INSTRUMENTS / GENERATORS
DEMO ONLY: Sytrus loads as a demo in most FL Studio versions so may need to be purchased separately allowing you to load projects saved containing demo Sytrus channels.
Sytrus is a powerful and versatile synthesizer featuring six customizable operators for FM (Frequency Modulation) and RM (Ring Modulation) synthesis, plucked string synthesis, 3 filter modules, an effects module with chorus, three delay lines and unique programmable unison mode.
The rich implementation characteristics of Sytrus allow for an extremely wide range of sounds, including bass lines, bells, pads, drums, pianos, strings, organs and even entire drum and synth loops (in a single patch/note), made possible by the completely customizable envelopes supported by each module.
Along with this flexibility comes complexity. However, if you stick with Sytrus and study this help file (there's a easy step-by-step tutorial here), we are sure you will find Sytrus to be one of the most rewarding plugins in the Image-Line library.
Want more sounds? - There are a large number of user created Sytrus patches available on-line in the dedicated Sytrus Presets & Tips Forum.
A video tutorial for Sytrus is also available on the FL Studio website.
