Really a great VST plug-in, great sounds, huge sound bank but.. You will need;
1- Very strong Computer, 64 bit is a lot better than 32bit system, with a lot of RAM (at least 8GB of RAM)
EX: some sounds (samples) are up to 2GB.. So imagine when you start STACKING sounds or upload 8 different sounds in LIVE MODE... Read more
you need RAM & processing.
2- A DAW soft/sequencer because OMNISPHERE 2 is NOT A STAND ALONE but a VST plug-in.
3- A good soundcard for LOW LATENCY.
4- Be ready to spend a few hours (3 to 10 hrs) to learn the beast, if you meet the requirements... Welcome to a fantastic world of creation.
Why you want to buy OMNI 2? IMHO.. The main reason is.. The creation of new sounds..
