The FILTER ZOOM in Omnisphere provides precise control over each Layer’s Dual-Filter. The two stereo filters are represented on the left and right. The central area controls the routing and contains the shared controls. Each of the two stereo filters can have any of 34 filter types assigned. They can be combined in series or parallel, allowing for hundreds of possible filter configurations.

There are primary Cutoff, Resonance, and Variant controls for the entire Filter, but FILTER 1 and FILTER 2 both have their own independent CUTOFF, RES, and VARIANT Offsets which are applied to those primary values.


Omnisphere has a wide variety of customized filter configurations, called Presets. Filter Presets can be selected, copied, pasted, and saved from this menu.

NOTE: Filter Presets are not the same as Filter Types. Filter Presets include the Filter Types, Gain, Routing, and Offsets.

The Presets are categorized into several sub-categories; Bandpass Filters, Highpass Filters, Lowpass Filters, and Specialty Filters.
For the sake of space, the Preset names are abbreviated:

BPF Band Pass Filter
HPF High Pass Filter
LPF Low Pass Filter
UVI UVI Filter from Atmosphere®
db Short for Decibel. Names like 12db, 24db, refer to the roll off slope of the filters.


After a Preset has been chosen from the drop-down menu, the name will be displayed in the Preset display window:

If the filter types are changed in the ZOOM view, then the display will be changed to “Modified” until the Filter settings are saved as a Preset or another Preset is selected.

NOTE: Filter Presets are not designed to recall CUTOFF, RES, KEY and ENV settings. This is done because it’s the best way to audition the different Filter Presets within the context of your current Patch.
