by Eric Persing and the Spectrasonics Sound Development team. Notably, this update takes Eric's classic sound design work from the original 1987 Roland D-50 into completely new sonic territory with Omnisphere's vast synthesis capabilities.

New Hardware Synth Profiles added in v2.6 include:

  • Roland Juno-106.
  • Roland D-50/PG-1000.
  • Alesis Andromeda A6.
