Heatseaker Patch Library for Spectrasonics Omnisphere



The latest from sound designer Michael Babbitt and Ilio

Spectrasonics Omnisphere continues to be the gold standard for softsynths – which is to say there are none better, not that there’s such a thing as one single best instrument. But it’s very popular for good reason, and it comes with a fantastic preset library… yet it also attracts a lot of patch development such as developer Michael Babbitt’s latest, which we’ll let distributor Ilio describe as follows. – NB

Westlake Village, CA – November 2, 2023 – Leading distributor of virtual instruments and audio processing software ILIO and sound designer MIDIhead announce a new collection of patches for Spectrasonics Omnisphere called “Heatseeker.” Heatseeker is handcrafted with energetic, sizzling sounds for high-intensity music. This sonic toolkit of new sounds includes overdriven and punchy basses, searing leads, blistering pads, scorching FX, poly synths, plucks, and several tempo-locked fireworks to add motion. Also included are heavy guitar riff emulations, created with all the powerful DSP that Spectrasonics Omnisphere has in its toolbox. The patches in Heatseeker transcend genres, lending themselves to a wide variety of compositional applications.

This new patch collection is now available from ILIO and its vast dealer network.

Sometimes you need sounds with serious heat. Whether lighting up some Breakbeat, Drum and Bass, Dubstep, Cyberpunk, Hardstyle, Acid, Alt Rock, Synth Rock, Hard Pop, Filmscore, EDM, or any other genre that needs fiery intensity, Heatseeker is ready to ignite.

Every patch is meticulously designed with hours of dedication, crafted using Omnisphere’s DSP waveforms, carefully selected filters, modulation, and effects, all individually forged to inspire you. Further, every patch includes modulation wheel assignments for more expressive control. In many instances, added aftertouch assignments further enhance your playing experience. With 138 patches included, Heatseeker will stoke your creative flames for years to come.
