Omnisphere 2

Being a teacher as well as a Grammy winner, I know that the depth of a subject plays a big part on how the learning curve works. Omnisphere is a beast to absorb. I have only had the Groove3 trainer for a few days. So far it seems well organized. I look forward to its guidance

If you've got the coin for the software, you'd be insane not to get the vids

Another great series by Eli. Omnisphere is huge and fairly ugly as its GUI is not exactly intuitive. There's a gazillion options and you'll spend at least that many hours poking at buttons/knobs/menus trying to figure out what they do. Sometimes the effect will be obvious; sometimes very subtle--but it depends on how other options are set so you really need to understand what controls do to have any chance of being able to predict how they'll work under different circumstances or use them efficiently to achieve some effect. These videos will save you a huge amount of time getting to understand it all and it will be money very well spent. In fact, I can't imagine ever finding the time to figure out everything that Eli covers on my own.

Excellent Speaking and Explanation Process

The instructor speaks very well and clearly moves through the process of explaining each feature, without confusing parts or skipping around. They speak at an excellent pace, and are careful to only make mouse movements and other actions which are important. The instructor takes a very complex instrument and makes it easy to approach.

Great Tutorials

I have Omnisphere 2 and have downloaded and watched the Spectrasonics video tutorials. They are good but I needed more input as some things they take for granted that you already know, like the basic stuff. I'm a guitar player and not a synth genius. So I needed the basics as well. I'm a beginner in the synth world. These videos cleared up a lot of things for me.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing drums in high school at age fourteen. Like most kids my age around then, I was into progressive rock. Genesis, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and Yes. They rocked my world. A few short years later though, my musical life changed. While studying music in college I discovered Charlie Parker, Milt Jackson, Sonny Stitt, and John Coltrane. Milt Jackson spoke to me in such a profound way that it left me no choice but to take up vibraphone.

These great players, along with  drummers like Philly Joe Jones, Max Roach, Art Blakey, and Elvin Jones changed not only the way I thought about drumming, but also music - and by extension, life - as a whole. I realized life was meant to be a creative endeavor. The idea of improvising based on a loose set of guidelines and rules permeated into my psyche even when I wasn't holding a pair of drumsticks or mallets. But if I am going to be perfectly truthful, I have to hold Henry Miller and Woody Allen equally responsible for shaping the way I view and experience the world around me. 

2. What training have you had?

I am currently an Apple certified Logic Pro. Young and cocky, and armed with only a partial University degree, I dropped out of school and  began playing steady commercial hotel engagements and jazz gigs when I could. This went on for many years until I decided it was time to complete my degree - which I ultimately did with a major in Political Science and a minor in music. 

It was at this point that I formed my current band Nightshift. We are going in to our twenty third year now - playing commercial one nighters like weddings, corporate events, etc. Don't turn your nose up at it though - it has allowed me a wonderful quality of life. It gave me the freedom to go back to school and complete a post graduate degree in Communications Studies - all the while supporting myself by playing weddings.

3. When did you get into recording?

It was in this graduate program - in the early nineties - that I found myself drawn to the fledgling emerging universe of hard disc recording and midi sequencing. Based on nothing more than the recommendation of one of my band mates who had an old Atari, I jumped in head first and bought a Mac LC ll, along with a version 1.1 of what was then Notator Logic. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. But, in hindsight, it was a decision of epic importance in my life - shaping my future as much as the music of Milt Jackson and Charlie Parker did fifteen years prior. 

I opened up my own commercial home studio in 1998 and began doing a variety of projects, working on radio jingles, artist CD projects, and whatever came my way. A couple of years later a colleague called me up - desperate. He was working at a post production house and one of the editors had just quit. They were doing audio post for a weekly TV series and needed a Pro Tools editor - and fast! And so, once again, I jumped in head first into what would ultimately open up my world even more - the world of Pro Tools. 

4. People you have worked with/for?

Focusing on Logic, I built up a small but loyal client base and my phone kept ringing for Logic tech support and instruction. Film composers and studio owners all over the city were calling me. Even the music stores were giving out my phone number at this point! This kind of stuff becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. The more of it you do, the more calls you get to keep doing it. At least that's the way it should be!

As my Logic chops kept growing, I was hired by an old buddy of mine, Len Sasso, who was then an associate editor at Electronic Musician magazine, and began writing some columns for them. I had a blast doing them - and really learned to focus and express my thoughts in a concise and clear manner. This lead to a collaboration with LA based composer Terry Michael Huud on the 2006 film called Civic Duty - which was certainly one of the highlights of my professional life as a composer. 

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I wake up every day excited to boot up, and create. Whether it's instructional videos, creating music, working with a studio client, performing with my band, or teaching at the schools - my days are filled with what I love doing. Enriched by the stimulation and creative freedom this modern music making software brings to my life. I bring that excitement and passion to each and every training product I create. My years of experience both using and teaching these programs has taught me the best way to make the user comfortable with these complex programs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Great Tutorials I have Omnisphere 2 and have downloaded and watched the Spectrasonics video tutorials. They are good but I needed more input as some things they take for granted that you already know, like the basic stuff. I'm a guitar player and not a synth genius. So I needed the basics as well. I'm a beginner in the synth world. These videos cleared up a lot of things for me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Omnisphere 2 Explained Great, detailed look at the latest Omnisphere 2 software. Covers practically every parameter with examples. Much better than reading the Spectrasonics manual.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from well taught This is a very good intro to Omni. It's a thorough go through all the features. The Spectrasonics site has some tutorial videos but these are mostly Omni 1. These videos teach the interface very well, but they don't go into actually making sounds artistically, beyond mostly 80's basic synth sounds. The most challenging part of Omni for most are the sythesiser editing pages, these are explained very well, but I found myself wondering if I could ever use these sounds because of their lack of natural sound character. Working with your own patches and with audio samples is explained - functionally, but I wanted to know more about how to mangle their sounds properly. I got answers to these questions, but Skippies stuff on Utube is better for hands on sound crafting - after you have learnt the controls via this package

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Another Eli Hit I'd get any training video from Eli any day of the week. This video series will save you so much time when learning Omnisphere. Everything explained is clear and concise. However, I personally think you should have experience with synthesis before jumping into Omnisphere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Perfection Very thorough and informative-took weeks off my learning curve. To be honest, I probably wouldn't have bought Omnisphere 2 had I not known that there was an Eli Krantzberg course on it!

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by from Acceptable Course You get only a good introduction approach, nothing more. Not near to intermediate as advised.
