Synth : Omnisphere 2.6 Download size : 504 KB Required Version : v2.6 Release Date : 3/5/2019
Omnisphere Kubo is a soundset for Spectrasonics’ power synth Omnisphere 2.6, containing 128 cinematic patches.
Majority of Omnisphere Kubo patches were created for the first MIDIssonance collaboration with BAFTA and Ivor Novello nominated composer David Housden for his score for video game Q.U.B.E. 2. You can read the interview with David over on MIDIssonance blog. More about David on his official website here. Listen to his Ivor Novello nominated Q.U.B.E. 2 score here.
Main influences for this soundset were Solar Fields’ fantastic Mirror’s Edge score and music of post-rock giants such as Sigur Rós and Hammock. Cliff Martinez’s work on Solaris and Drive was also one of the main influences in creation of this palette of custom sounds that David used on his Q.U.B.E. 2 score.
All those influences resulted in a collection of unique sounds with organic character with plenty of acoustic soundsources processed in a variety of ways – some more traditional sounding and some mangled and transported to another sonic world.
As usual, patches are carefully programmed with detailed modulation capabilities, offering much more detail per every preset, controlled usually by CC#1 and velocity.
Soundset is comprised of:
• 42 Arps, basslines & sequences
• 5 Hybrid organic instruments
• 7 Pianos & keyboards
• 21 Pads
• 12 Synth basses & bass drones
• 11 Synth Leads
• 28 Textures
• 2 Guitars
To use Omnisphere Kubo, you need to have v2.6 installed (patch and software version). To install it, open Omnisphere 2 and from the Utility menu choose Install .omnisphere – see HERE.
