High Quality Ableton Presets

I would only buy Ableton presets (for operator or other instruments)if they met the following criteria:
-Must be made using Ableton instruments (NOT samples - I learn best through reverse engineering)
-Not wonky or overly elaborate
-Uses effects to achieve quality sound, not to show off Ableton effects
-Flexible sounds - can be applied to most or all EDM genres
-Low cost (I wouldn't pay over $0.50 per preset)
-Professional - Clean, organized (macros help), yet complex (Most really good ableton synths require racks within racks within racks....)
-Adjustable - Easily tweaked using macros and/or effects to make new sounds

I have yet to find any packs that meet these standards. I have a growing collection of instrument racks myself(using operator + effects), but I always like having new sounds in my library to experiment with. Anyone know of any quality packs? What would it take for you to buy presets?

so you want quality sounds for ****ty synths that are usable for all genres and only cost 50cent per preset?

i would try Aldi..also a good source for quality laptops and sunglases.

what would it take for me to buy presets? when they would be mosquito repellent maybe?

Wait, so you're looking to pay me $0.50 for a preset that, by your definition, would take me a few hours to set up?

Mass production/marketing would get you the price, not the quality.
It would need a market willing to pay a little more for quality.

Id rather make friends :(
This reminds me a bit that there was a time when gear was traded/lent a lot more.
You learnt whatever you could from the owner when you needed it a bit or he got bored of it, could even discover what he didnt.
It was a consequence of actually needing more gear to finish things, needing help, and helping each other.

Its a lot less of a community for many people now since they can get it all in a PC, I kinda hope they all find the need for more friendly communities again.
Forums have potential for more than flaming.

So my tip is **** products that are pseudoteachers/friends if youre cheap anyway, get to know people who know their softsynths, trade patches, dont be a ****, learn what you can.
Ask nicely, put away your ego, your entitlements, be honest.

Honestly, I don't see the point of getting more VSTs than I already have. Most digital synths are essentially the same. I use operator for 95% of my synths. Everyone has their preferences, but I think you could replicate almost any digital synth using operator + effects.
