ILIO has announced the release of a new kind of patch library for the Omnisphere 2 virtual instrument from Spectrasonics.
Utilizing the modulation wheel to elevate the sound and bring over 300 unique new sound variations, Elevator includes original sound recordings of a Lamborghini drive-by, fireworks, an assortment of big drum hits, a Nerf air gun engine, a metal door slam, and more.
Included with these recordings are select sounds from the Omnisphere Core Library and DSP waveforms to bring you a hybrid of organic and electronic sounds that will ignite your productions.
Elevator is unlike any other 3rd party patch library available for Omnisphere. Given most of the 112 patches were programmed with all 4 Layers utilized in a single Part (Omnisphere’s 8 multitimbral Parts contain 4 Layers, each), you can combine or solo each Layer to isolate and perform a more “thinned out” version. This gives you hundreds more sound possibilities. In the browser, simply search for the word “Tetra” or select it from within Omnisphere’s Attributes menu to discover them all.
All patches have been programmed with modulation wheel and aftertouch (especially fun for next-gen keyboard owners). Open filters, add tempo-pulsing amplitude, vibrato, longer reverb and delay tails, and more using the additional expressive control.
The modulation wheel is an important part of Elevator. It’s the key controller for “elevating” each patch. The detailed Comments will guide you (along with your ear), on how to get the best use out of the programming. You may find yourself using the modulation wheel, pitch wheel, and aftertouch at the same time, giving you some very interesting results!
Elevator is available for purchase for $35 USD. It requires Omnipshere 2.6 or higher.
