Although Sylenth1 is without any doubt a great synth, many producers simply don’t want to see the same old GUI over and over again. Fortunately, there are plenty of Sylenth1 skins – made by third party designers – available and most of them are even free. You’ll find all of my favorite ones below. Just scroll down until you find something that fits your taste.

Free Sylenth1 Skins
Sylenth1 V3 by Lance Thackeray
This one was made by Lance Thackeray, who’s also known for designing the default Serum skin. If you own a legit copy of Sylenth you don’t have to download it anymore, since the guys from Lennar Digital decided to include it with the latest update.
Sylenth 3 by Drstelth
The next one is also based on the “Sylenth1 V3” skin by Lance Thackeray, but a user named Drstelth switched up the colors and published his modified version via VSTskins.
BlackPearl by Lennar Digital
Another dark theme, with blue lights and modern looking buttons.
PurpleKush by Elancha
Based on the previous “BlackPearl” skin, but the colors have been changed to purple.
Elara by satYatunes
Elara is a retro futuristic sci-fi theme by satYatunes. It kinda reminds of old arcade games.
Black Skin by KraftWerk7
Made by a DeviantArt user called KraftWerk7. He also made some of the following designs.
Gray Skin by KraftWerk7
Flat, vintage looks combined with orange and green color accents.
White Skin by KraftWerk7
Sylenth1 X3 White Skin is clearly inspired by Native Instruments new Massive X synth.
TI mod2 by Drstelth
If you’re a fan of the Virus synth by Access you might like this GUI by Drstelth.
White Cream 2 Saturate
Another white one, also made by Drstelth.
Michael E Sylenth Skin
Although Michael E posted this one about 8 years ago I still think that it looks really decent.
Unfortunately I couldn’t find any information about the creator of this skin, but I wanted to include it anyway. With the frostish vibes it’s a great fit for the upcoming winter.
Paid Sylenth1 Skins
Sylenthon by killihu
Killihu’s Sylenthon is actually the only paid skin I was able to find. In contrast to the other ones in here the entire arrangement has been changed and it almost looks like an Ableton Live stock plugin. You can currently purchase it for €15.
How To Change Sylenth1 Skins
In oder to open up a Sylenth skin on Mac simply drag the zip file and drop it above the GUI. That’s it. I can’t say anything about the installation process on Windows devices, but I’d guess that it works quite similar. Btw, some of the downloads from this list are already a few years old so they might not work with the lastest updates.
