From producer Gary Sexton, Ambient Pads Vol 2 for Omnisphere 2 seeks to provide patches that are “playable and usable” while also being “inspiring and full of motion”!
My hope was to create sounds that are:
- dark and subtle enough to be used for underscoring a speaker
- interesting enough to be used as a texture when only a few notes are sustained
- flexible enough to be used in both soft and loud moments in most ballads
Many of these patches originated from songs I’ve been producing for church over the past 18 months. When producing, I often like to layer several sounds together and add 3rd party FX to create something truly unique and full of vibe. This patch release recreates those layered sounds and 3rd party FX that I like to use but in a single patch format and utilizing only Omnisphere’s built-in FX. Special attention was paid to the mod wheel to transform each patch by either adding some brightness, shimmer reverb, or bringing in another layer(s). I hope you find these patches fresh, inspiring, and usable for your context (whether that be live or studio).

Included are 25 patches and 1 multi.

Very nice variety of patches. All of them are useable for worship sounds and blend perfectly. Thank you and God bless!

Incredible sounding patches! Just absolutely beautiful, so well crafted and designed. These have become my go to pads. Been coupling them with Keyscapes and Noire from NI, sounds great. Indeed the Valhalla Reverbs are a must have with these, however, if you don’t own them, you can make your own Shimmer on Ableton, there are a few tutorials on YouTube that are good 🙂 Enjoy and thanks for providing these wonderful patches!

Probably my favourite sounds on Omnisphere at the moment. I’ve been trying all sorts of VSTs and packs and whatever looking for the sounds that will really work with current worship songs and this gives me exactly what I need.

Well put together for sure. AP Vol. 1 is great, dare I say this one is even better. I can honestly say I love each patch/multi and that’s rare for me!! Very inspirational sounds…they make me want to get creating right away. Keep ’em coming!

Simplemente asombroso! cada pad es muy útil en la adoración. Tiene un carácter orgánico y moderno a la vez. Muy recomendado.

Love the CS-80 String Shimmer! Honestly, just blending those organ drones has been so fun to experiment with Ableton live and really coming up with some amazing inspiration. Adding Valhalla Shimmer has been hands down money and I simply can’t get enough of it!

WOW just wow, another masterpiece of a patch library. I was a huge fan of the original ambient pads release but this one just takes it up to another level! I love how I still cant decide which pads to use from both releases so I end up using both at times it’s so fun! If your looking for great sounding pads, this is the library for you!

This bundle is the perfect companion to Ambient Pads Vol 1. With deep, rich low end and shimmery highs, these pads can be shaped into any texture needed with some simple filtering. This pack offers very unique drone pads that contain beautiful motion without being distracting. The demo video offers great examples of the sonic power and range of this bundle. If you are a satisfied owner of Ambient Pads Vol 1, you need to try this bundle!

I love this library!! I also own Ambient Pads Vol. 1. They’re both “must haves”!! I definitely agree with reviews from Fabbro, Omar, Josh, and Justin! As I play through the patches, I am bombarded with inspiration! I love the little twists that is done to the Hammond Organ. The morphing sounds of many of the patches are just exquisite! Great collection of sounds for $20. Again, this is a “must have” for owners of Omnisphere! Incredible, relevant, epic, amazing sounding pads!!

First off , I’m a big supporter of all things TWS. I already had AP Vol. 1 , and loved it, so I jumped on this one . Man, let me put it this way, It’s not the quantity , it’s the quality that counts!, EVERY patch in this library is fire. Loved the take on the organ patches too. The pads in this library are SOOO good. They’re usable for live underscoring, and have beautiful textures and movement. Lot’s of depth and well balanced. well done.

This patches are amazing. Very inspiring, usable – “must have patches”. I hope TWS make more edition The Ambient Pads. I will purchese for sure! If you are ambient/chillout/cinematic producer (but also other kind genres too) you must buy this stunning stuff! Thanks!
