I've decided to add a downloads section where you can download VST patches for Serum, Sylenth1, and Massive. All of the patches are ones that I've either created for the sake of you guys to use, or they are the ones I use in my own songs. In other words, I made some cool shit and I'm sharing it with you. For free. Because that's how things are done in the V-nation. The only thing I request in return is to leave a comment and let me know which one(s) you downloaded. That gives me a better idea as to what you guys like, and helps me make better patches.
Right now, there are only 4, but as I get time, I'll be adding more, so check back often to see what I've got.
