Vital is my favorite Free VST of all time. It's a Masterpiece. Vital definitely holds its own when compared to paid Synths such as Opal, Phase Plant, Pigments, and Serum. My top 2 at the moment are Pigments + Vital.
For those of you who are new to it, Vital is a spectral warping wavetable Synthesizer. You can create virtually any sound you desire: from Virtual Analog and hybrid organic sounds, to as much chaos as your ears can handle!!
Vital VST was developed by Matt Tytel. He decided to release it for free, and offer paid "upgrades" that come with extra Presets + Wavetables. There is a massive (pun-intended 😆) Community around Vital that includes Sound Designers, Custom Skin makers, and Music Producers. Shout out to the Vital Forum!!
You can tell that Vital is inspired by classic Wavetable Synths like Serum, but takes things even further with a vast amount of sound-shaping capabilities. Vital's FX section is also feature packed.
I have put together a list of Free Vital Preset banks. There are over 4,000 Free Presets on this List. It will be updated periodically as I find more Free Presets. If you are a sound designer and would like me to add your Free Vital bank to the list, please use the Contact Form.
🚨 GIVEAWAY ALERT!!! As a Free Bonus, I'm giving away my latest paid Vital Bank, "Vitality Vol. 8" ($20 value). It comes with 60 Presets + 3 Custom Skins. See below! 🚨
FREE VITAL PRESET BANKS
😎🌊 Free Cool WAV Vital Presets: Every odd # Bank (1, 3, 5, 7) of my "Vitality" Preset series is free.
My sound design style leans towards Hip-Hop, Pop, R&B, and Lo-fi. I absolutely love the sound of Analog Synthesizers, and try to emulate their character in my Presets. I also enjoy making hybrid Presets by layering live instrument samples with Wavetable Synthesis.
