ILIO The Fame Series
The Fame Series is my set of synth preset collections for Omnisphere 2 by Spectrasonics. The collections were made in collaboration with ILIO, who also distribute the packs through their own website. We set off to create a sound pack focused on recreating unique and popular synth sounds from a variety of eras and genres, using Omnisphere’s powerful sound-design engine to make all sounds production-ready, featuring full effects and processing to sound as close to the original sounds as possible. As I explored Omnisphere and created more patches, the collection ended up growing and evolving into three separate unique collections: Classic Sounds, Modern Pop and Indie Pop.
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.
Updates & Bundle
We recently updated all three collections with even more presets! If you purchased any of the patch collections before 24th November, you will be able to log into your account on the ILIO website and redownload the free update that includes the additional patches. The Fame Series is also now available as a bundle containing all three collections for the discounted price of $79 for the complete set.
