I've been playing music for about 20 years, and started electro music last year. For that reason, I guess I bought way more than 10 plugins, many of them are old stuff that you won't find exciting at all I guess. I haven't had the time to try'em all, so here are in no particular order those I somehow tried and found cool:

- Arturia Spark
- Hybrid 3 (I'm learning to use it thoroughly, it's so powerful and so underated!)
- Cable guys bundle (all of 'em, fun stuff to manipulate sounds!)
- East West Silk
- Stutter Edit
- Sound Toys bundle (all of them)
- SynthMaster One
- Waves Horizon bundle

I' ve seen Arcsyn mentioned couple of times here.
Anyone like to share his experience with this synth?

I have plenty of edm synths so what is unique about this one. I've read that the modulation and lfo's are a great strength of this synth. Looks pretty good for ambient.

arcsyn is cool, different. am always trying to find places to use it (had it since 2016, so not in this list).

2017, no particular order:
synthmaster one
ana 2
sonic arts vice
always one plugin short of perfection...

This is all the audio software I bought for 2017 that i can remember. I spent most of my money on other things this year.
