Sonic Extensions is a completely new experience for Omnisphere — an innovative brand of products built by Spectrasonics.
Available as an optional purchase, each Sonic Extension focuses on a specific aesthetic with a unique interface, a vast array of stunning, next-level sounds, and purpose-built Custom Controls — an advanced way of interacting with Omnisphere. Additionally, each Sonic Extension includes two Effects units specifically designed and created by Spectrasonics for that Extension — FX processors that expand Omnisphere’s sounds and capabilities in a myriad of unique ways.
Exclusive to Sonic Extensions, Custom Controls allow for quick sound customization from a single page. Each Sonic Extensions Patch has a custom layout that has been carefully designed to provide powerful interactivity. A balance is struck between simple, yet useful controls and unique timbral manipulators, 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.
Each Sonic Extension contains new, extraordinarily detailed Soundsources with state-of-the-art features. When these deeply multi-sampled Soundsources are used in combination with the Custom Controls, the Scenes, and the new FX, they make for an incredible collection of Patches — an optimum experience for Omnisphere users.
Ultra High-Quality Custom FX
Each Sonic Extension includes two Effects units designed and created by Spectrasonics. However, Sonic Extension effects are not limited to the Sonic Extension for which they were built. They can be applied to ANY sound opened inside Omnisphere, including your own imported audio and our Satellite instruments, Trilian and Keyscape.
Comprising some of the most powerful features of Sonic Extensions, each Patch comes with five Factory Scenes — snapshots of the current state of the Custom Controls that multiply the sonic possibilities. Depending on the layout, Scenes can recall different synthesis/FX settings or change the rhythm of a sound, allowing you to make dramatic sonic changes by simply clicking a Scene button. Scenes can be MIDI-Learned and automated.
NOTE: Sonic Extensions are not included with Omnisphere, they are available separately.
