  1. i would watch a performance of them “playing those instruments” is that “staged fashion”. if it eventually had a beat, or a melody. not into ambient other than observing “that’s a cool sound”.

  2. Wow. Very tempting. I’ve wondered why Diego didn’t do this years ago, as its his specialty. You can bet its polished to the Nth degree.

    I’ve never taken up Omnisphere because I can’t imagine using anything *else* for a very long time if I did. Remember, it comes with over 14,000 presets. Good luck making much use of your other gear with that front & center. Your section of Favorites could number in the thousands, although that’s not a classically bad thing in synth-world, ahem…
