This is a concept I rather like the sound of, a different way of making and releasing expansions. From the Plughugger website:
Technique is the first soundset in a new series of upcoming soundsets for Omnisphere 2. Our concept is simple. Take a synthesizer, sample it to bits and recreate its characteristics in Omnisphere while keeping true to its spirit. But also take it into new directions that would never be possible with the original hardware.
First out is Technique, a soundset based on the futuristic looking synth by British synthmaker Modal: The CRAFTsynth. It's tiny, fit in your palm and looks a bit like a toy. But believe us - there is nothing toylike about its sound. Entirely based on DSP, the CRAFTsynth is a synth with an amazing scope: from traditional subtractive synthesis and FM, to total sonic mayhem.
