Aged String Machines for Omnisphere 2
Contains 45 vintage presets for Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2. All patches here are
based on Omnisphere’s Soundsources at the core of their sound design.
The result encompasses a retro sonic identity derived from past decades. Those presets could find their
places in cinematic music productions, retro electronic genres, new age and progressive rock.
A New Point is crispy and carries a majestic temper, Calm And Vintage speaks by its own name. Choir Of
The Forest is a calming and nostalgic synth choir and Digital Dawn is an emotional atmospheric pad
synth. Dream Of Dystopia has a saturated bright tone, while Emotional Strings is a classic long pad.
Moving forward we could listen to the ten Film Noir sounds. Those have a dark vintage character and
granular synthesis was widely used for most of those. I could describe them as synth orchestral patches
full of sensation and sentiments – with those patches we can add some tension in a retro way, mostly at
the mid frequencies.
Flat Dark Choir is a very compressed synth ensemble of voices and Futuristic Glance adds some hollow
sonic dimensions. Give me Your Hand sounds very optimistic and Majestic Universe is great for quick
In general, the soundbank has a vintage point of view with some sci-fi touches. We can find many types
of synth choirs inside beside the more string oriented stuff.
This time I assigned Mod wheel to a tremolo effect device while Aftertouch adds some destructive and
disharmonic sonic characteristics using Ring Modulation. You could change the rate of the Tremolo on the
effect page of the synth and adjusting the speed on will. The speed is counted in Hz and there is no sync
to note values.
In the AUX part of the patches you could find a Frequency Manipulated Spring Reverb running in parallel.
I found that Spring Verb worked nice with these types of sounds adding a sparkling texture.
Patches were created with Omnisphere 2.8 and run best with this or newer edition
Try to keep optimal levels of your synth tracks to avoid digital clipping from the synth’s output for the
best sounding results.
