    I'm just looking for basic but good preset synthe sounds not unlike the Killers used on their debut LP "Hot Fuss". I tried absynthe but wasn't feeling the presets and don't know enough to tweak them to sound how I'd like, besides they didn't have much in the way of steady saw/lead type stuff. And Omnisphere is too massive for what I want.

    I've tried a number of freeware ones, as well, but I'm just looking for decent Saws, Pads, Synthe Leads, just good sounding stuff.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hey I feel like this one just slipped through the cracks so I wanted to check again and see if anyone had anything they've been using and liked for what I'm going for, thanks guys.

    Not a VSTi person, no idea. But this gives you proof your thread is visible to somebody.

    You could try at
    [DLMURL="link removed[/DLMURL], who have a pretty big database of VST and VSTi's. That doens't help you, but it gives you a list of them to try.

    Obviously, leave the instrument box checked, uncheck the "All" box below there and pick your VSTi type. Then you can pick your platform further down the page.
