Omnisphere Colossus III is a collection of 400 patches for Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2.
The third part of the Colossus series continues where the others left off, providing a wealth of sounds designed for atmospheric, Hollywood underscore and action music. Colossus III is particularly inspired by the work of Harry Gregson-Williams and James Newton Howard.
It is full of punch, subtlety, dynamism and depth. Driving basslines, dark percussion, creamy pads, delicate pianos, moving guitars, intricate soundscapes and moody textures all blend together to provide a powerful toolbox of cinematic sounds.
Colossus III expands upon the previous two instalments by adding more percussive and organic elements. New drum content includes dusty top lines, deep rhythms and even breakbeats. Plus, there are a wealth of acoustic and mallet sequences, as well as lighter, more ambient soundscapes.
Each patch is carefully programmed and features compelling options via the modwheel.
Tension, thrills, emotion, ambience… Colossus III delivers them all.
There is a also a Deluxe version of Colossus III that features 50 bonus patches that use the soundsources from the Bob Moog Tribute Library.
Omnisphere Colossus III is available for £59.99 +VAT. The Deluxe version is £64.99 +VAT – and you will need the Bob Moog Tribute Library to use the bonus patches.
