After many years of user requests (and whole forums filled with workarounds) Spectrasonics has released new Mac and Windows standalone applications of the company’s award-winning Keyscape, Omnisphere 2, Trilian and Stylus RMX virtual instruments. Perfect timing for NAMM 2018. A new smart updater feature makes it far simpler to know if there are version updates/fixes. New updates are free to current users.

Spectrasonics Updates Virtual Instruments with Standalone Modes
The standalone versions are now included with each product and are available now as a FREE update for existing customers. The streamlined new apps enable playing Spectrasonics instruments without using a DAW, providing a simple solution for live musicians looking to switch to a laptop based setup. The design focus of the new standalone apps is on quick access, high performance and outstanding sound quality.

A new remote control loading feature has also been added to the new Omnisphere 2.4 and Keyscape 1.1 updates, which allows any patches or multis to be selected using MIDI Program Changes, CC messages or even by triggering Notes on the keyboard. This new feature makes it easy to create a custom setup for quick patch changes from a controller during a live performance, or from a DAW within a song. This is an especially useful feature for the visually impaired community who can now easily access the sounds via physical buttons and controls.
