Toxic is still a superb synth IMO and some of my best sounds have been made with it. But of course all my sounds are shit so that stands irrelevant. However the cutoff capabilities are so clean, the effects are superb and 6 extremely flexible oscillators make it a formidable opponent in the digital synth wars of today. The matrix, sequencer and linker are also fabulous. It's sounds are gentle and warm which tends to put it out of the realm of glitched leads that modern genres desire but I still use it all the time for hands up techno, complextro pad intros and trance. Great synth. It will always be there for you as a beginner, as an intermediate, and although I can not vouche for this yet, as a pro. Just fealt like I'd say some more about it. Finally I'm surprised no one has mentioned morphine or curve 2 yet.

Massive, Omnisphere, FM8 & Absynth are my favourites.

I dislike the Omnisphere UI, but that synth sounds awesome and was way too expensive, so I have to use it.

I love 3xOsc. I use it for the majority of my electronic stuff.

Plucked is fun because to me it is like composing a robotic orchestra playing in pizzicato.

I stick by the fact that Synth1 is absolutely fantabulous, but if I had to choose my synth of the moment it'd have to be Harmor. I've made some seriously awesome basses by layering it with Sytrus.

And since we're also talking about FX and doohickeys, Fruity Flangus is my secret weapon.

MASSIVE BABY!!

I also like tb_peach, 3xOsc, simsynth. And I wish I was more masterful with sytrus and fm8.
But I actually resort to soundfonts a lot now. SGM V2.01 is amazing.
