Omnisphere “Error loading waveform”

Please make sure your Omnisphere installation is up to date. You can check if there are any updates from the start-up screen of Omnisphere or you can click the Spectrasonics logo on the interface of Omnisphere. Make sure everything is up to date, in particular the Soundsources.

If everything is up-to-date try to delete the zmap.index file found below. It’s harmless to remove:

PC: ProgramData/Spectrasonics/STEAM/Omnisphere/Soundsources/User

Mac:Macintosh HD/Users/yourname/Library/Application Support/Spectrasonics/STEAM/Omnisphere/Soundsources

Restart your DAW and insert Omnisphere 2 again and it will automatically create a new zmap.index file.

I get an error installing the Omnisphere soundset

If you get an error during installation of an Omnisphere soundset, such as “this package does not contain any files” then move the .omnisphere file into the Spectrasonics folder itself and try installing it from there. On PC the Spectrasonics folder could be C: ProgramData/Spectrasonics and on Mac it’s likely Users/Username/Library/Application Support/Spectrasonics.

If you cannot see the ProgramData path above on PC then it’s because it’s a hidden folder, refer to the page below on how to show hidden folders:
