Plughugger Deity for Omnisphere

Plughugger has released Deity, a sound expansion of 150 new sounds for the Spectrasonics Omnisphere aimed for modern dance music.

In the third installation of the Sound Expansion series for Omnisphere, Plughugger turn their focus on one of the real synthesizer legends: the Juno from Roland.

The Roland Juno is one of those rare synthesizers that despite its stunningly simple operation can cover pretty much every thing a House producer would want. Great bass, big pads and defined leads.

The model Spectrasonics used for Omnisphere was the Juno 60 and there are a total of 31 waveforms ranging from squelchy acid-like leads to deep organs and incredibly lush pads, which we used to create 100 new sounds.

As with the previous Virus and JP8000 expansions, Plughugger also included 50 additional presets that are built upon the virtual analog oscillators in Omnisphere.

Deity features

  • 150 sounds for Omnisphere
    • Bass categories: Arpeggio, Dark, Distorted, FM, Interval, Snappy, Stacked, Sub.
    • Lead categories: Arpeggio, Bright Pluck, Soft Pluck.
    • Pad categories: Big, Bright, Gated, Soft.
    • Chords categories: Arpeggio, Chord Stab.

The Deity soundset costs 9.90 EUR.

Spectrasonics introduces AAX support for Pro Tools 11 (Public Beta)

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jul 26, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Spectrasonics has announced an ‘AAX Public Beta’ version of its Omnisphere, Trilian and Stylus RMX virtual instruments for Avid’s new Pro Tools 11.

Spectrasonics AAX Public Beta

“Pro Tools 11 is a major new version of the industry standard DAW – essentially a ground-up new 64-bit architecture application. Spectrasonics is fully commited to the Pro Tools platform and we want to support our cutting-edge users who have already begun upgrading to it.” says Eric Persing, Founder and Creative Director of Spectrasonics. “This public beta of our 64-bit instruments offers AAX support to take advantage of all the new power in Pro Tools version 11. It’s exciting for us to be at the forefront of the new 64-bit Pro Tools environment.”

The Award-winning Omnisphere Power Synth is Spectrasonics’ flagship instrument featuring a hybrid architecture of high-resolution streaming samples as well as an extensive, fully programmable semi-modular synthesizer, which can be combined for thick, layered patches. Omnisphere ships with over 8,000 sounds. The Trilian Total Bass Module instrument is built on the same STEAM Engine technology as Omnisphere with immense flexibility in programming, while offering a vast selection of patches for Acoustic, Electric and Synth Basses. Stylus RMX, the Realtime Groove Module, is Spectrasonics loop-based plug-in for creating rhythm parts powered with the Spectrasonics Advanced Groove Engine (S.A.G.E.™) and featuring REX file compatibility for importing loops for unlimited library expansion.

All three Spectrasonics instruments already work well in previous versions of Pro Tools as RTAS platform plug-ins.

Registered users of Spectrasonics 64-bit Omnisphere, Trilian and Stylus RMX and Pro Tools version 11 can log into their user accounts to download the AAX Public Beta software in the Updates area.

Ilio releases Ascension for Spectrasonics Omnisphere

Ilio Ascension

Ilio has released Ascension, a new collection of patches for the Omnisphere virtual instrument by Spectrasonics.

Despite the thousands of inspiring patches already included in Spectrasonics’ epic ‘power synth’ Omnisphere, there’s always room for more! Ilio has released ‘Ascension’ – a brand new collection of patches that focus on risers and swells presented in an entirely new way.

With these 200+ patches you have the freedom and control to choose the timing of each riser and swell to meet your demands. Also, unlike other riser and swell libraries of the past, each sound in Ascension holds and transforms intro drones or pulsations after the crescendo, allowing you to add beats and other elements on the downbeat.

As an added bonus, Ascension gives you control with your modulation wheel to add a side-chain compression simulator that emulates the popular “four on the floor” pumping effect. Many of the included patches are also optimised for use with The Orb – Omnisphere’s innovative ‘circular controller’ feature within the Omni TR iPad app.

The Ascension library is available from Time+Space for RRP £15.95 GBP/18.95 EUR.

Ilio EDM Bundle

Ascension is also included in the the Ilio EDM Bundle, comprising 300+ patches in three libraries.

Featuring both EDM – Fire and EDM – Ignition, plus the newest collection Ascension, this is a great value collection for Omnisphere users who make electronic dance music, as well as producers who want to add elements of EDM into their Hip-Hop, television or film scores.

The EDM bundle is £38.95 GBP/44.95 EUR.

Ohm Force intros Ohmicide Dubstep Session Pack + 64-bit plugins updated

Ohm Force Dubstep Session Pack

Ohm Force has announced the Ohmicide Dubstep Session Pack, a bundle of the Ohmicide plug-in and dubstep construction templates by partner Clicksound.

All of the construction templates for Ableton Live and Logic Pro within this pack are fully editable Dubstep templates, which allow you to have unrestricted control over any part of the template. You can change the speed, pitch and arrangement of any part such as the drums, basslines or synth leads…what ever suites your mood! They are completely customisable and contain the building blocks for your next Dubstep project. Within each construction template you will be able to see how all of the channels are created, how the sounds are layered and placed in to the arrangement pages and how the included side-chain compression is configured.

The templates also feature Native Instruments Massive and Spectrasonics Omnisphere and just in case you do not have these plug-ins installed each template includes bounced tracks for the third party plug-ins MIDI parts. This simply means that any MIDI parts created using Native Instruments Massive or Spectrasonics Omnisphere have been bounced down to audio tracks within the arrangement page… so you do not need Massive or Omnisphere installed as the bounced audio part will play instead.

The Ohmicide Dubstep Session Pack is available to purchase for 109 EUR. The dubstep templates pack is also available to Ohmicide users for 14 EUR.

Ohm Force has also announced updates to its Mac plug-ins.

Since the release of 64-bit plugins, Mac users have been reporting various issues. Now your favorite VST and AU plugins (work both in 32- and 64-bit applications) are ready to rock again!

Fixes in the update

  • Loading a plugin and removing it while its GUI was open would make the host crash.
  • When trying to save presets, all folders in the dialog box would be greyed out, and all attempts at choosing another location blocked.
  • Contextual menus would appear at the top left of the window, instead of where the right click was done.
  • The ctrl/cmd + click modifiers on knobs would not work.

This upgrade is available to download now for registered customers..
