Spectrasonics Expands The Keyscape Creative Library For Omnisphere
Those brilliant minds at Spectrasonics never cease to amaze me. Less than a couple of months ago they released a major update (1.5) for Keyscape (see our Keyscape review). To celebrate International Piano Day (the 88th day of the year), they introduced a special new Double Felt Grand piano for Keyscape, available to users as a free update. This v1.5 release represents the first time that Spectrasonics has added a brand new instrument to Keyscape.
Needless to say, this Double Felt Grand piano is a fantastic take on the ubiquitous felt piano theme, as you would expect from Spectrasonics.
Check out the video below to hear the piano in action.
They didn’t stop there though. Yesterday the company released a newly expanded edition of the Keyscape Creative library, bringing the total to over 1500 Omnisphere patches specially designed for users who also own Keyscape. The vast library of sounds was produced by renowned sound designer Eric Persing, showcasing the creative work of the award-winning Spectrasonics Sound Development team.
The expanded library features a tremendous variety of new patches showcasing the power of combining the latest features of both Keyscape and Omnisphere (see our Omnisphere review). Keyscape’s richly detailed keyboard sounds, including the new Double Felt Grand, have been dramatically transformed using Omnisphere’s deep synthesis capabilities and effects.
The Keyscape Creative library offers a wide variety of inspiring sounds for modern music production and is available now as a FREE update to registered users.
WARNING: this thing is seriously addictive. Put a timer or you’ll spend at least of a couple of hours going through the patches without even noticing! 😉
