“Our biggest goal with Omnisphere 2 is to offer more freedom to create for every type of person using it,” states Spectrasonics’ Founder and Creative Director Eric Persing. “This is the first ‘version 2’ of any of our software instruments, and it’s monumental! We had a blast creating all the features and sounds over many years and we can’t wait to see what our users are inspired to do with Omnisphere 2.”
