Compared to the current generation of deep, complex virtual instruments, LennarDigital’s Sylenth1 is a relatively basic soft synth.

Its simple subtractive architecture is based on four oscillators, two filters, two LFOs, two modulation envelopes and a handful of built-in effects. However, despite the synth’s modest set of features, it’s maintained its position as one of the most popular plugins on the market since its release in 2006, and remains the go-to virtual analogue instrument for many top producers.

In this walkthrough, we’ll show you how to turn Sylenth1’s power-packed oscillators and unison mode to the generating of massive stacked chords. Read more about How to create stacked chords in Sylenth1 at
