I have lusted after atmosphere since the first mini write up I read in Computer Music last year - yet I put off buying it.

It is absolutley stunning- the presets alone really define a great canvas of material to work with - and it works well in the mix ( sometimes I can be heavy handed with pads - but they seem to "flow" right into place for me with Atmosphere)

Overall - the tweakability of the patches is exaclty my speed - mix and match two layers, tweak envelopes on each patch, mix and pan each channel, and you can creat some truly astonishing hybrid atmospheres and effects - this is the first VST I've ever started saving patches for within a day of installing-

CPU load is ok on my Mac - watching voice counts is really a great way to keep the overload syndrome from happening- and any other idiosyncracies I have are due to my own not reading through the manual yet.

overall, this is by far the best single sound source I have tried for truly great rich sounds and textures - this paired with Absynth is a killer!

Customer support - haven't had to use it yet, and there are no updates yet - so we'll see.....

Hi everyone, i will ask something maybe stupid or not, but it would be very helpful for me if you can give an answer.. I'm not a keyboard player, but i use keyboard vsti plugins usually. One of the vsti i use is Atmosphere (spectrasonics), and i've found that the main data file, with the sounds, is a unique 4 Gb file with the .dat extension. I would like to know if it's possible, to "extract" certain sounds from this 4 Gb file and use it with a real synth, or some way to get the wave file of that sounds i'm interested in.

I know it sounds very ambitious but due to spectrasonics atmosphere doesn't exist as hardware, i needed to ask. This question extended to another vsti's as well, like Nexus, or Plugsound......

Thanks a lot for all.

What are you trying to play the sounds with? Hardware I mean?

I am very annoyed : i bought my atmosphere VST in 6 cd on Ebay to an english seller several years before; The serial number and challenge i used worked very well. Then, after several years, my computer was KO ; i have just bought a new one ; the registration of atmosphere doesnt work anymore. I have called spectrasonics : no way they tell me that i do not belong to their buyer base ??? so as my reisgtration number . I have sent them a photo with my 6 cd but no way??? They just advise me to buy omnisphere 2 ... but i cant pay 400 € ; and anyway i have already paied for my VST. I dont want omnispohere ; i jus want my atmosphere. They dont accept. Could Someone help ?


best regards.
