I need help creating sounds.

Okay so I am seriously tired of using presets and I wanna start creating my own sounds. (Mostly arps,leads and pads.) The vst's that I mostly use are Slyenth 85% of the time and stuff from komplete 8 and i also have omnisphere. Thes plugins have a **** load of presets but i wanna make my own sounds so... i was wondering of there were any good tutorials. I checked alot on youtube and also if u know a vst that has more creation options please say so.

Thanks alot guys

Zebra 2 is best for designing your own sounds. Its gonna take some time to learn it but the quality of the sound and the satisfaction of making your own sounds is worth it.

Why? I would argue that there is no best synth to make sounds on personally and to learn how to make sounds on the stuff he has. Massive and Sylenth are great tools for making sounds on. Sylenth is a power house and could very easily be your everything synth for making sounds.

I know Diva is like Zebra. And some patches on Diva (especially those with long reverb tails or pad sounds) will overload my CPU. 8 core mac pro.

Pretty crazy.

I just had four instances of Zebra open and didn't even break 300 mb of memory. I won't say it wont take a lot if your demanding a lot. But for general sound design that shouldn't be an issue, seeing that its capable of so much with just one osc. Diva.. I know shes a beast I'm waiting until I upgrade for her

I have to admit I only bought Sylenth to do tutorials for it once I learned it on YouTube. Then I realized that A) there are already 10,000 of them already out there and B) Sylenth is amazing for a VA synth and it is slowly becoming my most things synth. I bought Diva the same say with the intention of it being my everything synth and I use Sylenth so much more.

Forget buying new synths. Read these tutorials here and you will have the knowledge to create any sound imaginable. Especially the Sound On Sound magazines "Synth Secrets" series.

yeah u have to have a really nice PC to run Diva. I agree with the guy who said you don't need a new synth to make sounds on the techniques haven't changed much since the 80s
