Sound on Sound Magazine
"With new sounds numbering in their thousands and a search facility that delivers the inspirational as a matter of routine, upgrading still seems like a no-brainer to me, whether you care for the technical advances or not. The best software synth just got better. ...this is a solid upgrade that successfully avoids any sense of bloat or feature-creep."


Future Music
"Ultimately, Omnisphere 2 is a tremendous follow-up that takes the synth to the next level and beyond....it's an instrument that you simply have to own."


Music Tech Magazine
"A superb upgrade on one of the finest virtual instruments money can buy. Omnisphere 2 oozes class and sophistication and should be an essential purchase for all."


DJ Times
"This is a fantastic upgrade to an already legendary virtual synth."


Sonic Scoop
"It's not an exaggeration to say there are worlds inside this instrument, and it would be possible to create an entire rock opera, cinematic score, or techno masterpiece using only the sounds within Omnisphere. If you're looking for the best software instrument around, look no further and prepare to dive in."


"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."


"Omnisphere is... a tool that any musician/composer/producer should consider adding to his shopping list."


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. Omnisphere remains one of the deepest synthesisers, hard or soft, that exists."


Downbeat Magazine
"This synth is a must-have for any virtual synthesist. The upgrade for current users is ...well worth it for one of the few virtual synthesizers that can truly be called a classic."
