That being said i reeeeally dont want to throw down $800 just for omnisphere and trilian. Maybe there are perfect synths out there for me and i just havent met them yet? i currently use several kontakt instruments, Alchemy
, some best service stuff, and have an arsenal of sonivox plugins (which im sad to say IMO sound like crap compared to the others listed). While i WILL add omnisphere and trilian to my collection one day, i can think of a number if things id spend that kind of money on before i throw it down on just 2 soft synths, so if there are any synths i can get that spectrasonics sound quality from for a fraction of the price, please let me know!
Preset wise, probably nothing. For in-depth editing and just plain old toying around, there are options that are the euqal of Omni.
