Would like some VSTs to play with similar sounds (song reference)

Post by Adventureathlete » Sun Jan 24, 2021 12:16 pm

Hello,
I am using Mixcraft, and would like to have some VSTs that create similar sounds to the synths/keys/drums/bass/strings etc. on these few songs that I will provide a link for below, anything that sticks out to you that you can recommend would be great. As cheap as possible, some free maybe, but I can pay a small amount, I'm just saving up for adventurous athletic pursuits and ecological conservation so as I say, as cheap as possible, thank you.

These three recordings probably employ dozens of VSTs. It's a pretty big ask.

That's why I requested if anything sticks out, these are dedicated musicians/producers and they are far more committed to music production, I'm just looking for something to be creative with, which is why if there's anything that anyone hears and can recommend a VST that creates a similar sound or one that has a preset that sounds similar to one of these, that would be great. If you cannot identify and suggest any, then maybe at least you've been introduced to some new music to listen to.

Have you tried the included instruments in Mixcraft?

You probably could come close to a lot of the sounds with them.

Some of the more expensive or popular ones are Sylenth, UVI Falcon, Omnisphere, Sound Spire, ETC.

Here is some pages that have some free Virtual Instruments to check out.

Thanks I will check them out, and yeah I've tried messing with some pads and synths/keys to get some more ambient and distorted sounds, however they lack certain characteristics that I am looking for, I am going to study them more to see what it is to make it easier to discover new VSTs. Thanks for your reccomendations.

Get a copy of Computer Music and you'll get the Computer Music Plugin Suite with nearly 100 instruments, effects and utilities. Some great stuff in there. A good place to start I reckon.
