If you're looking for the best software instrument around, look no further and prepare to dive in."

 

Musicplayers
"If you haven't at least heard of Omnisphere by now, you've probably been living under a rock...this is a powerful synth with a huge array of sonic potential—so much so that assuming your analog instrument sounds are covered elsewhere, Omnisphere could provide all the additional in-the-box sounds you ever need."

Resident Advisor
"Omnisphere 2 is something like the Ferrari of soft synths...The sonic power and extreme possibilities are such that if you only buy one synth, hardware or software, over time you'll become more and more grateful that you made it this one.
