Spectrasonics Sonic Extensions Expand Omnisphere with New Sounds, Features and Effects


Spectrasonics has unveiled its new Sonic Extensions, add-ons for Omnisphere 2 that grant users new sounds, features and effects.


Four new themed instruments for Omnisphere 2:


There are currently four Sonic Extensions: Undercurrent, which is designed for “dark electronic scoring”; Nylon Sky, an ambient acoustic guitar; the retro-sounding Unclean Machine; and Seismic Shock, which is suitable for heavy, modern electronica.


At launch, each of these comes with a deep, multi-gigabyte set of multisampled sounds and two new and exclusive effects. Once you have the Sonic Extension, these effects can also be applied to all of your other Omnisphere content, and also to ‘satellite’ Spectrasonics instruments such as Keyscape and Trilian.


In addition, each Sonic Extension has its own bespoke control set, so it looks like an instrument in its own right. Note: You will need to have Omnisphere v2.8 or later installed if you want to run any of them.
