Plugins for an indie-pop band

Does anybody know what plugins are those bands using? And what plugins are good for this style?

Judging from the radio, these guys are the biggest pop-rap act in the world currently, so I'm trying to understand what you mean by the "indie" angle so I could better give an answer. This isn't my kind of music at all however their sound does grab you on the radio - but I think they're basically using the same plugins every other pop act is using.

No. There are no genres for plugins.

Ah,gotcha, "plugins" are synths now. You're right, that synth in the chorus totally makes the song. I don't know the exact synth but what you want is something spooky with portamento and add some nice reverb. GFunk 2.0, suburban white boy edition.

This is a totally cart-before-horse, bass-ackward way of making, thinking about, or even trying to appreciate music. It will result in ongoing frustration, doom and horrible results if pursued. Even if the Q is a 'which synth plugin'. Six of one, half dozen of practically any other decent synth will get a trained user 'there.'

The better answer to a bad question is simply this: any number of EQs, compressors, delays, verbs, softsynths, etc., etc., will do just fine, assuming first of all, one knows how to actually use them well and also assuming the musicians have lots and lots of actual talent. I have to assume the goal is to produce something of quality and the question not being asked merely to keep track of which plugins people use.

Eventually, someone will issue a Real Talent plugin and then the question really will become academic and only asked in interviews to help sell magazines and please the advertisers.
