Specifically, most of what I've been doing is formatting a CompactFlash card to be readable by the sampler. The formatting itself is fine; I've just had trouble deciding what I want to load in the sampler, and in order to use as few CompactFlash cards as possible, combined with some of the samples being recycled in Omnisphere and Stylus RMX, I decided to limit the Spectrasonics-originated samples to my favorites of the non-rhythmic sounds exclusive to the CD's (not recycled for Omnisphere or Stylus RMX, in other words).
That being said, I am a bit puzzled by the choices on the part of the brand of what to include in Omnisphere. I went through the Bizarre Guiar CD, which is more or less the Distorted Reality series on guitar, and almost all of the non-rhythms in the CD, as well as a lot of bonus content, made it into the soundsource library in Omnisphere. This is pretty puzzling for a product that advertises having the only the best of their classic products, especially because:
a) Bizarre Guitar did not sell quite as well as Distorted Reality 1 or 2,
b) Distorted Reality 1 and 2, 1 especially, have much less included in the VST. For instance, no sound menus, which is what almost all of the classic drum sounds from them depended on. Granted, they fit better into Stylus RMX, but they weren't included in that, either!
This makes me thankful that I was lucky enough to get Distorted Reality 1 and 2 legally despite their now being legacy products. Distorted Reality 1 especially has a lot of classic sounds that didn't make it into Omnisphere for whatever reason, from the distorted drums in Invader Zim ("Phuzz Drumz") to the flanging drone representing the agents in The Matrix ("Bosnia").
In other news, I finally saw that the Radio Pure Gently program that featured my latest interview is up! Tune into 3:09:54 for the interview.
