How to load patches into Omnisphere 2

Please  note: This video was created on a Mac (OS X 10.8.5) designed to mainly assist Mac OS X 10.7 (and higher) users with locating their 'hidden'  Users - Library folder. The video and guide then goes through where to place the additional patches so they are detected in Omnisphere.

Windows  PC users can still follow this video to see where to place your additional patches. However you will just need to ensure you have  located your Spectrasonics folder and then follow the guide / video from here or please view below.

Overview of Video and Guide Details:

Download your purchased expansion library with the Time+Space Connect installer - for ease select your Desktop when asked where you would like to place these files.

Once the download is finished, open the downloaded contents folder into a window.

For Mac users - To locate the CORRECT location to place your files, from within the Finder menu (across the top of your screen) select 'Go'.

With the Go 'drop-down' menu up on the screen hold down your 'alt' key on your keyboard to 'unhide' the Library folder.

Select the Library folder and double-click the 'Application Support' folder.


Where to place the Patches:

Now locate your 'Spectrasonics' folder and go to 'STEAM', 'Omnisphere', 'Settings Library'.

Here you will find a 'Patches' and a 'Multis' folder.

Double-click the 'Patches' folder.

From your desktop, double-click your downloaded folder to open it into a second window.

Place the two windows next to each other so you can see both windows - your 'Patches' folder and your new content folder.

Within the 'Patches' folder, create a new folder and name it after the developer of the library (ILIO, Audiority or The Unfinished). Now double-click this new folder to open it.

Now simply highlight the new patches folders from the second window and drag&drop them into your new folder.

Please note - the Audiority bundle (Trapshere library) also includes bonus Wav files. These are just for your use, Omnisphere does not need them. You can place them with your usual sound library files if you wish.

Please note - The Unfinished libraries contain 'Patches' presets and 'Multis' presets. Please ensure you place the PATCHES into this Patches folder  and then go back to the 'Omnisphere' 'Settings Library' window to locate your 'Multis' folder. Then just create a new folder in here called 'The  Unfinished' and drag&drop the additional MULTIS into this folder. This stage is not covered in the video.

Now the files are in the correct location. Open Omnisphere in your DAW / music host.

When the Omnisphere interface loads, please press the 'CHECK FOR UPDATES'  button (top-left) and ensure all green lights are showing and that you have installed all of the needed updates. Without the latest update, some presets may not work correctly!

From the Patch Browser within Omnisphere, go to 'Directory' and select your new patches.

If the developer folder does not show, try refreshing the Omnisphere browser window (with the bottom-left circular arrow button).
