Image Line’s Sytrus is a pretty cool vst. After purchasing Fl Studio many years ago I was very curious on how some of the built in synths and plug ins would sound. So I started digging through them, come to find out I got Sytrus free in FL Studio. I though that it actually came with the software normally but it didn’t. I purchased some sort of a bundle from FL Studio and didn’t even know that I did it and got a few vst plug ins with the program itself. I am not sure if you can use Sytrus as a stand alone but I don’t think so and im not even sure if it can be used in any other software besides Fl Studio.
It can start to cause some problems if your ram and cpu arent up to par. I have used it a few times a several different machines and some of them just cant handle the plug in, it will start to lag and cause problems with Asio sound drivers. Also, im not sure how long the program actually takes to load because it loaded with fl studio and not separate so I only know the load time of the whole fl studio . But when loading sytrus into a channel its pretty quick and instant no matter what machine you are on.
Sytrus is worth the buy if you are looking for some good sounds, Sytrus comes with a lot of presets which is why I like it a lot. But once it gets into editing those sounds I run away. I can only edit sounds in certain vst set ups. Sytrus’s set up was pretty different and the layout was confusing.
Overall, not a bad vst. I think it would be better for me if it could be used in many other programs or as a stand alone.
Sytrus from image Line is a pretty cool synth. There is a lot of things that you can do with Sytrus if you understand how to use it properly which could take some time depending on your general knowledge with vst’s. I purchase an xxl bundle of fl studio back and sytrus came with it. Otherwise I probably never would have heard of it.
Setting it up was automatic, since it came with Fl Studio XXL and it never crashes or causes any problems with any other vst’s or programs. I am not sure if you can use this vst in any other sequencer besides FL Studio since its made by image line. I have never tried it but one day I might
The sounds are pretty good, some of them take up a lot of your CPU even if you are using asio 4 all I was having several problems when I was running several sounds on different channels at the same time. Editing sounds can be a hassle though if you don’t know what you are doing, it took me some time to really get to understand that part.
Overall, If it comes with your FL Studio then learn to use it an understand how it works. It will really give you some good synths that you can use. If it doesn’t come with your version of fl studio and you are thinking about getting it. Check out some of the other synths by Image Line. This one comes with a high price tag (well higher than I expected ) so im glad I didn’t have to pay for it and it came with fl studio. There are enough sounds to last you a while though I just think Image Line makes better synths and offers them at a cheaper than they offer sytrus.
With image lines sytrus it was a very easy installation, basically since it comes with any set up of fl studio when you have installed fl studio it will be in the vst folder for you to start using. It is a great plug in and very easy to work with once you know what you are doing, which is the case for most vsts in my opinion.
There was no compatibility issues at all with this vst as it should be since it came with fl studio which works fine on my computer.
There was no manual with this vst but it is very easy to start using straight away.
With sytrus the performance is great, so great in fact that I think I could manage to run about more than 100 of these at one time without any lag or crackling noises at all.
It works fine with my configuration of 4gb ram and 1.8GHz processing power.
I have been using this vst for a long time now, probably the same amount of time that I have been using fl studio which is about just over a year I think. It has some great features on this vst.
Overall with sytrus I think it is a great vst for free, basically free anyway.
Since it comes with fl studio I can not complain at all which its vast amount of great presets that you can tweak with a number of different filters and lfos make this a great vst.
Since it comes with fl studio I can not comment on value for price but I would not pay for this vst if it did not come with fl studio if that helps any one out. What I mean is that I would not buy a standalone version of this vst since I do not think it is good enough to buy on its own but since it is packaged with fl studio I can not complain at all.
I have a large range of vsts and this sytrus' preset library definitely shines out from the rest for presets but I am not a huge fan of using presets so in that aspect it does not get used as much as I think it should.
I do not use it as much any more but I am still glad to have it in my arsenal of production weapons.
