Rob Lee EDM Expansion 1 for SynthMaster review


Hey what’s up fam?

Today I’m checking out a preset expansion for the SynthMaster plugin, this one is made by Rob Lee

He’s done presets for tons of plugins, both factory and expansions and he’s done quite a few for SynthMaster

This one is EDM expansion volume 1, let’s check it out

So what is the EDM vol 1 expansion?

synthmastersmallgrayIt’s exactly what it sounds like.

Rob is known for his EDM styled sounds and presets so this pack adds more of that flavor to your SynthMaster collection.

By the way, if you haven’t checked out the SynthMaster plugin you probably should, it has a really nice sound engine, definitely gives me a vibe similar to my Virus or other hardware synths.

Rob knows this plugin inside and out, so you know he will exploit and pull some of the best sounds out of the engine

Quick Specs

How does it sound?

Reel to Reel Tape RecorderRob knows how to deliver exciting electronic presets for sure, and this expansion is no exception.

It starts of with some nice rich arps, then moves into deep bass and some pretty cool EDM/House style chords.

There’s also plenty of dynamic synth leads and smooth pads included.

Overall the expansion has a really good sound, lots of dynamics and he implemented use of the easy controls for quick tweaking.

My favorite sounds are probably the leads, pads, and a few of the chord presets…really cool stuff.

So what’s the bottom line?

If you use SynthMaster, get this expansion…I would say just grab all the expansion Rob has done for the SM plugin.

He also did a bunch of the factory sounds so you know he’s very familiar with the platform.

4andhalfsubsI give this first volume of EDM presets 4.5 out of 5 subs, lots of content, and plenty of material to inspire new creations.

Go on over to the site and checkout the demos for his presets:

Also, make sure you checkout his main site where he has presets for all types of plugins, dude is a monster:

He’s also got some stuff for up to 50% off right now 🙂
