Omnisphere is not in any way a plugin for traditional rompler sounds. It does not excel at strings, pianos, brass, voice etc etc. That's not what it is, and not what it's designed for.

What you're paying for is a vast collection of interesting sampled oscillator sources and a relatively deep synthesis engine with excellent built in FX, a good sequencer/arp and an extensive mod section. Oh, and thousands and thousands of excellent presets (if you ignore the tragic EDM additions in Omni 2).

Whether it's 'worth it' (I'll never understand that question ) is entirely up to the user.

I don't recall ever seeing it on sale.
