Logic Amp Designer and EZDrummer (usually with Metal Machine) for composing.
YMCK Magical 8-bit for chiptune stuff.
For mixing I tend to make do just fine with Logic's own effects except for a few things.
Audio Damage's RoughRider Compressor (I love this thing, it makes compression so easy and it's free)
Camel Audio's Camel Crusher
Voxengo PHA-979 (well, I would if I could be bothered to buy it)
Voxengo Latency Delay
Hey there hun, I'll play anything you want me to. Oh yeah, stroke my strings baby. Finger my fret board.
- reFX Nexus (mostly)

Hi! - I make music as a hobby. I also like anime and video games :3
StormGate for fancy gating
Electri-Q for EQ
GVST bundle pack for mixing, compression, and other effects (mostly volume management for plugins that that handle Modplug well)
DirectX Media effects for reverb (or sometimes just clever playback of samples)
That's pretty much my bread and butter, really.

my latest complextro song i made the greatest sounding chords with massive, i'll probably use it more often!!!
it's called "midnight ice", you can check it out if you want!!!
Depends on the song, but:
In order of most used:
Absynth (Pretty much anything)
Kontakt (The Giant, standard libraries e.t.c.)
Battery 3 (Drums and sampling)
Stock Logic effects
We both started to work with FL Studio 10 almost 2 years now. We had very little experience with producing music previously. I remembered vaguely how to play the piano, Paul not even remembering how to play the guitar. I thought we needed to get the most expensive VSTs to get the best sound, but as Paul pointed out, I don't need the best piano in order to sound good. So, we both got Massive and that was it. We use Toxic Biohazard, 3xOsc, Sytrus,, Z3ta+, Harmless, Massive, and soundfonts. That's the extent of it. We might throw in a third party synth here and there, but we don't put too much emphasis on the type of VST. We find we can produce the sound we want with enough processing and 3xOsc.
Before our fellow aspiring music producers plunk down a wad of cash on a fancy VST, we both recommend sticking with the basic ones given to you by Image Line before you progress on to something like NI FM8.

standard image-line effect plugins + rf Destroyer. <--- this thing can turn anything into artillery barrages.
I'm fucking poor, my equipment is shit and my vst's are incredibly limited.
Some of the best sounds Iv ever herd came out of 3xosc. True story. You can do anything, I BELIEVE IN YOU.

Making music for media is what I do for a living so, yes :)
Most of the stuff I played around with "illegally" before I bought them to make 100% sure that it was worth buying. I spend way too much time making sure if it's worth it, so this list is a pretty good resource for those of you wanting to buy some new libraries.
On my YouTube channel I always list the libraries that are used in the track to help people listen to what they sound like when they are actually used in a full length production.
