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

Taking a break from music right now, working on other things, but hopefully will get back into it when Repro is finally released. Also hoping that Pulsar Modular are still working on transfering their modular over to the PC. And then, I'll have months to play with those.

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.
