    Really looking forward to the new arp/save as MIDI features.

    Also, there seems to be almost a GB of new sound sources... Omnisphere is really not expensive when you look at all that you get. One of the best purchases I've ever made.

    I wonder what their next project will be after Keyscape and all the recent Omnisphere updates.

    This has been a painful question. Everything Spectrasonic does is top notch. Excluding Keyscape everything else is synth based. It'd be nice to see something completely different. How about String-scape! That'd be awesome.

    My guess is they'll be focusing on acoustic drums next....or maybe something orchestral like you said.

    Wasn't that the plan? I thought Eric Persing mentioned StylusRMX was the next thing to be updated... but take that with a grain of salt for now, I am looking for the source of that info (sorry getting old, can't remember where I read that)

    Best purchase ever is an understatement, I think its the best virtual instrument ever made at this point. Most libraries / vsts eventually get boring, but Omnisphere seems to grow new legs every year and is always exciting to explore new sounds in.

    Capture Midi files! Man, that is just fantastic. Can't wait to try it out!

    Here's to hoping Kontakt sorts this out. Man, Omnisphere is just such a great invention! What a wonderful investment! :)

    Not sure I understand this... is there a video on it? Does that mean you can take an arp pattern and the midi will place notes accordingly?

    Anyone try this yet?

    Downloaded, installed, clicked on the first preset that caught my eye (“Wakanda something or other”) and laughed out loud at how awesome it sounded.

    Omnisphere is truly the king of VSTs

    I'm pretty certain - like 99.99% certain - he never in fact said this. The stock reply is "we haven't forgotten about rhythm".

    Only had the briefest of plays with 2.6, but it seems fabulous. Chuffed they've filled every one of the 48 modulation slots on the MS20iC profile - yes that jackfield works!

    In the Hardware Integration video, I had to laugh when Eric throws the mouse and we hear the (either hated or loved) Wilhelm Scream!!

    Also downloaded and installed - but how do i find/isolate only the new presets?
     
  15. I cross my fingers for a Stylus RMX 2.0 release in 2030...! :)

    You can type "2.6" in the search field in the patch browser (category All Spectrasonics), which will then show the new patches.

    This is terrible. Omni keeps getting more and more enticing while the size of my wallet keeps me depressed. :crying:

    Large wallets aren't very expensive. Sounds like with a very minor investment you can make yourself feel a lot better.
