MacProVideo Omnisphere 101 : Core Omnisphere
Spectrasonics Omnisphere has been making waves as a sound design tool. These videos show you why - and also how - Omnisphere makes such great sounds.
Welcome to Core Omnisphere! Transformed from its notable beginnings as the ultimate pad synth called Atmosphere, Omnisphere has evolved into a truly omnipotent sound making machine!
This amazing software instrument from Spectrasonics lives up to its name because it is capable of doing every kind of synthesis and doing it extraordinarily well! From creating rich sampled pads, to heart pounding analog arpegiations ... from dense FM synthesis to glitchy grandular madness, there are worlds upon worlds of synthesizer wizardry hidden behind its intriguing faceplate.
To lead you out beyond the presets we've called upon expert synthesist, and my dear friend and mentor, Jonathan Perl! Jonathan takes out his professorial screwdriver and strips Omnisphere down to its very core to unlock all of the amazing secrets hidden deep within.
Join Jonathan as he leads us on an amazing 3-hour journey of discovery sharing his knowledge of the inner workings of Omnisphere. And there's more: not only do we become Omnisphere experts but along the way "Professor" Perl gives us an in-depth refresher course on tons of sound design techniques which strengthen our overall understanding of analog and digital synthesis and signal flow.
Whether you're an Omnisphere newbie or power user this tutorial will grab you by the ears and lead you into a world of sound that is guaranteed to enhance your productions and inspire your musical creativity.
