Successful installation specs. for Omnisphere

Post  moon on Tue Sep 30, 2008 9:38 am

Would anybody who has successfully installed Omnisphere mind posting some details of their rigs and setups ? I'm thinking that it might help to get a general idea of what works.

Mine still hasn't arrived yet but my system is;

Windows XP Pro
Athlon 64 4400x2
4 Gig RAM
2 x 250Gb SATA 2 Spinpoints in striped RAID. That's 130 Gb partition for the OS and audio software and the remaining partition for Omnisphere and other plugs/samples/storage.
I'm running SONAR 7 Studio and my interface is an Emu 1820m.

'fraid mine has arrived but it's currently only on disk 4 of the install.

I've only got 2Gb RAM - hope it's enough.
I thought Win XP would only recognise 2GB - am I seriously mistaken?

No problems installing... No error messages yet.

System:
Intel Core2 Quad 6600
4GB Ram
Windows XP SP3
M-Audio Delta 1010LT
Geforce 9600 GT
Samsung HD321KJ 300GB
Host: FL Studio 8

Still have that 15 sec loadtime, but I'm hoping it will get fixed... Smile

I installed on XP okay. No problems. My only recommendation is that, after installing, you immediately download all the current patches from the Spectr. website: they have new software (and patches) that includes some bug fixes.

I just put it on my C: drive .. I have lots of room there, and I think it must be my most fast drive. But I know most people dont have room on the C: drive, so I can see why some people put it on external drives. Im just saying that because there is Streaming in omnisphere, the drive that holds the 50 GB must be very fast.

Hi Moon,

Well I have almost the same spec in PC running Sonar 7 Producer ....I have a Roland Fantom G6 and an EMU 0404 External interface ......all this is a recent upgrade to my Atari and running Notator!! ....and I'm having a problem with the sound.

Omnisphere is great..However, until playing with after touch or especially the mod. wheel ...then Sonar falls over ....grr either clicking and glitching all over the place or just crashing the program completely.

I've been in tough with Spec' technical guys who suggested trying SaviHost ...and whilst that's not crashing, the sound has a constant clicking noise (quite high pitched and almost pulsing) ...grr..

So all a little stumped, and this has been going of for a few days now ....

All other plug-ins work fine and I can have a dozen largish ones playing at once ( Korg, Proteus, The Roland ones with Producer...like Rapture, EZ Drummers, etc) ...


Of course this may not affect you ...and it would be interesting to read if, running Sonar, that all goes well.

If anyone has any suggestions, that would be great!

Cheers, Stu ;oD

slow laptop vs fast workstation

Post  janke on Thu Oct 02, 2008 3:17 pm

mine working well no broblems on my acer laptop amd turion 64x2 mobil t50 1024 mbytes ram and pci soundblaster audigy 2z5 soundcard win xp..But not so well on my workstation p4 3,2 mhz 2048 mbytes m-audio 2496 win vista........About clipping sound i use asio4all sounddrivers instead of 2496 drivers that fix the problems for me. And spectrasonic have solution to optimize windows to best performance on their supportside for omnispheare and after using that you will se it workaround a little better.

Hi Moon,

Just as an update...my problem has a solution, that you may need, being a Sonar user.

Cakewalk Technical guys said to try turning off the X-Ray feature, which apparently has an impact with some Plugins....and it worked for me....Omnisphere is now full working with any stacked Multi that used CC messages to change sounds, i.e. with the use of Mod Wheels etc....and glitches are gone....yippee.

To fix this, go to Options, Global...then under the General Tab you will see a tick box next to "Enable X-Ray" ...ensure this is un-ticked. Exit the program and start again..done.

Not certain what this may stop me doing in the future, as I haven't used that feature...but for now the work flow is back up to speed.

Cheers, Stu ;oD

Nice one, Stu. I wasn't aware that there was an X-Ray feature but it's good to know in advance.

successfully running in Samplitude

Post  siriusbliss on Tue Oct 07, 2008 6:37 pm

My system specs. in signature.

So far tested...
multi-tracked arpeggiators - recording multiple MIDI tracks
Track freeze
automation.

  • So far all basic 'unique' features in Omnisphere are working successfully in Samplitude Pro.
    So far still using external drive until I install a 2nd internal drive. Also running on my laptop!
    So far rock solid performance.
    So far I have NOT really pushed Omnisphere in a real-world context with full-blown real-time performance, recording, preset change (scary), etc.


Sounds awesome through Scope filters Smile

Carry on,

Greg

p.s. I'm running both my machines using the 3Gig switch in BIOS - effectively getting approximately 3.2G RAM.

I'm running a Mac Pro with dual 2.6ghz Intel with 1tb HD and 5 gigs of Ram with Logic Studio. My main interface is my Access Virus TI. Had some issues with the install but got through them by uninstalling some Spectrasonics loops that were causing the conflict. So far absolutely no problems, runs really smooth and is becoming my go to synth!
Peace

Specs

Post  pod on Thu Dec 25, 2008 7:34 pm

Mac G5 2.5 dual w 10.56, 7 gigs of ram memory, 1 terabyte boot drive, 2nd internal 768 gigs, external 500 gig.
Midiman Midisport 2x2 interface with Yamaha CS1X midi master controller.

No problems that I can see, so far. But I'll need a year to figure out this thing from beginning to end.

Mac Pro Quad Xeon 2.66 GHz, 5 GB RAM, OS X 10.4.11, DP 5.13.

Library is parked on a 300 GB Velociraptor.

The installation was quick and flawless and the whole system runs like a dream.

Kind regards.

'Oldish' Athlon 64 4400x2
2x250Gb SATA 300 Spinpoints in striped RAID ( STEAM on dedicated partition )
4Gb RAM
E-mu 1820m sound card
Roland GR20 guitar synth
Windows XP Pro SP 2.
SONAR 8 Producer
Pr. Fostex active studio monitors- 4".

I had to turn off my AV and firewall to prevent 'dropouts' I also visited Black Viper at;
http://www.blackviper.com/
to consult on which Windows services might be resource hogging and shut down loads of stuff. No dropouts now and even through my 4" monitors this thing sounds superb !!
