Elevator — Bi-Directional Sonics For Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2
ILIO presents a brand-new patch library for Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2 that harnesses the power of Omnisphere’s powerful Modulation Matrix and multiple layers, a high-speed vertical express for your productions. Elevator reimagines how the modulation wheel is used to control sources (e.g., pitch, depth, filter, speed, delay, reverb amount, waveform shape, symmetry, hard sync, FM, Ring Modulation, movement, and color), meticulously programmed to modulate each element simultaneously. Turn your musical creations into epic builds, risers, falls, transitions, stops, and create drama, movement, and anticipation.
Elevator is designed for film, trailers, promo, video game, and electronic music production.
Elevator includes original sound recordings of a Lamborghini drive-by, fireworks, an assortment of big drum hits, a Nerf air gun engine, a metal door slam, and more. Included with these recordings are select sounds from the Omnisphere Core Library and DSP waveforms to bring you a hybrid of organic and electronic sounds that will ignite your productions.
"I love the fact these patches have so much color variation using modulation and aftertouch. That kind of programming really makes for usable, musical sounds that really have impact. Mod wheel like that always gets me smiling and my heart pumping!" —Paul Spaeth | SPAETHMUSIC, INC.
Introducing the "Tetra" Patch
Elevator is unlike any other 3rd party patch library available for Omnisphere. Given most of the 112 patches were programmed with all 4 Layers utilized in a single Part (Omnisphere's 8 multitimbral Parts contain 4 Layers, each), you can combine or solo each Layer to isolate and perform a more "thinned out" version. This gives you hundreds more sound possibilities! In the browser, simply search for the word "Tetra" or select it from within Omnisphere's Attributes menu to discover them all.
Designed for Expression
All patches have been programmed with modulation wheel and aftertouch (especially fun for next-gen keyboard owners)! Open filters, add tempo-pulsing amplitude, vibrato, longer reverb and delay tails, and more using the additional, expressive control that aftertouch offers you!
The modulation wheel is an important part of Elevator's control. It's the key controller for "elevating" each patch. The detailed Comments will guide you (along with your ear), on how to get the best use out of the programming. You may find yourself using the modulation wheel, pitch wheel, and aftertouch at the same time, giving you some very interesting results!
"I found this patch set to be instantly and overwhelmingly useful in my future projects. Closer inspection of the layers reveals clever programming details that I didn't initially hear on my first pass. When paired with a decent controller with aftertouch, these sounds spawned expressive themetic ideas in no time flat!" —Robert Dorschel
A Variety of "Elevating" Sounds
Elevator has evolved quite drastically from initial pre-release, adding synths, pads, basses, and even more big, smashing hits and FX. This newly added variety of sounds will give you all the tools you need to create your next production from beginning to epic finish. Included are 112 patches, with 85 being "Tetra" patches. With that, you'll have well over 300 unique new sound variations at your disposal in Elevator!
Included in Elevator
Elevator is fully Unify compatible. Details are in the Installation Guide, found within the downloadable package after purchase.
