Plughugger has launched UltraVirus 2, a new sound library for the Omnisphere 2 virtual instrument from Spectrasonics.
UltraVirus 2 is the fifth soundset in the Plughugger series of soundsets for Omnisphere 2 where they take a synthesizer, sample it and recreate its characteristics in Omnisphere, and take it into new directions that would never be possible with the original hardware.
UltraVirus 2 is a collection of sounds based on the Virus TI synthesizer made by German synthmaker Access. The Virus is a polyphonic and multitimbral hardware synthesizer, and might be the most popular synthesizer of modern time.
With UltraVirus 2, Plughugger sampled a huge selection of its oscillators: from raw waveforms and intervals, to FM, wavetables, drums and experimental modulation sounds. From these sounds they recreated the sound and feel of the Virus TI in Omnisphere. As a part of the soundset, Plughugger also created a large number of sounds based on the Virus sounds in Omnisphere – both taken from the Virus Indigo soundsources and the internal synth engine, using the emulated Virus waveforms.
Apart from single presets, Plughugger combined another 50 sounds into complex multisounds.
UltraVirus 2 contains 260 sounds in the following categories:
- 78 Bass/Lead Arpeggios/Sequences.
- 15 Drum / Percussion.
- 36 Pads / Synth strings.
- 33 Bass sounds.
- 34 Synth sounds.
- 14 Textures and soundscapes.
- 50 Multi sounds.
The pack also includes 124 INIT sounds for each unique sound source available in UltraVirus 2 (many of them are variations of the same sound).
UltraVirus 2 costs 19.90 EUR. Until October 14th you can buy UltraVirus 2 for only 9.90 EUR with coupon code ULTRAVIRUS2 at checkout.
