The number of plugins you could use is endless.
I use Propellerhead Reason. You can not use vst plugins for that, only samples, but it is a very versatile program in itself, you can get any sound out of it you want, so you dont really need vst plugins. You can rewire it with a lot of other programs though, making it a very advanced plugin in itself. Also there are many sample and preset refills for Reason available. Just look at the Propellerhead site.
Another cool program by Propellerhead, that you can use as plugin is Rebirth. It is an emulation of the legendary Roland TR 808 drum computer. This is I think the most used drum computer of all time. It has a very characteristic sound, that does not sound like an acoustic drum at all, but most electronic drum computers try to sound like this one. Rebirth also has the successor to the TR 808, the TR 909. Not as characteristic, but nice if you want a different sound. It also has a double TB 303 bass. You can create some very phat synth basses with this one, as well as nice or weird sequences. It is also available for the iphone and ipad.
If you are looking for vintage sounds, that still work well in modern music, try finding vsts for a Moog synth, a Hammond organ, and a Fender Rhodes electric piano. Rumpelrausch Taips ZR3 and B4 Organ are good Hammond organ vsts. Lounge Lizzard EP 2 a good Fender Rhodes. Minimoog V and Modular Moog V are nice Moog vsts. There are tons more.
Symphony of Voices by Spectrasonics is still one of the best sound banks for choir and voice samples. Works well with symphonic music, metal, dance or anything you want.
A vast instrument sample library is Kontakt 5 by Native Instruments.
Extensive libraries for symphonic samples are ProyectSam Symphobia 1 and 2 (2 has no samples from 1) for general orchestral samples. True Strike 1 and 2 for percussion. Cinesamples Cinebrass CORE and or PRO for brass sections. Orchestral Tools Berlin Woodwinds for woodwinds. Orchestral Tools Orchestral String Runs 2 for strings.
AudioEase Altiverb 7 gives you superb reverb for many type of environments, including symphony halls, but also sport stadia, catherdrals, clubs, rooms, outdoor, digital reverbs or many other environments.
I hope you will find what you are looking for.
