For the last few years I’ve collected quite nice presets database for Novation V-Station synth. Today, during the F1 Malaysia GP ;), an idea of sharing those presets came to my mind. So here it is – Novation V-Station Presets MegaPack Vol.1. This presets pack contains 893 presets for … yeah … Novation V-Station. It’s some kind of the tribute to the authors of those presets – some of the banks are not available anymore, some are forgotten. But, Of course, there are some new presets too. Readme files are attached to the most soundbanks so all credit goes to the authors 🙂
It wasn’t the simple copy / paste job. I needed to check which presets are free, which are commercial, I converted some of the presets saved in Fruity Loops Wrapper format (fst files) into standard V-Station mid files. To be honest, it took half day to clean whole mess 😉 Some presets are in fxp / fxb format (you can load them to V-Station via DAW) while others are in mid format (use “import” button from V-Station “global” screen).
This is the first part with pretty classic soundbanks covering wide range of sounds. There are leads, pads, arps, basses, fx. There are dedicated banks too – for example there is bank dedicated to trance genre and hands-up.
This isn’t over – there will be next part for sure.
Ahh, almost forgot. I didn’t select the presets – it’s your job :). Navigating through 1000 patches that don’t fit your style, your genre can be boring so it’s better to choose ie. 200 presets you like and create your own “best” soundbank. I know, it takes time but at the end you’ll hugely benefit from it.
