Omnisphere Altura is a collection of 120 brand new cinematic patches for Spectrasonics’ Omnisphere 2.6 synthesizer. It comes with 251 new sound sources, including custom recordings with Meinl Cymbals’ artist and session drummer Horacio París, as well as renowned session bassist Chalo Trejos.
This is not a happy soundset. Omnisphere Altura is as dark as it gets, with crushed, mangled, dirty patches that evoke tension, fear, anguish, desperation and hopelessness in spades. Inspired by the work of composers like Charlie Clouser (“American Horror Story”), Mick Gordon (“Doom Eternal”), the Newton brothers (“Extinction”), Colin Stetson (“Hereditary”) and Mark Korven (“Our House”), Omnisphere Altura provides you with plenty of sounds to make your horror, thriller, crime or dark drama score shine.
Many patches in Omnisphere Altura use multiple layers, so you can mute the layers you don’t need if a patch is too busy for your purposes, or if you just want to use a particular layer. Omnisphere Altura also makes extensive use of the modulation wheel. In many cases, it may completely change the patch into something totally different, so we encourage you to have fun with it.
