Install .omnisphere

Adding sounds to your library that have been shared by other Omnisphere users is simple!

Omnisphere sounds that have been shared using the Sharing features are conveniently collected into a single .omnisphere package. Files with the extension .omnipshere can be added to your library in a single operation, which automatically installs all the necessary components (Multis, Patches and User Soundsources) to play those sounds into your Omnisphere library.

This feature handles the file management for you – you never have to leave Omnisphere.

Once you have received the shared .omnisphere file, select “Add Sounds” in the Utility Menu and follow the instructions.

Once the process is done, the added Patches will be found in the “Sharing” Directory of the Patch Browser, Multis will be found in the “Sharing” Directory of the Multi Browser, and Soundsources will be found in the “User” Directory of the Soundsource Browser.

User Audio

Omnisphere allows you to import your own audio to use as Soundsources and to create your own Patches and Multis. You can process and manipulate your own audio in creative ways using Omnisphere’s powerful synthesis capabilities. Each imported audio file will become a User Soundsource in Omnisphere.

Select “User Audio” from the Utility Menu and follow the instructions. After the import process is complete, the Soundsource Browser will be displayed and your audio (now an Omnisphere User Soundsource), will be automatically selected and played back at the note and duration set by the Audition Note settings.

To delete the audio you imported, you can do so by locating it it in your hard drive in the following directory:

STEAM/Omnipshere/Soundsources/User/

After deleting it, you must click the “Refresh” button in your Soundsource Browser to reflect the changes. 

NOTE: Each imported audio file will become a User Soundsource in Omnisphere. The User Audio import function does not support zone-maps, round-robins, multiple velocities, etc. Remember, Omnisphere is not a sampler, is a synthesizer. The objective is not to play multi-sampled instruments like a sampler, but to be creative in transforming your own audio.
