Free Universal Presets Manager For Windows, Zen

Big Tick Audio Software has introduced Zen, a free universal presets manager for Windows VSTis.

Zen loads in any host as a vsti, and acts as a loader for other vstis. So with Zen, you can search for “Rhodes piano” and get a list of all matching presets – regardless of the final vsti (Rhino, Zebra, Absynth…). When you select one of the presets in Zen, the corresponding vsti is automatically loaded to play the requested preset.

Many popular vstis are supported, including:

  • U-he ACE
  • Native Instrument’s Absynth 5
  • Rob Papen Albino 3
  • Anti’s Augur
  • FullBucket Blooo
  • Green Oak Crystal
  • DiscoDSP Discovery, Discovery Pro, Phantom and Vertigo
  • NuSofting daHornet
  • TAL Elek7ro
  • Wusik EVE
  • Tone12 Firebird
  • Smart Electronic Foorius
  • Tone12 Gladiator
  • Boris K. Intro
  • Progress Audio Kinisis
  • ConcreteFX Kubik
  • SarVST LoganA
  • FullBucket Mono/Fury
  • TAL NoizeMaker
  • FuzzPilz Oatmeal
  • LinPlug Octopus
  • Schwa Olga
  • SonicProjects OPX-Pro
  • Our own Rhino and RhinoCM
  • Humanoid Sound System ScannedSynth
  • Buchty SQ8L
  • LennardDigital Sylenth1
  • Ichiro Toda’s Synth1
  • Image-Line Sytrus
  • Cakewalk Triangle II
  • FabFilter Twin II
  • Vaz+
  • U-he Zebra
  • Cakewalk Z3ta+

Eventually Zen aims to categorize all available presets, for all vstis.

Zen synchronizes its own local database of presets with a master online database hosted at – users get new presets daily, delivered right into their sequencer, already categorized.

Commercial presets designers can use Zen to send demo version of their presets to all potential customers.

Users can preview the presets in Zen, directly in the context of their track, and buy the presets they like with just one click. Presets can be bought individually, as opposed to purchasing a full bank of presets.

  1. I was thinking the same about Spectrosonics – but give it time … the database should grow in time I assume. It's got the potential to be an excellent plugin – hope it gets the support required to make it truly worth while
