PULSAR is a collection of 121 patches for
Omnisphere 2™ containing BPM-locked basses, synths, leads, pads, and FX with sounds ranging from aggressive to ethereal.
PULSAR is the latest Omnisphere 2 powerhouse patch collection from MIDIhead. As the name suggests, all of the 100+ sounds in PULSAR breathe with energetic, driving pulsations using Omnisphere 2’s extensive menu of Arpeggiators, LFOs, Envelopes, and Effects. These original patches transcend genre, providing rhythmic energy to electronic, ambient, pop, EDM and film music. Nearly all of the sounds are generated using Omnisphere 2’s DSP waveforms. Why shell out for a custom pulsing virtual instrument? Launch Omnisphere 2 and put your tracks in motion with PULSAR.
PULSAR focuses on the use of the modulation wheel AND aftertouch for fast, expressive, sound-altering control. Many patches are also optimized for use with
The Orb, giving you even more real-time control on stage and in the studio.

Q: Why is there a .omnisphere file in the zip file I downloaded?
A: This is the new format for loading third-party patches into Omnisphere 2. Please read the easy-to-follow instructions, also contained inside the zip file you downloaded and you'll be up and running in seconds!
Q: How do I load these patches into Omnisphere?
A: Please read the installation guide that came included in the zip file with the patches you downloaded.
Q: Why am I not seeing these patches in Omnisphere?
A: Please follow this checklist:
1. Make sure you have downloaded and installed all the latest updates from your Spectrasonics User account for Omnisphere 2. You can do that: HERE
2. Make sure you don’t have multiple "STEAM" folders. In some cases users have reported having multiple instances of the "STEAM" folder on different external hard drives. Only ONE path can be utilized so if you placed the patches in a "STEAM" folder that is not active, the patches will not be read.
Here is an example of the default installation path for the "STEAM" folder:
OSX: Macintosh HD/Users/Library/Application Support/Spectrasonics/STEAM
In most cases, you will have loaded all your Omnisphere 2 data files on a secondary or external hard drive. The aforementioned paths will then include an alias/shortcut to the correct path.
One way to test which path is being utilized is to load any patch in Omnisphere 2, then save that patch by clicking the "Utility" icon at the top left, and selecting "Save Patch". You’ll need to select a sub-folder inside the "User" folder that is selected for you by default. For testing purposes, simply create a new folder called "TEST" and then save the patch there. Next, click the "Refresh" button (circle arrow), located at the bottom of the "Patch Edit" screen.
You should now have a "User" Directory in the "Directory" drop-down menu. Now, navigate to this directory in Finder/Explorer to locate the new "TEST" folder you created. If it exists, you are in the right place. You can delete the "TEST" folder once the correct path is confirmed.
3. Make sure you have restarted your DAW, along with Omnisphere 2. Again, try clicking the "Refresh" button (circle arrow), located at the bottom of the "Patch Edit" screen if you did not perform step 2 above.
4. Make sure you are clicking on the "Patch" screen and not the "Multi" screen. The "Patch" screen is located directly underneath the "Omnisphere" logo where the "Multi" screen is located above the logo.
5. Try restarting your entire computer as a last resort.
