sylenth soundbanks recomendation for a tired person

Hey lads ,well recently i was reading a lot how much people think sylenth can sound similar to certain otb synths and decided to give it a try.

I managed to finish one techno track with it and sounds good for me,i like the sound of this synth.

BUT what i hate are useless uninspiring prests,drowned in fx etc that are useless even for supporting farts during diarrhorea in toilet.

and i am not a great synth wizard. In my track i tweaked presets and managed to get something really nice,but i would love to know


if there are some soundbanks that actually are usefull ,sound great from scratch,insrpiring,not drowned in idiotic processing just to sound 'large' with ton of reverb and then dissapear when you remove it ? ?


I will add that my piece of pie is techno,progressive house etc kind mostly . I checked few free banks,i checked a lot of demos of commercial banks online and they are tragibad ,totally hindering full strenght of this great softsynth....

I see you posting that you are not a synth wizard rather frequently.

Stop lamenting, educate yourself and become one. Bootstraps!

Hey kacperson wouldn't it be nice if you can make the sounds you find inspiring all on your own?
Whilst I know this thread is not about you making your own sounds, I will recommend you learn a synth and at least give it a go. When I first started making music I only used presets. Then finally I said I want to make my own sounds so I read as much as I could about subtractive synthesis.
I have attached a file for you, it is a document I put together with information from the net, it is now a PDF file, this information is available to anyone who does a search on google so hope not breaking rules by posting such a file here on GS.
Read this document then read it again then read it again.
If you like what you are reading PM, I have plenty of notes all ready to go in PDF file. I do not like reading from the net so I print these off on paper.
Good luck with it all.

Sure either way you are fine.
I just think sooner then later you may just want to learn how to make that sound!
I know this may not be what you want to hear however after I got the basics down about synthesis I felt it got a little easier each time to create the sound I wanted.
This may also sound corny but i use the old favorite and it works wonders, Imagine the sound, picture it in your head. I draw diagrams they works wonders for me also.

Sylenth is a truly awesome soft synth maybe even one of the best on the market, enjoy and best of luck.

GS is not the best place to get an answer to this kind of thing. He want's presets!

I rely heavily on presets, mostly my own but not exclusively, I simply don't want to get into sound design for every part I want to create, it can totally de-rail the production.

My demos are very trancey but I believe in the right context a lot of the sounds can be used for anything, especially something as close as progressive house. You could check out my free bank in any case and/or listen to my audio demo

Aiynzahev Sylenth1 Trance Bank. Colours - 64 Presets. - YouTube

http://soundcloud.com/aiyn-zahev/sylenth1-presets?in=aiyn-zahev/sets/sylenth1-colours-soundbank

Or Bluffmunkey has a good few banks, wider genre than mine but I think could be used for prog house depending again on what exact kind. I've got them so could put some sound examples up. I'd say they are at least worth it for the pads.

You could check out Arksun A lot of people who don't make trance say good things about his banks.

You could try freshly squeezed:
Sylenth1 Presets | Sylenth1 Electro Essentials Volume 1 - YouTube

Hard to think of Sylenth1 progressive house banks really but there must be some. It's one of the focuses for my next Sylenth1 bank though.

this.

I can take a preset and mess with it till its a totally different sound (something that I want to use) but I dont think I could get that sound if I started with INIT.

Did you already have checked all 1300+ presets of Sylenth1?

If so you don't need any other soundsets (because they're mostly trance and just derivates of the factory presets).

maybe start layering your sounds more to get what you want. Maybe just a single preset/patch isnt enough?

Then just leave Sylenth1 alone and look for another synth (ANA for example)!

sylenth sounds great by itself,though bc of recent trend in "music" it is hard to get nice patches,as most of those available sound cheezy shitty guettisho swedisho house mafiosish But will check reviews about ana,i think i havent heard about this synth so gonna do it even just bc of curiosity
