Sylenth1 is a polyphonic virtual analog synthesizer.
It has four unison oscillators which use an "innovate" synthesis technique that allows the generation of many simultaneous high-quality waveforms in realtime, using only minimal amounts of CPU resources. It also features two "analog sounding" filter sections, which can be taken way past the point of self-oscillation. These filters incorporate several non-linear saturation stages to produce harmonically rich sounds. Sylenth1's extensive modulation options offer possibilities to sculpture the sound, and it has a set of six built-in mastering sound-effects.
- 4 band-limited unison oscillators in full stereo, each of which can generate 8 voices per note. This allows a total of 32 simultaneous voices for every note played, producing rich and complex sounds.
- 2 "analog-sounding" 4-stage stereo filters per note. Each filter contains 5 independent non-linear saturation functions. The filters support selectable low-pass, band-pass and high-pass modes with 12dB or 24dB attenuation.
- 16 Notes of polyphony, which adds up to a total of 512 simultaneous oscillator voices and 32 filters in realtime.
- 4 ADSR envelope generators per note, which allow sharp attack and release.
- 2 Low Frequency Oscillators with 11 different waveforms each.
- 16 Modulation slots with 24 different selectable modulation parameters each.
- Easy to use built-in master effects section consisting of an arpeggiator and 7 sound effects: distortion, phaser, chorus, equalizer, delay, reverb and compression.
- Arpeggiator with built-in step sequencer, 10 different melodic modes, adjustable pitch, velocity and hold settings. Outputs Step Velocity as a modulation source.
- 4-Stage stereo chorus, with 2x oversampling, adjustable delay time, depth, rate and feedback for flanging effects.
- Five different types of distortion in full stereo, with 4x oversampling to minimize aliasing artifacts.
- Equalizer with bass and treble adjustment by frequency and amplification.
- 6-Stage stereo phaser, with 2x oversampling, an embedded LFO, feedback and frequency spread adjustment.
- Delay module with low- and high-pass filters, unique echo smearing function, ping-pong mode with stereo spreading, independent left and right delay time and adjustable stereo width.
- Smooth reverb with adjustable pre-delay, damp, size and stereo width.
- Stereo compressor with attack, release, threshold and ratio settings.
- Heavily optimized code using high-performance SSE processor instructions.
- Easy to use user-interface.
- Fully controllable by MIDI. Knobs can be simply assigned to MIDI CCs using the MIDI learn function.
- Sync mode for syncing LFO and delay parameters to host tempo.
- 2 Modes of portamento sliding, which will slide both velocity and pitch parameters in polyphonic or monophonic mode.

Just touch 3.053, more solid than ever, Nitro skin send you to another dimension...literally :).
It's good to have more skins like Nitro, there is some really nice floating around, if some of them could be implemented will be dope.Read more

Great sound. Although its beena while since its updated, the sounds are still very useable in today's context:).Read more

I keep seeing reviews about this synth being outdated compared to newer synths. So far, imo the presets o here are better than most vst's i have used.Read more

best and most easy to use VST synthesiser, with this many/wide sound options. i make Basedrums, Hoover, ARP's Atmospheres/pads for 10 years now with sylenth, no sound was to hard for sylenth, always working even with a pentium 3 processor with 512 MB RAM.Read more

It doesn't get any easier than this... If you don't have Sylenth1 in your collection, you're not a producer. Coming from hardware, Lennar Digital was the first to make me realise what we could do inside a PC. Even back then when cores were low, this thing would make our speakers sing. I never liked it's look but it's look is perfect, everything's where it needs to be. If you don't understand synthesis, a few hours with Syleth1 and all will be revealed.Read more
