    Use the Patch Browser... go nuts with playing around with the presets it comes with. After you get that down then go in to a patch and start twisting knobs see how they affect the sound. Have fun!!! It's one of my favorite synths as it's SO versatile.

    Jaap Yes that is an alto flute

    I can only second what Sostenuto has said about Pluginguru. He is an amazing resource and sound designer to check out :)

    Otherwise, first just have fun playing through all those lovely sounds and as said before, just turn on and off, twist knobs, bend faders, spin with the ORB, granulate the heck out of angelic voice and then realize 5 bloody hours have passed already :grin: Enjoy Leon!

    +1 for @Vin (Midissonance) soundsets. Free set has some real inspiration (for me at least).

    I’d also add @hollo (Hollo Sounds) who has some inspiring freebies to sample. There’s only one Omni2 soundset but I like it and there’s a free sample to test.

  11. So, I have rated all the sounds in omni 2, do you know where that info is stored to make a backup?

    Funny, I just emailed Spectrasonics 2 days ago with that very question. I haven't heard back yet. I suspect it's the "user settings" xml file which is in the steam/omnisphere/defaults folder. I'll post back when they get back to me.

    Haha! Yeah, that's the truth. It's amazing!
