WOW2 is one of the most analogue sounding fx ... maybe the best for warm analogue distortion and filter.
Yes, yes I know those tutorials, they're quite good to get the first push in the direction of Bodzins sound.
But I'm actually not searching for Bodzins sound-design itself, but rather the fundamentals of the sound that gets incorporated by Stephan.
So basically I'm searching for a Synthesizer that has the characteristics I like:
Dirty, raw, powerful with tight, grinding and punchy low-end and body and a not so subtle portion of unpredictability.
So basically the perfect synth would be a very own Sub 37 but as I said I'm pretty broke and I do feel that hardware isn't needed yet. I still have to learn, even in the instruments I use for over a few years now like Massive and Zebra 2 which I bought like 4 years ago or so.
By the way, I just bought Cytomic's The Drop and it's incredible. I compared it with WOW2 and while both sound great I liked The Drop a bit more.
It really sounds good and gives everything a nice warm feeling - like it!
Have a nice weekend!
I also own Zebra ... covers a lot of sonic ground, but I doubt that any softsynth will bring you close to a Sub37 (without additonal fx tweaking). My recommendation would be to check out Diva. The softsynth that feels most analogue to me is Repro, but that's a different sound characteristic. Bazille and Oddity2 could also be interesting if you are looking for softsynths with an "analogue" sound.
For Filters I can also recommend FilterShaper by Cableguys ... not that warm but the "Sallen Key"-Mode sounds really great.
I need to check out The drop now ...
