Vital Presets: The Best Free & Paid Packs in Any Genre (2022)

Vital Presets

Vital has been a game-changer synth since its arrival in 2020 – but finding presets can be tricky.

Unless you have a paid tiers, your choice of presets is limited. And even though we encourage people to design their own sounds, sometimes you just want some good presets to get you started.

In this post, I’ve scoured the web and gathered the best free and paid Vital preset packs for all the major genres of electronic music such as House, Dubstep, and Future Bass. Let’s go!

Want Vital presets that work out of the box?

We’ve teamed up with Black Octopus Sound for our FREE Vital Presets pack with 21 curated sounds – suitable for bass and electronic music.

One Last Thing…

Before I let you go, I will give a shout out to Preset Share, an amazing platform that makes it easy to browse and download individual presets. Just set your filter to Vital and choose your genre from the list:

Finally, don’t forget to explore sounds outside of your preferred genre! This is how you will incorporate originality into your music.

And with that, I hope you enjoyed this post!
