GETTING STARTED - Omnisphere Standalone - Settings

Click on the View Menu to select “Settings” or simply hit “Command–E / Control-E” to bring up the Settings window.

 

When you open the Settings window, it reflects your current settings and allows you to view and set your audio / MIDI preferences for the Omnisphere Standalone.

Audio Device Type – Sets which audio driver is used by Omnisphere. Mac systems typically use CoreAudio and Windows systems typically use some variant of the ASIO drivers (we recommend ASIO4ALL.)

Output Device – Determines which audio device is used by Omnisphere. This can be an internal speaker, an audio card, or a dedicated audio interface.

Active Output Channels – Determines which audio output on your interface is used by Omnisphere.

Sample Rate – Omnisphere’s sample rate can be set to either 44.1k, 48k, 88.2k, or 96k.

Audio Buffer Size – Determines the amount of latency in the Omnisphere Standalone. Lower buffer settings have less latency, but tax your system resources to a greater degree (you might experience audio glitches or pops at lower buffer settings.) We recommend experimenting to find a good balance between latency and performance. Omnisphere’s Audio Buffer Size can be set from 32 to 1024 samples.

Active MIDI Inputs – Lists the active MIDI devices connected to your computer. You can select which MIDI input you want to trigger Omnisphere.

CPU – Measures the percentage of the computer’s processing power being used by Omnisphere.

Hitting “Command–E / Control-E” again or clicking on the “X” in the upper left corner closes the Settings window.

 

NOTE: “Command–W / Control-W” also closes the Settings window when it is in-focus.

 

NOTE: Settings made to the Omnisphere Standalone do not affect how Omnisphere works as a plug-in within any host.
