Two of the main advantages of Sonic Extensions Patches are Custom Controls and Scenes.
Exclusive to Sonic Extensions, Custom Controls allow for quick sound customization from a single page. Each Sonic Extensions Patch has a unique layout that brings together the most useful parameters for fast and creative editing. The Custom Controls are connected to all kinds of parameters deep inside Omnisphere, providing a simplified and powerful way of modifying the sound without without the need for any additional programming.
The type of sound determines what is included on the Custom Controls layout. For example, the most useful controls for pads are generally different from those you would want for guitars or rhythmic sounds. A balance is struck between simple controls and unique timbral manipulators, all the while sophisticated routing and scaling of multiple parameters is happening in the background. Each control can be automated in your host or MIDI-Learned for truly dynamic and musical performances.
NOTE: Clicking on the unlabeled LEDs beneath certain controls will display their label and function.
