The Fame Series | Classic Sounds
I was recently asked to create a patch collection for Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2 with ILIO, with a focus on recreating unique and popular synth sounds from a variety of eras and genres. As I explored Omnisphere and created more patches, the collection ended up growing and evolving into three separate collections; classic, contemporary pop and contemporary alternative. The first of the three collections, Classic Sounds, is now available for download!
Omnisphere 2 is a power-house synthesizer that allows for vast sound sculpting and deep programming possibilities, with plenty of soundsource and modulation options to create almost any sound. One of my favourite features is the DSP wavetables based on classic synthesizers, allowing us to use the same waveforms as the original hardware for many patches. This, along with the powerful effects section, resulted in patches that sound almost identical to the originals, allowing for faithful covers or quick inspiration when composing.
The Classic Sounds collection features 66 Omnisphere 2 presets recreating the classic sounds of artists from the 70s, 80s and early 90s eras. A diverse range of artists were used as inspiration, including new wave artists such as Depeche Mode and New Order, pop artist such as Abba and Madonna, and rock legends like Van Halen and Rush.
All sounds apart from drums made with The Fame: Indie Pop presets.
