Can Synthstrom hire sound designers to design more modern synth presets?

Or the problem in Deluge synth engine that does not allow to sound modern?

I have Digitakt, Digitone and Deluge. Deluge has some problems like it's general design, I think Elektron's latest boxes are better looking (ok ok it depends on each one's understanding of design...) but Deluge is better I think in its general use, it is more understandable..... but the synth presets (I'm not a sound designer, I'm into production and mixing) are very outdated....

Is it only what I think?

    Isn't there a 'modern' parameter on the new panels? Comes up 'soon' if you press it though.

    Does almost silence mean that everybody is ok with Deluge presets?

    I don't know if the problem is that they aren't "modern" enough, but I haven't found the synth presets that useful. It's easy enough to make my own patches, though. I'd hate to see Synthstrom invest in this over fixing other issues like the handling of parameter changes, especially when it's something that could relatively easily be done by users instead (even you!)

    In this part of the forum "Deluge Presets" are lots of free different and cool presets. Did you try them? Maybe they are more modern for your taste?

    There are some cool presets and kits around here, but the quality is mixed and there are a lot of broken download links.

    What would be cool is a central git repo of kits and synths that we could contribute to. I personally don't have the skills to design quality sounds, but I'd be happy to pull a git repo together if anyone wants to chuck me some files as a starting point. Obviously any samples should have an appropriate license.

    I like that we could have a central repo. BUT the license should be crystal clear. Otherwise the owner of the repo is maybe running in problems with other license owners.

    AND if you made the presets yourself, you should put a LICENSE file in there and I would suggest a creative commons "CC BY" license (Attribution 4.0 International)

    Hot tip: design your own sounds! It's part of getting what you want out of a piece gear.

    Also people have different tastes so it would be difficult to please everyone all of the time.

    Doing your own is the best way and you'll learn a lot in the process.

    we shall be the Deluge sound designers. 😀
    Synthstrom did a call for kit and multi presets here twice, loads of kit presets in the factory content are from users in this forum.
    guess they will do it again and hope they make it even votable so Ian has less trouble to decide.
    dont love the synth presets, especially with multi i agree there could be much more like orchestra, classic vintage synths, ..
    what i love is the fact 808 is the default drum kit. 808 love 💕 forever

    Then there should be a good overview as a repository or a maintained pinned post.

    The OP may not be around anymore, but I think it’s worth posting the link to these patches created by Ohdeo:

    http://ohdeo.com/2018/05/24/200-free-synthstrom-deluge-presets-patches/

    200 very nice sounds! I made a “best of” collection for my Deluge from patches posted here and around the internet. Many of the patches I chose to save came from Ohdeo’s collection.

    This site: https://delugist.neuma.studio/
    It's the ideal platform for sharing and cataloging presets. But I guess nobody has noticed it, because it's desperately in need of contributions!

    good call, @xap, forgot about that cool app
    @drbourbon, noticed the upload button reads "Upload preset/song". For what is upload song? Share presets with samples?

    I'm toying with adding a Deluge forum and Download area over at https://forums.godlike.com.au
    We are mainly Kurzweil focussed at the moment, but if there is interest in a download repository, I can chat with the other admin about it.
