Omnisphere: Creating A String Machine Pad

Is Omnisphere any good for creating those vintage string machine-style sounds? In this video I take apart a modernised string machine-esque pad from my soundbank Dystopia to show you how I created it from scratch.

In this video I discuss:

  • Omnisphere’s String Machine sound sources
  • Using the Granular Engine to give vintage sounds a modern twist
  • Layering sound sources with the DSP engine
  • Using effects to give your patches a polished, modern sound
