What a power synth! And "0" CPU (ok. 2 - 4;o)
Bought it on sale a time ago, (many) factory presets - but not so my.
But now! W.A. has 10+ Presets Pack on sale. What a range of (2.000?) powerful sounds. And fantastic preset organisation.
Its just 3 OSC with Filter, Effects and ModMatrix. But the sound possibility is awsome.
I still love Synth1, but Babylon will replace him.
Again, wow. Thanks W.A.

Yeah, it seems to be better than you expect it to be but I still find it's sweet spots are a little too few and far between. I've used it in a couple of things but not for ages.

The preset bundle is a one-time purchase. After you purchase the preset bundle, the "download your purchases" link will be updated to include every new preset pack for the software when it is released. It's a sweet deal.

It's the same deal for W.A. Production's other preset bundles, too (i.e. Instachord; Imperfect; DMS Ascension).

I don't think I've used any of the presets. It's so easy to use and the preset naming is hardly inviting. I've got the best results from making my own from scratch.

True, the sheer number of presets in Babylon is a bit overwhelming; oftentimes it is easier to create a new patch rather than to audition a bunch of presets looking for a suitable one. I created a rock organ patch with Babylon that I quite like.

Regarding softsynth preset names in general, rarely are they helpful in finding the right patch, though I have come across softsynth preset names which I think sound like they would make great titles for songs.

It's not so much the number, it's the way they are named - SY SineAM 1, SY SineAM 2, SY SineAM 3, SY SineFM A 1, SY SineFM A 2, SY SineFM A 3, etc.

Its right, a basic saw, some tweaking and there is a sound.
But if you have hundreds of presets with different sounds to start from, its quick and easy.

You can quick and easy rename and sorted it with the windows browser. First i had "2.000" presets in 20 folder, now i have "only" the good sounded in my standard folders (bass, drums, lead, pluck, etc.). If you have a "supersaw lead" and think, a little more release is better, tweak and save - no "save as" or "will you overwrite". Easy like in Synth1.
