ILIO introduces an amazing new patch library for Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2™ showcasing the cutting edge of modular synthesis.

Modular synthesis. A vast frontier of new and unusual sonic possibilities (as well as a endless drain on your bank account -- for those simply trying to keep up with regular advancements in technology). If you’ve ever wanted to experiment with the sound of modular synths but haven’t quite dipped your toes in yet, then we’ve got something that you’ll absolutely LOVE.

Jesse Scott of Summer Channel and Kris Northern (Magpie Modular) proudly present a new patch library for Omnisphere 2 called “Hardwired.” In it, you’ll find over 100 never before heard patches made up of the best of both the analog and digital worlds. Encapsulated within this unique library are foreboding cinematic drones, lush and perpetually evolving, as well as texturally intriguing sound beds, quirky effects, gnashing leads, twisted and utterly mangled aural soundscapes, crazy one-shot hits, as well as BPM-locked rhythmic effects and arpeggiations.

Hardwired is a modern producer’s nuclear arsenal of 21st century sounds that will help you construct your next award-winning soundtrack, or add dazzle and sophistication to any kind of music you make. If you’ve ever wanted to have access to the kind of elite sonic weaponry that makes your peers (jealously) ask you, “How did you get those &*$%# sounds?”, then this library is DEFINITELY for you.

Unique Modular soundsources
Omnisphere's advanced synthesis techniques
What could be better?

Centric to ‘Hardwired’ is over 370 MB of brand new, never released source material derived from some of the most cutting edge modular synth technology available on the market. Every sample was meticulously recorded at 48/24 and processed for maximum sound quality. And much like the source material, many of these Omnisphere patches were programmed using multiple random timing sources so that you never get the same exact sound twice. This ensures that you’ll always come up with new and unique ideas for your compositions, and that Hardwired doesn’t become stale and obsolete over time.

“It’s funny, everytime I do one of these Omnisphere 2 libraries, the one I just finished becomes my new personal favorite. This time though, I’m absolutely *floored* at some of the sounds we came up with. I don’t think I can ever go back to NOT using modular synthesis for the basis of all my sound design. I can see what the magical allure is,” says Jesse Scott.

Hardwired loads quickly and easily into Omnisphere 2.1 or higher. Each sound is optimized for use with your modulation wheel for real time control on stage or in the studio.

Hardwired contains over 100 meticulously crafted patches including:

  • 27 Textural/Sound Beds
  • 20 Sound Effects
  • 12 Cinematic Drones
  • 14 BPM Locked Movers/Arpeggiations
  • 10 Hits
  • 2 Vox Based Sound
  • 5 Pads
  • 5 Basses
  • 6 Leads
  • 2 Synth

Hardwired is an Omnisphere 2 patch library like no other. If you’re sick of getting lost in the noise, and instead you’d like to BE THE NOISE, then download this inspiring new set of sounds now from your favorite music retailer or online from ILIO.

About The Sound Designers:

Jesse Scott / Summer Channel is a producer and composer who has released countless original albums and singles, and has written original music with Adam Lambert, Saffron of Republica and many others. He’s also remixed artists such as Madonna, Seal, David Bowie, Paul Oakenfold, Curve, Johnny Cash, and Frank Sinatra (just to name a few). He’s written music that has appeared in major motion pictures such as Bad Boys II, Tomb Raider, and The Art Of War; television shows like CSI and Buffy the Vampire Slayer; and numerous video games. He’s also an accomplished music teacher on lynda.com.

As founder of Magpie Modular, Kris Northern has found the perfect blend of his favorite pursuits in the wide world of modular synthesis; hand building synths made available from the Open Hardware & DIY communities, applying his skills as a graphic designer to make aesthetically pleasing panels, and of course, the generation of weird fascinating sounds. With a pre-existing passion for fractals, non-linear mathematics, and generative and iterative structures, Kris uses that interest to guide his sound design as well as the modules he includes in his custom built modular. When not engrossed in the world of modular he can often be found on bike treks, back country hikes or at hippie festivals poking the wildlife and writing about it in his ongoing series "Hippie Watching in North America"

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
Windows: C:\ProgramData\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.
