How to Create Psy Trance Dark Full On Goa Bass with Sylenth1
Psy trance is a genre of electronic music that combines psychedelic elements with high-energy rhythms and melodies. One of the most distinctive features of psy trance is the bassline, which often consists of a complex pattern of notes that modulate in pitch and timbre. The bassline is usually played by a synthesizer, such as Sylenth1, which is a popular plugin for producing psy trance sounds.
In this article, we will show you how to create a psy trance dark full on goa bass preset with Sylenth1, using some of the features and parameters of this powerful synth. We will also provide you with a free soundbank that contains 27 presets for Sylenth1, including leads, synths, FX, and basses. You can download the soundbank from the link below:

The first step is to initialize Sylenth1 to its default state. To do this, click on the Menu button on the top right corner of the plugin window and select Init Preset. This will reset all the settings and parameters of Sylenth1 to their default values.
Step 2: Choose a Waveform
The next step is to choose a waveform for the oscillator that will generate the bass sound. Sylenth1 has four oscillators, each with eight different waveforms to choose from. For this tutorial, we will use only one oscillator, Osc A1, and we will select the Saw wave as our waveform. To do this, click on the Wave button on the Osc A1 section and select Saw from the drop-down menu.
Step 3: Adjust the Pitch
The next step is to adjust the pitch of the oscillator to create some movement and variation in the bass sound. To do this, we will use the Pitch A knob on the Osc A1 section and set it to -0.50 semitones. This will slightly detune the oscillator from its original pitch.
Step 4: Apply Filter and Envelope
The next step is to apply a filter and an envelope to shape the sound of the oscillator. Sylenth1 has two filters, Filter A and Filter B, each with four different types to choose from. For this tutorial, we will use Filter A and select Lowpass as our filter type. To do this, click on the Filter Type button on the Filter A section and select Lowpass from the drop-down menu.
Then, we will adjust some of the parameters of the filter to control its cutoff frequency and resonance. To do this, we will use the Cutoff A knob and set it to 3.00 kHz, and use the Reso A knob and set it to 3.00 dB. This will create a low-pass filter that will cut off some of the high frequencies of the sound and add some resonance to emphasize its character.
Next, we will use an envelope to modulate the cutoff frequency of the filter over time. Sylenth1 has four envelopes, Env A, Env B, Env C, and Env D, each with four parameters: Attack, Decay, Sustain, and Release. For this tutorial, we will use Env A and link it to Filter A by using the Modulation Matrix. To do this, click on an empty slot on the Modulation Matrix section and select Source as Env A and Destination as Cutoff A from the drop-down menus.
Then, we will adjust some of the parameters of Env A to create a plucky envelope that will make the sound more dynamic and rhythmic. To do this, we will use
the Attack knob and set it to 0 ms, use
the Decay knob and set it to 300 ms,
the Sustain knob and set it to 0%, and use
the Release knob and set it to 0 ms.
This will create an envelope that will quickly open and close the filter cutoff frequency every time a note is played.
Step 5: Apply Distortion and EQ
