32 bit plugs in Logic Pro X solution
      #1059552 - 28/07/13 08:00 AM
A few of the guys at tthe Gearslutz forums seem excited about this. Check it out if it's relevant to you.

Lennardigital could heal a lot of pain if they'd get their arses into gear!

Hope it's useful.

Thanks Bazza.

However, I'll be using Logic 9 until GForce and Waldorf make their AU's 64 bit.

Sylenth 64 bit for Mac, hopefully out by the end of the year according to Lennard's website.

I've never really understood the fuss about Sylenth - imo it's a rather ugly, fairly ordinary sounding me-too VA synth and for me at least I've found other instruments significantly more inspiring.

The main thing Sylenth seems to have going for it is that there are a million trance and electronic soundsets for it, so there are lots of patches available and it seems like it's the standard tool that the three big-name artists use, and so all the me-too electronic artists have to use the same thing otherwise their music won't be taken seriously.

genuine curiosity - who are the three big name artists you refer to? (I'm clueless with dance /trance music and am intrigued by whom you refer to?)

Well, I was being facetious - but in the electronic dance community (as least the ones I see online in forums such as the Ableton forum, KVR, and many others) if BIGNAME_PRODUCA_X uses Massive and Sylenth, then those are what you have to use too because you need to exact same sounds, same sonic signature and same presets if possible - and this is why some of those plugins have some traction - it's less down to what they can do and how good other stuff can be, it's more about quick fix shortcuts.

Seriously, as an example, very few people were really using FM8 for electronic dance genres until they found out Skrillex uses it for most of his synth lines - and as he was trendy, so did using that plugin become for the same things.

It's just fashion I guess, nothing new as such, but for me it particularly applies to Sylenth, where I found it rather bland and average sounding compared to some other instruments out there, but it seems it's "the" trance synth (with the ES2 in Logic being used a lot as well) and there are a million patch banks out there for it, probably more than any other third-party synth...

I can't tell you any big name trance producers, I don't like Lennardigital's general lack of communication with his customers and I sincerely doubt the upgrade will be free, but this is a superb and incredibly popular synth.

I'll probably jump to Logic Pro X shortly.

Thanks Desmond - get your point.

And thanks Richie - will check them up. I know I'm off topic, but I'm always curious to listen to emerging and cutting edge tracks in electronica /dance (even though I'm old school electronic). I'm forever Shazam'ing and buying tracks on my iPhone - but at this stage there's about a hundred tracks virtually all of which I never listened to as intended (to analyze) and it feels like I've filled my phone and iPod up with unknown crap. Damn Football Focus (and the many seemingly well produced popular tracks they use as background music - they're costing me a small fortune :-) ).

Despite all the purchases, its hard to keep up and hard to differentiate the good from the bad when its not your own genre (but there is a lot of innovative music being created, even if there is more bland 'noise' too).

I don't write trance, dance, hip hop or dub step and I love the Sylenth - think it sounds great!
There is a plethora of sound sets out for it too, but that's hardly a weakness is it?
I never liked the DX7 or the M1 back in the day, but they sold by the bucket load too.
It's just horses for courses I suppose. Some synths just have a character of sound that I like and some don't.
I'm sure the same applies to you with the Sylenth.
