Image-Line Harmless FREE Presets

On this “Page” I’ll be posting Royalty Free presets I’ve developed fo r Image-Line’s Harmless. This means you are free to use these in your own compositions. You are not allowed to use these presets in sound libraries. These presets were programed from scratch from an “init” or “default” state.

MODULATE THIS 01 – Presets for Image-Line Harmless

This library contains 12 sounds that show off the harmonic range of Harmless. Make sure you try using notes across the whole spectrum of the keyboard and use velocity, MOD Wheel and aftertouch.

Hi Al,
Your most welcome. Glad your enjoying them and they are working on your PC. They were a lot of fun to create. I like the synth a lot so as I go along I’m creating more presets. Somewhere down the road I’ll release the best of the batch.
I agree, Harmless was a no brainer purchase.
Thanks for taking the time to comment.


Thank you for the FL studio preset version. I like them a lot! They’re also low cpu enough that I can use them in my underpowered pc. They are very creative. With that set your own price Harmless was a no-brainer.


Thanks for you kind words about Modulate This! Much appreciated.
Don’t feel bad that your not getting it right away. The magic of this synth is how filter+phaser+harmonizer+additive mask together – but it may tak you a few tries till it makes sense. Walk thought the tutorials and keep experimenting.
So the tutorials are in C:Program FilesImage-LineIL Harmless in the Harmless help file.
The good news is you can use presets for now and grow into this synth much quicker than any other additive synth out there.


Thanks mark, I do enjoy the presets, maybe because I’m a noob on this type of synths I’m having some trouble getting the sound I want, but as soon as I get some cool presets I’ll be happy to share them with you! (thanks I havent noticed the tutorials only the basic controls, that is helping a lot)
Also I make this comment longer just to tell you I’m a big fan of your website, keep up the work! 🙂
