Omnisphere is an extremely powerful synthesizer that allows you to import your own audio to use as Soundsources for the creation of your own Patches and Multis. This lets you creatively morph, meld, and mangle your own audio the same way you can with the included Factory Soundsources. Each imported audio file will become a User Soundsource in Omnisphere.

You might want to import a guitar track, a vocal, or even an entire mix and transform them into something completely different: a cinematic texture, a percussive sound or a synth lead. You can then save them as Patches and easily Share them with other users.

NOTE: The User Audio import function does not support zone-maps, round-robins, or multiple velocities, etc. Remember, Omnisphere is not a sampler, is a synthesizer. User Audio allows you to transform your own audio in creative ways with all the processing power Omnisphere has to offer.

IMPORTANT: Please respect all copyrights and import only material that you are licensed to use.

There are two places from which to import User Audio into Omnisphere: from the Utility Menu and from the Soundsource Browser.

Utility Menu Shortcut

Selecting “User Audio” from the Utility Menu will display a File Dialog prompting you to navigate to the audio file or directory.

Navigate to the folder or file you wish to import and click “Open.” The import process will begin and they will be added to the User Soundsources directory in Omnisphere.

Once the audio has been successfully imported, you will get a confirmation notice.

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 on your hard drive in the following directory:


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

NOTE: If you batch convert a group of audio files, only the first imported file will be selected and played back.

Soundsource Browser

Audio can be imported via the Soundsource Browser. You can drag and drop audio files or folders into this area to automatically start the import process. You can also click on the pane to open a File Dialog prompting you to navigate to the audio file or directory. Clicking “Open” will start the import process.

See User Audio for further details.
