It's been a week since I bought Omnisphere and I'm really happy with it. It's my second bought VST instrument, the first one being Vienna Instruments SE+.
There are 4 things that convinced me to buy this product:
1 - The sound quality.
2 - It works in 64 bit mode.
3 - I saw a long track of updates and support from the company.
4 - Eric Persing, and the excellent videos from the product.
Of those, the third is the most important for me. I can buy a hardware synth, and after many years I can still sell it or trade it for another instrument. The same doesn't apply to software instruments, they are mostly short lived, and licenses make them hard to resell. That's why I try to be most sure of the support by the company before I buy anything, I need to know that my investment will last many years, and that I will have the chance to upgrade for better.
Not all is perfect, the software suffers from small bugs and annoying behaviour in certain areas, from my point of view, but in general as I said I'm pretty impressed and very happy with the sound quality. I feel very inspired by it.
I work in a video game company, and this usually involves extreme care with details and "playability". Seeing such attributes in this instrument makes me feel like at home
I'm even thinking about buying Trillian and Stylus RMX too, but those will take some more time since I have to save some money first...
That's all, I wanted to say HELLO! and post my first impressions
