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.

Michael teaches Sound Design at the University of Virginia. In 2001, he toured with John Cage’s "An Alphabet".
