Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spectrasonics Omnisphere (Electronics)
I'm new to the music production scene, basically i asked a mate what vst's he recommends and this was mentioned. OMG. The sounds this piece of software has in it's database are unbelievable. There isn't enough time in the day to go through them all. The synthetic sounds are amazing, there are tons and tons of really atmospheric ones. These simply wow anyone who hears them but the normal instruments also sound top notch. I've got komplete 8 but the sounds in omnisphere sound much more lush, possibly not as realistic but in my opinion make a track sound far better. I think this is a fairly expensive vst but to be honest it's a bargain. The sounds are THAT good. God knows what it'll sound like when i upgrade my sound card and speakers, I've got goose bumps just thinking about it. The comments about this software being greedy on the PC spec are not entirely justified. I've got an intel i7 950 running at 3.07Ghz with 12GB of RAM and have no issues, I can have 4 or 5 instances of omnisphere with sonar X1 and I don't go above about 40% of my RAM and it doesn't impact the CPU much, maybe 10% and thats with other vst's running such as trilian, Z3TA and Battery. The intel i7 does give you 8 locical cores though.
