Favourite Synth/VST with Sylphyo?

  • 🇬🇧: Hey Sylphyonists,
    I would like to have a weekly discussion with you guys about Sylphyo to know more about your experiences.

    As many of you know, Sylphyo can control most synthesizers 🎛️, what is your favourite synth/VST to control with your Sylphyo ?

    For me I love the Mutable Instruments Plaits modular, here is a video of me improvising on it with Sylphyo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twCcDXaVbYs

    See you next week 😀 !

    🇫🇷 : Salut les Sylphyonistes,
    Nous lançons de nouvelles discussions hebdomadaires à propos du Sylphyo afin d'en savoir plus sur vos expériences.

    Comme beaucoup d'entre vous le savent déja, Sylphyo peut contrôler la plupart des synthés 🎛️, quel est votre synthé/VST préféré à contrôler avec votre Sylphyo ?

    J'aime beaucoup le Plaits de Mutable Instruments, voici une petite impro avec le Sylphyo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twCcDXaVbYs

    À la semaine prochaine 😀 !


  • Measured by time playing, Logic's synths are what I play the most - particularly ES2, Sculpture, and EXS24.

    However, if I was picking one favorite for a brand new user starting from scratch, I'd probably pick Zeeon for iOS. I chose it because:

    • the UI is a joy to use. Exactly what it needs to have and nothing more.
    • the patches are really expressive and they all sound fantastic. I feel like some synths (like Synth One for iOS) are intended for more complex patches that don't lend themselves to being played. Those patches already have so much happening that the player's expression doesn't stand out.
    • it requires almost zero configuration. I usually just map expression/CC11 to filter cutoff, which takes 10 seconds (like this).
    • the default patches include a pretty wide range (and third-party patch banks). Probably the weakest category is bowed instruments.
    • it's $10 :-)

    Happy playing,
