Greetings From BC, Canada.

Postby Cherubrock90 » Thu Jun 13, 2019 5:32 am

Hey Everyone,

I'm thrilled that this community exists as I am very close to fully leaving windows behind for good...

I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of some linux VSTs that contain a lot of synthy electric keyboard presets? I'm used to falling back on ableton's extensive library but am moving away from ableton now.

Welcome! Amsynth and ZynaddsubFX ship with a good library of presets, if you are interested :D

Welcome to the forum!

I would also suggest poking around on LMMS, which has a number of synths with decent presets.

LMMS is indeed great 'all in one' solution, easy to start.
If you are working with some other DAW, and just want synths with plenty of presets, ZynAddSubFX and Surge are free alternatives, and U-He has great non-free (some of them with zero cost) linux synths.

You can also try to use your favorite Windows VST's in Linux w/ LinVST or Carla. Otherwise like @Basslint said: Synaddsubfx and AmSynth. The interface of those is awful because they're so old. But there is a reason that they "survived" for so long.

Oh, and good 'ol Dexed (Yamaha DX7 emulator).

Yeah, in number of presets dexed with presets from net is unbeatable. https://www.flstudiomusic.com/2015/08/d ... esets.html

Totally another thing is that how many of those 3000 presets sound same :-)

Look into the "Mabuhay from the Philippines" thread in this section where I list all free u-he (Linux native) synths.

For instance this piece was made using those free synths (+ drums) :

Cheers.
