Thank you for purchasing Essential Omnisphere.


1. Check if your version of Omnisphere is up to date (Spectrasonics Website).

2. Keep a backup of this bundle and other products for easy later reinstallation or possible troubleshooting.

3. For Windows/Mac users, locate the Steam folder, then, copy the folder called “Edgar Mantilla” into the directory: Steam/Omnisphere/Settings Library/Patches

How to Locate the Steam Folder:

For Windows Users this is the file directory (Windows Vista, 7 and 8):


(For Windows XP users):

C:\Documents And Settings\All Users\Application Data\Spectrasonics/Steam

For Mac Users this is the file directory:

Macintosh HD/Users//Library/Application Support/Spectrasonics/Steam

If you can’t see your Library Folder on Mac:

In the Finder, choose Go > Go to Folder.

In the Go To Folder dialog box, type ~/Library

Click Go.

After this, launch your DAW, run Omnisphere and press the button “Refresh” (Next to Play and Sort buttons).


If this is not your first time purchasing my patches, only copy the content inside the folder into the previous Edgar Mantilla folder in your computer. Do not replace or remove the previous folder.


You can use the LPF and HPF Master Filters in your Omnisphere instance for different results with your patches. This could make your sound brighter or darker.
