Wow, loads of people here use NI! They're WAY out my price range (I don't really have a price range, actually), but I have'nt had any trouble at making weird, fucked up sounds with the ES2 and EFM freeware synths on Logic. That said, I here so many sick bases made on Massive.... At what point is NI worth buying dyou guys think?

My favourite VST to use is Omnisphere. In the same sense that my favorite organ to use is the dick. The one I use most often is Guitar Rig.

Nexus 2, Zeta and Massive are my main go to VSTs.

I will be purchasing Sylenth1 next week too

I'm really looking for one with great strings...

I am favorite VST? (hurrhurrhurrhurr)

No in all seriousness, I mostly use 3xosc as well. I just like the way I can work with it and the possibilities. For sub-bass I mostly use Sytrus.

fuck external VST's.

Main VST's would be Massive and Sylenth1. Other cool ones are tweakbench's assortment of free vst's which are amazing!

For VSTi's, I am definitely split between Synth1 and Superwave P8. P8 is all around decent for making anything between a cool lead and a noisy scratchy sound for 8-bit. It can even be ok for dubstep noises if you pass it through something like TAL-BitCrusher, which is also amazing. Synth1 is great for making arpegged sounds and trance. For drums, I'm DR-Fusion V2 all the way; it's simple, and you can use samples in it - to a limited degree. There is this synth called VOPM that can make some really nice chime-like sounds and probably more (if you can figure out how to use it).

For VST's, TAL-BitCrusher for downsampling and Reverbering for reverb. That's all I use at the moment.
Anything else is MIDI instruments or DirectX plugins.

I would use the free version of UVI Workstation as well, but I'd have to sample from it as it doesn't interface with ModPlug.
