VST: Throbber, all Mokafix distortion pedals (probably the best digital distortion imo), EMT-2000, "the classic pack", Waldorf D-Pole, Cyclotron, Sugar Bytes Vogue, all Variety Of Sound

GlaceVerb, forgot about that one. I've got it too and it's one of the best software reverbs around. Though, I had to stop using it because I had used it so much through almost every configuration that I had to get something new.

I highly recommend it to everyone.

I run Windows XP, Cubase SX3, and along with a shedload of hardware synths i mainly use the free VST's Blockfish (compressor) Ixoxdelay, and Dr Fusion (Drum synth). Also have Kontakt and EZ drummer for samples.

I still use some of the free Cubase plugins like grungelizer, A1, Monologue, Chorus, Reverb B, etc etc, is that crap? XD

I've got lots but I'm trying to use hardware instead if possible.
The most frequent ones I still use are:

Ableton 8
Native Instruments FM8
TAL U-No-LX2
Fabfilter Pro-Q
D16 Decimort
PSP Lexicon 42

I want to give Sound Toys Echoboy a try sometime soon though.

I'm looking into Pro-Q myself - I was very impressed with the Youtube tutorial.



But I'll hold off a little until I see whether Live 9 bothered to copy it correctly, and there's another big purchase that's in the way at the moment.

No idea if it sounds better/worse than anything else but it looks pretty, it's clearly laid out and it's flexible. Definitely gets a thumbs-up from me .

Any DAW plus Komplete 8 by itself is already too many; it's more than most studios would have 20 or 30 years ago.

If they were hardware keyboards or racks, you'd have a pretty stuffed studio, which brings its own set of problems (or not: these problems have solutions, provided that you spend enough money)

If they costed as much, you'd be wealthy (or wealthy no longer ).

But - they don't!

So when you judge it as "too many", are you using the criteria you'd normally judge equivalent hardware setups with?

Each softsynth has its own flavor, much like hardware synths. If you know when and how to use that flavor, of course it's better to have more of them.

How do you find Z3ta? Heard good things.. what does it excel at..

I'm super careful when I buy software now.. I have very few bits, having a lot of software I find is the worst possible thing for creativity, it sucks it dry.

Me personally?

Synths; STROBE, CYPHER, MASSIVE, FM8, ABSYNTH, REASON.
The most used are Reason's synths, I put reason as a synth as I don't use it as a DAW, more of a synth with it's effects and then rewire into Logic. I am obsessed with it as a creative tool, absolutely obsessed.

The least used is Absynth as I haven't taken the time to learn it better like my other synths. It is probably the most complicated as well, which is a bit of a downer in my opinion, creativity needs simplicity.

Processing:

Cytomic Glue, UAD Quad Satellite with various plugs, to name a few, 1176 collection (****ing amazing) Manley Massive Passive (another triumph), Fatso (Good.. very good), Struder Tape (not used much, but nice for adding something to my own loops). Want to get more UAD plugs when the budget allows.. I've just spent over £30,000 on hardware over the last two years so buying stuff is tough. Bloody hell they're great plugs though.

My favourite thing, (even gets close to my hardware) is Reason though. It has literally changed my life and breathed air into my productions. It is the most creative thing on earth and now they have released rack extensions, it's just entered a whole new cool. There are already some great ones.

I don't use much of it anymore, unless I'm out with just the MBP, so I'm a little hard-pressed to remember every plugin. Though seeing some of these lists, I don't feel like I have a truckload anymore lol. I'm definitely on the light side FX-wise, and pretty low when it comes to synths. And yes it's all legit :p

DAWs:
Ableton Live 8.3.4 Suite
Studio One Pro 2.5
Reason 6.5 (considering selling, though I really like it's synths. Just don't use it enough)
Renoise 2.8
Numerology 3 Pro (nothing like it)
OhmStudio
Jeskola Buzz (OG version for older songs, though honestly still high on my list)
Cubase 6 (really need to sell this one on; Cubase 7 has devalued it enough)

Synths:
uTonic
Synplant
Axon
Gladiator
kiloHearts ONE
Scanned Synth Pro (nothing like it)
Digits (Phase Distortion freebie)
Granite
Aalto
Circle
ABL2

Effects:
CamelSpace
Discord3
Eos
RP-Verb
RP-Delay

I have a few other plugins that I no longer use, but technically still own because I can't sell them off

DAW: Logic Pro 8 so easy and logic.

U-he Zebra 2 my main softsynth! the best in my opinion,can sound warm or ice cold, it is your choice, Diva is in my pipline

Native Instruments: Battery 3 easy to use but a little old now, Reaktor 5 one of the best and it still sounds great.

Spectrasonics: Omnisphere good sounding engine but not so many sounds in there that I can use, hardly using it any more.

Virsyn: Tera 3 sounds great but the GUI is very old and flat.

Applied Acoustics: Tassman 4 one of the fattest most analog sounding.Love the sound but the GUI is not so nice, Ultra Analog.

Korg: KLC Analog Edition.

Rob Papen: Albino 2 great synth! great for warm analog lead sounds and pad sounds.

Softsampler EXS24 (Logic Pro) but soon Kontakt or Motu, I think it will be Motu Mach Five 3.

Audio Damage: EOS reverb

ArtsAcoustic: Reverb great sounding and one of the best!

Valhalla DSP: ValhallaROOM this is one of the best reverbs!

EvilDragon! how is the Motu Mach Five3 compared to Kontakt? It looks easier to work with=better GUI in my taste and the synth engine with real Granular synthesis. I have tried Kontakt granular synthesis and it is not so good compared to Mach Five3. Is the sound warmer on Mach Five3?
