Sylenth1 - LT Skin [UPDATED] by Pureav Sylenth1 - LT Skin [UPDATED] by Pureav
I'm pleased to present a new (and usable!) Sylenth 1 skin. I've taken some time to make the process of installing as simple as possible by compiling a single .res file which contains the PNG folder images from within Sylenth1.dll (no need to replace every image one at a time :)). If you don't already know what to do with a .res file, please read below. Instructions are also contained in the downloadable .zip.

Note: This file, as long as downloaded from directly, will not affect the functionallity of Sylenth 1. You are simply replacing .png images, no code is altered. Versions prior to are not supported.

UPDATE 1.02 Fixed a label mistake where "FILT A" was displaying "FILT B". You'll only have to replace bmp10001.png, not the entire thing.

UPDATE 1.01: I've now included a .res for newer versions of Sylenth that have 72 images and not 73. When following the instructions, please check how many you have. If you happen to have more than 73 (possibly 76), please use the 72 option. Some feedback has suggested that new builds may have a mysterious extra 4 files which although labeled as PNGs, are not actually images. You can leave them where they are.

Individual PNGs are now also included for manual replacement.

Prior to installing:


1 - Download attached and extract files
2 - Download and install Resource Hacker (simply a free tool that allows you to open .dll files, used by the world over.)
2.1 - It's been reported that Resource Hacker has issues with 64bit versions of Sylenth. Other legit and stable alternatives include Explorer Suite ( and PE Explorer…
3 - Backup Sylenth1.dll (in your VST directory)

Installation instructions:

1 - Open Resource Hacker
2 - File > Open > Sylenth1.dll
3 - When loaded, go to Action > Update all Resources
4 - Browse for either PNG_73.res or PNG_72.res
5 - Click Open. A dialog will confirm "73/72 resource items updated"
6 - File > Save > Sylenth1.dll (replace existing file in your VST directory)


Use the provided individual images and replace manually. I don't own a Mac, but I believe they can view/edit VST files without any 3rd party software.

Feel free to repost on other sites, but please link to this page and do not share the file itself. Cheers!

- Lance

Dude, Lennar Digital should use this as Sylenth1's default skin, I love it and I think this is the perfect skin for Sylenth1!

I fucked up somewhere, but I don't know where. I followed the steps and saved in my VST directory, but when I tried opening Sylenth, it failed to load.

you probly didnt  go to 'File>save" in the resouce hacker before closing resouce hacker and opening sylenth

super cool. Thanks a LOT for this!
Bengston Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2014  New member
When I go to the EQ, there's a text coming up. It's not the full text, but half of the text. It says: "Thanks f..." and when I click on the text: "Please close a... to complete..." Do you know how to fix this problem?
But I just LOVE the skin!!!!! Well done! :)
Pureav Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Hey man. If you used 72, start again with 73 instead - and likewise start again with 72 if you used 73. These problems arise because the number of resources is slightly different between them both (the 73 option should only be used for older builds of Sylenth) so it's loading incorrect images in a few places. Hope that helps!

Glad you got it up and running! Sorry for the confusion, though. I've edited the instructions so many times now. It's hard to cover every possible problem without making it too long and boring to read through. Cheers!

Earlier today I was thinking of just how much this reminded me of Serum, then I checked your other stuff. Congrats! 
My only gripe with this skin is the fact that there seems to be a problem with some of the preset navigation arrows, at least it's like that on my copy (ver Picture here: I hope it's not too much to ask of you to have a look at this, as the skin is perfect in all other ways. 
Pureav Featured By Owner Edited Oct 22, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Hey man, thanks for the download!

The description is pretty big so you may have missed it, but versions prior to aren't supported. So firstly, I suggest updating your old Sylenth. That said, I supply two versions - 72 and 73. For older builds, you need to use 73. The arrows and bank nums 1-4 are messed up because you've used 72 which has one less png, causing all the subsequent pngs to shift a place. So please use 73 and if that still doesn't work, update your plugin. Cheers.

Hi again.

That's strange, I must have used an old installer! 
Thanx for the heads-up though, and sorry for this brainfart.
Pureav Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Haha, no probs fella. Brainfarts clear your head for newer, fresher thoughts.

Teryox01 Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Well this is the most comfortable skin available for Sylenth1 and as a result I must admit that I can finally spend hours working with it. One personal point though, I wish the background color for the titles was different, like Red for part A and Blue part B. It reminds me of this dream synthesizer: The Solaris:… . Thanks for the work Lance, big Thanks, Cheers!
retro245 Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2014
Hi super design and amazing color combinations. Please could you create the same design as skin color and graphics for Fl Studio and then i should be Refx Nexus, Spire, all in the same design and it would be wrong even background or wallpaper. It would be great if it was as compact. Thanks
Wise1Won Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2014
What's the tape over the name under the Sylenth word? Gorgeous skin, but that tape spoils it.
Pureav Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
The tape is what the licensed name sits on top of. I put tape there because without it, the text overlaps my borders and looks sooo so wrong. I sadly couldn't relocate the text, so tape was the solution. =]
Wise1Won Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014
But something plain would be better. Tape makes it look damaged. Can't you just make black background there or something? It's a fantastic skin - I'd love to use it, but not with the tape there.
Pureav Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Sorry it's a deal breaker for you. :/ Tape to me gives it character. You're welcome to modify the main background image supplied. Install the skin as normal and then replace just that image individually. With so many downloads already, I won't be changing it at this point.

I can't please everybody, sadly. Some love the tape, some hate the purple, some have removed the green entirely.

If you have trouble with modifying it, I'll see about sending you an alternative via PM at some point.
Wise1Won Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2014
Okay, I fixed the main image using photoshop, but now it doesn't work. Any idea why? It shows your original version with the tape on it even after using resource hacker again. Does the PNG_72.res file not link to its folder if you change a PNG file in the folder? TIA.
Wise1Won Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2014
Just wanted to say I like your vibe Pureav. I will have a go at removing the tape. I'll try the stamper in photoshop or something similar. Thanks for the responses. ;)
RGC3 Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014
Not with the tape there? Sylenth1's highly inspiring default skin is always available, you know.
xefhs Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2014
I've been using it for 2 months, wonderful and elegant !
The only flaw is that's hard to distinguish part A from part B

Anyway, still the best skin for sylenth, hands down. Thank you
StormDraggy Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2014
This works amazingly. I love the pattern. Makes my FL skin go with it.

Pureav, Sorry for the questions, I think I have  it figured out Here is a link if you or anybody else would like to have another interesting skin for this amazing synth!

The top link is the preview

The bottom is the two files (PNG folder and PNG_72.res file) zipped…
jacobsapple Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2014  Professional Artist
Pureav, Stellar upload! Works like a charm:)

I have question for you though. I have a few skins that would be maybe worth creating a few res file for each one. What is the correct command to save the .res files and do I have to create the two files PNG_73.res and PNG_72.res? 
Also I cant get the program to multi select all the .png files at once??? I can get all the png file to expand in the view menu but there are folders allocated to each png file which is deny access to the (select all) function in the edit menu???
Anyways here is a link to some of the Sylenth schemes I am refering to.…

Pureav Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Hey man. Thanks!

No probs on the questions.

So first, the reason for 72 and 73 versions is because newer updates of Sylenth have 72 images instead of 73 (two images were merged into one). So to be compatible for as many users as possible, I included both.

To create .res files, I actually used an app called GoRC. You can google it. It's a free tool and does the trick. The website has a lot of instructions to guide you through the process. The only issue I had was that it creates the .res file in the language of my PC local time (UK English) but Sylenth requires US English for the resources. If you're in the US, you don't have to worry. If not, a quick google search on .res language codes will give some answers.

Hope that helps. I had to learn as I went as well, but all the answers are out there. Good luck and happy skinning! =]

Gorgeous work, and a real labour of love.

Have successfully updated my fully-licensed 64-bit PC version of - so it can be done!

To do this in Restorator 2007:

1. Make a back-up copy of the the Sylenth.dll.
2. Open the Sylenth.dll in Restorator.
3. Open the PNG folder in the left-hand explorer pane of Restorator, and see what the last number is.
4. From the skin download, change the name of either PNG_72.res or PNG_73.res (depending on what the number in 3. above was) to simply PNG.res
5. With windows explorer open side-by-side with Restorator, drag the renamed 'PNG.res' into the left-hand explorer pane of Restorator.
6.  Save and exit.

Note that Restorator creates additional back-up .dlls each time you do an amendment.  You'll need to do manual housekeeping on these, as it doesn't remove them when you close.

Pureav Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Thanks a lot for that Owen. It's good to hear people applying it to legit versions, that was the intention. =]

I appreciate the added walkthrough too. I think I'll have to rewrite my description, make it simpler/shorter.

Cheers man!
