For me it has to be Ace/Bazille.

I can do anything I want and much, much more. The GUI is so easy to navigate given the exceptional complexity as well.

A second place probably goes to Fabfilter Twin. Its not super amazing, but I am constantly grabbing it to implement ideas quickly. The usability and immediacy of use makes it valuable to me.

TBH, after listening to many sound demos, that was also my verdict. Not even close. The software sounds flat and dry like a fart, while the filter of the real thing is very creamy, and the oscillator quite fat. I'm not a fan of the KLC MS-20, and that's also why i bought and sold it 2 times now. Anyone who's after that kind of sound should really buy the hardware IMO.

In the case of MS-20, there are no many choices in the software! It would be great if Synapse Audio or u-he make an emulation for it like the Legend or RePro~1. But I don't know how tolerant is Korg about it. Anyway, I'm buying 'any' analogue emulation from those two companies blindly (well all I need is my ears anyway :hihi: )
My lovely setup: Windows 10, Reason 10, Cubase 9.5, AudioBox iTwo, Casio PX-5S, Korg microKey & nanoKontrol and a bunch of great soft synths and instruments :)

Just out of curiosity, if you could design this ultimate synth, what would it be like?

Other question is why does your favorite synth have to be one that could do everything?

The fact that you have a favorite synth does not mean you are not allowed to also use other ones besides it.
The question was not which synth you choose if you could only use one while FWIW my Blofeld would still be a good option in that case.

My ultimate synth would be totally modular like Eurorack. Have virtually every module imaginable. Have every form of synthesis including VA, FM, Wavetable, Additive, Granular, Acoustic Modeling and whatever else I've missed above. It would not have a "static" color like traditional synths so if you wanted to, it could sound like Serum and then turn around and sound like Diva or any synth you can think of.

With that kind of synth, you COULD literally throw away everything else you owned because this synth would have the capability of sounding like any synth you've heard of any synth you've yet to hear, limited only by your imagination.

Interesting. See, I prefer synths that focus on a few things and excel at them. They feel better-designed and more inspiring to me. So, for basically the opposite reason as you, I can't really pick a favorite either :P

I'm primarily a guitar player, so I tend to gravitate towards cheesy romplers.

Syxg50.
Allows me to play old midi files in reaper without too much fuss.

Sonic Charge Cyclone.
Tons of 80s/90s sounds in an instant.

Dexed
I think I now get FM ... Sort of :)

PPg wave sim by the VSTHost dev.
This thing is an animal... Once I learn how to jack the lfo into the wave selector thing. :) :)

Synth1.
If I really need to get freaky, I always turn to the Mr Wobble patches.

TX16WX
let's me actually use my motley collection of one shot drum kits and various other multi sample instruments that I've thrown together over the years.

6 = 1 ???????

No.

Six is not the same as ONE. It does not equal one. You are mistaken.

Bazille with the gearporn skin - how often does one get such a powerful and diverse synth in a 1 page layout?? It's freakin awesome!

Did you check out VeeSeeVST? The vst version of VCV Rack. It comes with a ton of free modules.
