Spectrasonics updates Omnisphere to v1.1
Spectrasonics has released version 1.1 of Omnisphere, the flagship virtual instrument, which combines a wide variety of hybrid realtime synthesis techniques, a massive library of remarkable ‘Psychoacoustic’ sounds, and many innovative features.
On the heels of the release of their epic new Trilian® Total Bass Module virtual instrument, Spectrasonics has announced the release of version 1.1 of their award-winning Omnisphere® Power Synth – featuring native 64-bit Windows support, core library integration with Trilian and more. The new v1.1 is also Mac and Windows 32-bit compatible.
