The Latch Mode and Trigger Mode features extend the multi-timbral performance capabilities of Omnisphere, especially when used together with Live Mode or Stack Mode.
They enable real-time creation of complex, multi-Part performances with full synchronization between Parts, and across multiple Omnisphere, Trilian and Stylus RMX instances, without the need for traditional sequencing techniques.
Latch Mode causes notes to be held when played (or toggled off when played again), allowing quick triggering of repeating arpeggiated phrases or sustained sounds, while freeing the hands to play additional notes for layering, or for switching to other Parts to play new phrases on top.
Using Trigger Modes, incoming MIDI notes can be quantized in real-time, making it very easy to experiment and improvise along with other Parts and clocked sources without losing synchronization. These features are a lot of fun to use for jamming and building up ideas quickly!
Used together, they enable a wide range of creative performance, live remixing, and composition techniques to discover and explore.
