Our rating on Empty Fields:
Five out of five stars
“Based on the current release Empty Fields – F.2 is of excellent quality, tone, and vibe. If you are into Omnisphere 2 sound collection you should definitive purchase today and start using now. The first collection begins in the winter time. Pack 2 is all around spring mood, and pack 3 is more emotional. If you do not want to purchase the whole collection, you can buy single packs also – there is an option to upgrade to the full kit.”
With the new released the following enhancements have been released:
- Majority of patches now use 3 or 4 layers. Some presets have not been changed to preserve the original idea or to avoid CPU problems
- Everything now in one big Empty Fields F2 V25 folder. Future pack releases will be integrated into this folder.
- New naming – the P1, P2 etc stands for the pack that contains the preset.
- New categories according to the Spectrasonics setup
- A vast amount of presets has been given the use of aftertouch. The original 2 layers have not been changed to preserve the original patch if desired. Aftertouch has been added to the new layers in some occasions. You can simply disable the 3rd of a 4th layer to go back to the original patch.
The total content is with 5 packs released so far 270 presets, 50 multis and 164 sound sources.
Triple Spiral Audio published a new walkthrough video to showcase this new version.
