Jesse Stern's Top Five
Jesse is a producer, bassist, guitarist and singer and has been fortunate to work with many great artists including:
Hanson, Weezer, Mario Reyes (Gipsy Kings), Della Reese, Airto Moreira, Coolio, Jovino Santos Neto, Ricardo Lemvo & Makina Loca and Carlos Malta.
Swirly (Factory Sound Bank / Combinator / Pads)
One of my favorites and I like that it is simple without the mod wheel, but made complex with the mod.
TremRhodes (Factory Sound Bank / NN-XT Patches / Piano)
I use this for all of my electric keyboard sounds. A timeless classic sound.
House Kit 05 (Factory Sound Bank / Redrum Drum Kits / House Kits)
One of my main go-to kits. Usually with any Redrum patch, I often replace the kick with one of the XTC kicks (especially 1 and 5).
Crazy Omar (Factory Sound Bank / Subtractor / MonoSynths)
SubtleWarmer (Factory Sound Bank / Scream 4 Patches / Warm Saturation)
I often use this or the Cassette preset on drums or loops, with only mild EQ tweaking.
