Here are the descriptions of each category according to the CL-Projects Website:

BEHOLD
​the Realm of Omnisphere soundbank for Omnisphere 2. A soundbank containing epic, cinematic  & ambient sounds which can be used for ambient, new age, Berlin school and other types of music and for epic, cinematic soundtracks and film scoring.Science Fiction and even thriller movies come in mind when using this soundbank. But as you can hear in the demos, Realm of Omnisphere can also be used for more modern music.

​THE AMBIENT
​sounds are very environmental, great for film scoring and ambient oriented music. Also ideal for sci-fi, thriller, and even horror movies if you're into that. The Omnisphere Orb gives some of these patches an even more ominous and scary character.

​THE ARPEGGIO
​sounds are a great bonus. These can be used to add rhythmic elements to your tracks. Some are Jean Michel Jarre oriented, based on the Oxygene and Equinoxe albums. I noticed that there are always Jean Michel Jarre type sounds sneaking into my sound libraries. Maybe my preferred genre of music which is Berlin School has something to do with that.

​THE PADS
​are very lush and thanks to the Orb, which is turned on in some of the patches, gives them a lot of evolving motions, which is great for soundtracks, new age and ambient types of music. We can describe these sounds as epic,ominous, mysterious, magical and weird  in some cases. These pads will give you instant inspiration.

​THE STRINGS
​sound section contains sounds that all have to do with strings obviously such as acoustic strings, lush synth strings, vintage strings and even guitar sounds, since we all know also have strings. Guitar sounds layered with voice and string sounds sound great and will give you instant inspiration. The vintage type of strings will throw you back into the 1970's and 80's. The analog synth type strings will enhance any sound. These are great to be used on their own or for layering with other sounds which is demonstrated in some of the multis.

​THE SYNTH
​sounds are more synth-oriented, hence the name. Some of the sounds could be categorized as pad sounds but since they contain less evolving moods, they belong in the synths section. Also epic polysynth sounds, with or without resonance, aggressive synth sounds which cut through the mix like a knife through butter, are also present. Weird pitch modulated sounds are also present thanks to the granular synthesis system.
 


REVIEW
When I began playing CL-Projects 'Realm of Omnisphere' I was immediately drawn into a realm of my own world and imagination. The power of this soundset kept me in wonder and engrossed in a very hypnotic-like state of musicality. All I wanted to do was sit there, write a new track, and really listen to every nuance of each patch. It took awhile to get through and audition each patch but not once did I get tired or bored. Frank Dierickx, the man behind CL-Projects, doesn't know how to skimp on quantity or quality. He has delivered a product worth every price in triplicate.

The value in this library soundset for Omnisphere 2 is one of the best-hidden discoveries I've found this year. Every Omnisphere geek, like myself, will be doing themselves a mistake if they pass up on 'Realm of Omnisphere'.  If you don't believe how powerful this set is just put on a pair of headphones and watch the video below to listen to every patch. With so many well-known sound designers out there, I am constantly shocked when I find one that simply slipped by me and Frank Dierickx of Cl-Projects honestly slipped by me, until this year.

Whether your scoring for a film, tv show, trailer, documentary, it doesn't matter. Whether your writing ambient, new age, chill-out or any other electronic music genre, you will find 'Realm of Omnisphere' has something you want and everything you can use.

Remember to go into stack mode yourself to create your own multis because it is literally limitless with Omnisphere. If you want to purchase this library it is sold on Sampleism and Synthmob.

Final Words:
 if you jump into this realm it will most definitely take you a while to pull yourself away from your Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2. Be prepared to spend some time captivated by this soundset library and trying to pull yourself away from your computer and DAW might be easier said than done.

An easy 5 out of 5 Stars!
