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 current jobs, 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 Menu
The Projects 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 Share your projects with a collaborator.
Create a Project
Select “Create Project” from the Projects 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 to which it has been added.
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 from which you wish to remove the sound (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.
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.”
You 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 pop-up will appear, asking you to confirm the deletion. Selecting OK will delete the 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 pop-up 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 to which you want to add the marked sounds. A confirmation pop-up 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 selecting your project.
Select “Share Projects” and then a Project from the fly-out menu to create a .omnisphere file containing the project’s sounds to share with other Omnisphere users. See Sharing Sounds for more information.
