It is official. Spectrasonics announces Omnisphere 2 at NAMM 2015.

Omnisphere 2 Features

- Over 10,000 sounds

- Over 3,000 new Patches, Soundsources and Multis

- 25 brand new Effects Racks - including Vintage Modulation Effects, Distortions, Classic Amp Modelling, Envelope Filtering Effects and new Studio Level Compressors & EQ, plus new creative effects (including Innerspace & Resonators)

- Import your own audio directly into Omnisphere 2

- Omnisphere 2 includes a wider interface, including a patch browser, which can be expanded from the left-hand side of the interface at any time

- Sound Match - allows you to load in a patch you like, and then use Sound Match to obtain a list of other sounds with similar characteristics 

- Sound Lock - allows you to 'lock' specific module parameters, allowing you to quickly search through your patch browser, while keeping your desired parameters intact

New module parameters

- Granular module - taking any sample and allowing you to manipulate it, from a subtle tweak to the highest extremes of beyond recognition

- DSP Synth Oscillators have been increased from having 4 waveforms, to over 400 waveforms. Each waveform contains a morphing wave table, to allow for maximum control and visual feedback

- Patches can now load up to ten oscillators, with each utilising a different wave table

- Unison now includes analogue drift behaviour, adding more depth and warmth to a signal path

- 8 new filters

- Arpeggiator - each step can be individually transposed, for step sequencer style effects

- Additional Modulation Parameters - including modulating note length & arp speed
