Omnisphere Amara is a collection of 500 patches for Omnisphere 2.5.
In 2018, I worked on a number of TV dramas in the UK and around Europe, and the spine of this new library is made up of sounds devised for those projects. There’s a real mix of modern analogue synths and organic sound design; pitting gritty, emotional circuitry against the delicate and esoteric nature of real instruments.
Border-hopping, political intrigue; intricate personal dramas, painted against wider, social backdrops; devastating murders that haunt communities for years: this is Amara’s darkly beautiful soul.
Shadowy, taut, analogue pulses, sequences and rhythms extracted from classic synthesizers; pianos, strings and mallets deconstructed and then carefully patched back together; all hewn together to provide a rich and immersive library, full of punchy bass, sumptuous pads, expressive instruments and brooding textures. Omnisphere Amara provides big drama on a small scale.
Alongside the sounds created for bespoke projects, Amara is inspired by soundtracks to shows such as Broadchurch, Silent Witness, Disparue, Trapped/Ófærð, Luther, The Last Panthers and Engrenages/Spiral; and inspired by artists such as Olafur Arnalds, Sheridan Tongue, Nils Frahm, Frans Bak, Ben Lukas Boysen, Johann Johannsson and Clark.
Its broad sonic palette engages with neo-classical, minimalist techno and post rock and blends them together to form a unique library of sounds.
From Reykjavik to Lyon, via London, Copenhagen and Berlin: Amara brings you an essential collection for modern drama scoring.
You will need version 2.5 of Omnisphere to use all Amara’s functions.
