Wiggle. Modulated waveshaping and fm and all that. Gotta wrap my head around it but makes real f*ckin cool sounds easy.

Synthmaster One and MPowersynth. I really should open up Harmor and the Mangle again too.

Bass Station II
I just started with hardware. Works better and more intuitively for me.

I never got ACE, even when I had a coupon awhile ago I was still too broke to get it. I'm sure I'll get it sometime in the future.

I just got Komplete 11, and I'm really looking forward to learning Rounds and turning it into my workhorse synth.

edit: oh, and also Reaktor Blocks

Zebra 2 - been doing a pad package
Alchemy - realized how dumb it is to not learn this monster when I have it
Spire - was trying to emulate a repro1 sound in Diva, but the filters in spire came closer for that particular use, resonant filter sweeps
Nerve - finally grabbed this, now learning how to use it :)

I'm exclusively working with LuSH-101 for current project(s).

I find it has the perfect balance between simplicity and depth of programming.

Which is to say, at its core it's a relatively straightforward subtractive synth, and not particularly complex; but the Layering system, and the inclusion of just the right amount of modulation options, makes it plenty deep in terms of sound design. I keep finding cool new tricks that open new doors in my design work.

The only thing that could pull my attention away is the promised Repro-5.... but I bet at that point I'll just focus on both :P

I am exploring my Fantom G, which I have had since sunday. As always when I get a new synth, first mission is to make my own bass patches, lots of them. I need them to be big, fat, moving (by lfo) and different from just basic bread and butter sounds. When working with romplers I first spend a lot of time to make some analog stylish basses, but then I may add a bell waveform or other digital waveform to give them personal edge. It is always a big challenge to me to make romplers sound as analogish as possible for a start but one that I really like. Often they are filled with boring bread and butter trivia or they are a living dance/trance Hell, like my MC909. I want them to ooze of Berlin School, Synth Pop and Industrial/EBM. Lots of waveforms to go through and layer for the purpose but sooner a later I usually find the ones I need.
