Sylenth1 (often called Sylenth) has been a long-standing, go-to plugin for many producers including some of the biggest DJs from around the world.
It has been a major player in Electronic Dance Music (EDM) production for a long time and still is a great choice to this day.
Sylenth1 is a virtual instrument (synthesizer) that uses additive synthesis to generate sounds.
It is one of the most powerful synths on the market today and is very CPU efficient as well.
Here are some of its specs:
To use this soft-synth, you need the following specs on your computer at the bare minimum:
With its popularity, the question may have already been answered.
Yes, Sylenth1 is worth the money. But here's why:
The fact that it comes with a full deck of effects including distortion, phaser, chorus, equalizer, delay, reverb, and compression makes it really easy to design your sound and provides a ton of value.
Not to mention the bonus 7 skins that can inspire your creative direction if you are a visual person.
Yes, there is a payment plan for Sylenth on the official Lennard Digital website.
The payment plan is €9.95 Euro (~$11.16 USD) per month and is the rent-to-own payment format.
This means you get to keep the plugin forever after you have paid off the license cost (which takes 14 months).
Sylenth is a great purchase and was actually the first third-party plugin I bought - the second plugin, if you include Harmor that I got along with FL Studio Signature Edition.
With it being a staple in my music production toolbox, I definitely recommend the synthesizer.
