Review: Devilbytes Epic Dreampads Vol 1 for SynthMaster 2.6


Hey what’s good fam?

Today I’m checking out a collection of presets for SynthMaster

I’ve had this one in the collection for a while and I’m finally getting a chance to reveiw it.

If you dig pads and atmospheres then check this out.

Let’s dig in!

What is Epic Dreampads Vol 1?

epic_dreampadsIt’s a collection of 50 pad/ambient preset sounds for SynthMaster 2.6

If you use that synth then you know it’s a very powerful plugin, so it’s always cool to see new content for it, even though it comes with a TON!

I like the way each developer approaches the synth engine and the various libraries show how versatile of a synth it really is.

This one focuses on the softer, more ambient side of things, so you know I was interested.

Quick Specs

So how does it sound?

Reel to Reel Tape RecorderThis collection has a nice sound, of course it’s light and ambient but I also found a few of the patches with a bit of “edge” to them.

It still stays in the realm of pads, but some of them can be a bit more aggressive.

There’s also plenty of tweaking to be had with the macros that were setup, so you can quickly alter the character of the patches.

The mod-wheel seems to control vibrato on most of the patches, but if you see mod-wheel on any of the parameters in the macro settings then most likely the modwheel will do something other than vibrato.

Overall it has a nice sound with plenty of variety for those that are into pads and ambient textures.

So what’s the bottom line?

It’s always cool to get new sounds, especially when they are made for something you already own as you can increase your library without having to purchase a new engine.

4subsThe sounds in Dreampads Vol 1 definitely fit the description and I give it 4 out of 5 subs. It’s a straight forward collection of pad and atmospheric textures that sound great while also providing quick access to tweak as needed.

I’m also a fan of smaller/independent developers so I dig checking out products like this.
