    When can i buy Omnisphere?

    Hi.

    I know Omnisphere will be released on september 15 but can I actually go to my local store and buy it that day? Since I live in Norway and the closest Spectrasonics distributor is located in Sweden I guess the package has to do a lot of traveling before it reaches my local store. The reason I ask this is that I plan to take a week off from work so I can play around with Omnisphere and they need a four week notice. I don't want to risk taking a week off and Omnisphere hasn't arrived yet.

    No idea - but I'd like to know too. It would also be nice if we could pre-order it and have it shipped to us by the 15th!

    Probably won't happen - but we can hope....

    If you get Omnisphere new from our Distributor in Sweden, it may be possible for them have it in stock on September 15th (hopefully!)

    When the stores have them in stock depends on a number of factors, so that's difficult to say. Probably all dealers worldwide will have them in the stores after the 15th, since they go to the distributors first.

    If you are upgrading from Atmosphere, that will come from Spectrasonics directly. We will be opening the upgrade pre-ordering at our online techshop around the 8th of September and then it would depend on when those units go out the door here and shipping method the customer selected, etc.

    Hope that's useful! Obviously, it's not possible to be 100% precise at this point.

    Hi Eric

    Will you or your distributors be accepting pre-orders, so for example can I order from the Spectrasonics shop or would I be better off ordering from TimeSpace in the UK?

    TIA

    We only sell the upgrades for Atmosphere users direct in the Spectrasonics techshop. Boxed units are sold exclusively through our distributor/dealer network.

    or would I be better off ordering from TimeSpace in the UK?
    If you are not an Atmosphere user, then yes.

    Thanks for the reply Eric. I have Atmosphere so I guess I'll be ordering directly from the Spectrasonics shop. I ordered the Stylus RMX SAGE expander bundle from you around christmas last year and the delivery took around 2 weeks (it was christmas after all) so I guess I can calculate a delivery time of one week or so. It looks like I'll be postponing my vacation by a week then.

    .
    Does that mean the upgrades won't be box-shipped? I for one would welcome saving the shipping costs even if it means a 24-hour download for the big library.

    Given the huge Atmosphere User base, I would imagine that maybe 90% of Omnisphere buyers could be upgrade customers. Presumably Spectrasonics are ready for the huge demand.

    No...it's definitely NOT downloadable. 40gig is just a bit too big for a download product I think. :-)

    The upgrade package includes the packet of DVDs and the booklet, but not the big box.

    Not necessarily. People made the same prediction about the Stylus Classic to Stylus RMX upgrade when we did that, but since the new instrument (RMX) appealed to a lot wider group of users, upgrades actually only represented a very small percentage of our sales....even though Stylus was the best-selling instrument plug-in of all time when we did the RMX upgrade.

    We think the same will be true for Omnisphere, because it's so much more of a vast and unlimited instrument in musical scope than Atmosphere. So the majority of sales will very likely be brand new users, just like it was for RMX.

    Presumably Spectrasonics are ready for the huge demand.l
    Oh yeah! :-)

    Hopefully the dealers will be too and they'll get their ordering in with us early.
