Do you have Logic, Jake? The rumour was Apple we're going to incorporate it as an update. Doubt if it'll be free, mind

I lack Logic (possibly in more ways than one). I'm more of a Cubase & Renoise kind of guy

I'm sure you'd love it my Mothy chum!
Next time I see you I'll give you a quick demo of the original Omnisphere. It's full of fab sounds.

I've always avoided Omnisphere out of fear of D50-itis (i.e. using a preset that's so blindingly obviously an Omnisphere preset that it bites you in the arse for evermore... like the start of Skyscraper)

Is it worth getting over that?

Absolutely! Loads of the sounds are so responsive to playing styles and that they would probably sound totally different in different hands.
Like, for example, they would sound infinitely better if you were playing them rather than my ham-fisted attempts ...  ;)

I agree that in Jem's hands Omnisphere would really sing.

I know what you mean, but I think that out of 10,000 patches it ships with, only about 4000 fall in to that category. Remember also, apart from its sample set and audio mangling features it is also a brilliant synth. Like... I no longer have access virus envy :)
