Where do I get synth sounds like these from?

Recommended Posts

Dear Anyone.


I'm a wannabe New Age composer lost in a sea of VSTs and too many presets!!  I'm trying to get pads like those in the YouTube examples below, I've got little budget (so don't mind approximations if they're of similar quality/style) - all the freebie 'pads' I've found so far sound like Star Wars special effects.  


Here's the links.  


Mike Rowland, Angel Delight.




Yellow Brick Cinema (the backing sound, not the piano!) 




Meditation and Healing Music (Again the backing sounds, not the flute!)




I know people are going to say 'well, any decent package has these presets....' and they probably DO. Thing IS - modern packages come with, like, a thousand presets, all of which are variable - and I'm not good enough with synths, despite trying many learning YouTube videos, to know how to get these kinda sounds coming out of them.  And I really want to learn how to do it! 


So any/all advice will be gratefully received and used!! 


Yours hopefully, with thanks,


Chris  Burke (extreme noooob, first class!)
