A Project is a user-defined collection of sounds, organized in a single group. This can be applied in many useful ways. For example, Projects can be created and named according to a current job, different sessions, songs, or styles.

You can add Multis, Patches, and Soundsources to a Project. The Project system is flexible and easy to manage, and since you name and populate the Projects yourself, they can be organized in ways that are most meaningful to you.

When a Project is selected in the Full Browser, only the sounds that have been added to that Project will be displayed, giving you instant access to filtered and organized selections.

Creating, Managing, and Accessing Projects

The Project/Sharing Menu

The Projects/Sharing Menu provides all of the options needed to create and manage your Projects. You can Create, Rename, and Delete Projects, Show Projects in the Browser, add or remove sounds from a Project, and Sharing your projects with a collaborator.

Create a Project

Select “Create Project” from the Projects/Sharing menu in the Full Browser, then type a name for the Project into the text field and press Return/Enter on your keyboard.

The Project is now created and available for adding sounds.

After creating a Project, its name will appear in the top section of the Project Menu.

Add a sound to a Project

To add a sound to a Project, first select the sound you wish to add in the applicable Full Browser. Next, open the Project Menu and select the Project name to which you wish to add the sound. That’s it!

Whenever that sound is selected and you open the Project Menu, you will see a checkmark next to that Project name, indicating that the selected sound is contained in that Project.

A sound can be added to multiple Projects. If a sound has been added to multiple Projects, you will see checkmarks next to the names of all the Projects it has been added to.

This makes it easy to quickly see if a sound has been added to one or more Projects.

Remove a sound from a Project

To remove a sound from a Project, first select the sound you wish to remove by selecting it in the Browser. Next, open the Project Menu and select the Project name you wish to remove the sound from (there should be a checkmark next to the Project name). To confirm that the sound was removed from the Project, select the Project Menu again and confirm that the checkmark was removed.

Show Projects

Once you have created one or more Projects and added sounds, you can browse them to select the specific sounds you’ve added.

To browse your Projects, select “Show Projects” from the Project Menu.

The left-most attribute filter will change from “Category” to “Project,” and all of your Projects will show up in that column. Select a Project from the Project list, and your Browser will display only that Project’s sounds.

Select “Show Projects” from the Project Menu again, and the attribute filter will return to the Category view.

You can also switch between displaying Projects or Categories by selecting the left-most attribute filter menu, and selecting “Project” or “Category.”

Rename Project

YYou can rename a Project by selecting it from the “Rename Project” sub-menu.

Delete All Projects

To delete all Projects, open the Project Menu and select “Delete All Projects”. A confirmation popup will appear, asking you to confirm the deletion. Selecting OK will delete the Project.

Delete a Project

To delete a Project, open the Project Menu and select the Project you wish to delete from the “Delete Project” sub-menu. A confirmation popup will appear, asking you to confirm the deletion. Selecting OK will delete the Project.

Deleting a Project doesn’t remove or delete any sounds from the library. It simply removes the tags assigned to that Project. If you have the same Project also being used in the Multi, Patch and Soundsource Browsers, you will have to delete the Project separately in those Browsers.

Add all marked items to a Project

Sounds can be marked so multiple ones can be added to a Project in one step. Open the Project Menu and select “Add all marked items to Project”. From sub-menu that shows up select the Project you want to add all the marked sounds to. A confirmation popup will appear, asking you to confirm the action.

Add all listed items to a Project

Sometimes it can be useful to add all the results displayed in the Browser. For example, if the browser is filtered to show bowed, atonal, dark sounds, you can add all the results by opening the Projects menu, selecting “Add all listed items to Project” and then your project.

Share Project

“Share Sounds” and then a Project from the fly-out menu to create an .omnisphere file containing sounds you can share with other Omnisphere users. See Sharing Sounds for more information.
