Big Tick has announced the release of Zen, a free universal VST instruments presets manager.
It 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… whatever). When you select one of the presets in Zen, the corresponding vsti is automatically loaded to play the requested preset.
Most popular vstis are supported, and new ones are added daily. Eventually Zen aims to categorize all available presets, for all vstis.
Zen constantly synchronizes his own local database of presets with a master online database hosted at www.bigtickaudio.com – 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.
Zen is available as a free download for Windows PC.
