Omnisphere: Creating A Guitar-Style Lead

How do you create a powerful guitar-style lead in Omnisphere? In this video I take apart a guitar-style lead from my soundbank Fractal to show you how I created it from scratch, and to demonstrate just how great Omnisphere is for leads. All in under 15 minutes!

In this video I discuss:

  • Using the solo and legato functions to create a smooth lead
  • Using the unison on the DSP waveforms to fatten your sound
  • Shaping the character of your sound using two filters in series
  • Getting that guitar-style sound by using Omnisphere’s distortion effects
