To the OP CJ1973

CJ1973 - what have you tried yourself that are worth a mention?

I like KarmaFX, NI Massive & FM8 and OP-X.

If could only have one of the above? - I'd actually be ok with any of the four.

Minimax and almost anything on the sonic core plattform.It eats those dull and powerless minimoog vst´s alive.Even the guys on the moog music forum were aroused and that isnt happening often with a plugin there.

DCAM sounds really good in the track...beats Omnisphere and Analog Factory by far, but those come in second.
Massive and the other NI's never cut as well in a track, and most others I have just sound small compared to these.

I absolutely hate the GUI on the DCAM, and it's pretty buggy
But the sound is raw and big in a way that makes the others feel tame and polished.

I really love the impOSCar. Such velcro-esque leads, it's fantastic.

I'm sorry but i would definately NOT call the V-station fat. It is a decent synth that has been used in countless releases but generally would be layered with other synths for a fatter sound. To me it sound extremely thin

Then I don't know what "fat" means to you guys.

Lots of harmonic content?

Lots of bass?

Loudness??

what?

That us what makes this topic very subjective. Depends what you call fat

If by fat you mean analog sounding with lots of harmonic distortion then i'd say Synth Squad and PolyKB are pretty fat. If you mean by fat big unison sounds then you could go to Massive or Sylenth1

I do. Pretty good emulation of the original, including glitches and imperfections. Yes, if you A/B with a real OB-X, you can still hear the difference, but inside your mix, it's virtually identical.
