Heck, I only use three synths.

3) Albino 3
2) Omnisphere
1) Alchemy

The rest are samplers.

Have and love many... but always use:

Sylenth (no. 1 from day 1)
Firebird (though slowly moving to Gladiator - but still not too familiar with it)
Jamstix (unbelievable software, my best friend in terms of percussion)
Largo (despite the rip-off-factor its sound is sooooo cool)
VAZ Modular (most straightforward modular synth out there due to its incredible layout; also has the best sequencer concept ever found in software synths, imo)

1 TB for $70, 1.5 TB for $90, 2 TB for $140!?

Just months ago I remember 1 TB HD's were going for around $180! :shock:

I wouldn't be surprised if we see 4 TB HD's for around $200 next year.


Yeah, I guess 4 TB would be pretty good... at least until the next version of Trillian.
Yes, I will take your drum samples.

Becouse, lot of synths are beautiful.. But people vote seems only Fat 5

So, How about Hot vintage5, Hot hardwear like 5, Hot Digital(wavetable) 5, Hot modern 5, Hot Virus like 5, Hot Pad 5, Hot beautiful tone 5, Hot 2009 5, Hot many used 5?

Ofcouse, recent softwere synth issue is looks what is Hot Fat 5

Ok Im going to help you out here.. buy yourself a copy of Massive (on special offer at the moment), some of D16's plugs/distortions/fazortan, then sit down learn how to use Massive and addthe above to taste.. seriously you can cover a lot of those "5"s (minus the hardware) with some thought and application.

IMO too much choice is unproductive.

My top 5 synths,

1. Minimonsta
2. Subboombass
3. OP-X
4. Ultra Analog
5. FMHeaven

others I have are Jupiter 8v/Predator/Imposcar/PPG Wave/Tarkus/Prophet V!

Shit that's 11 soft synths and I'm still interested in Shioitor!

It' actually a bit weird doing a list like this because in reality my favourite hardware synths(from liking certain records are)

1. Prophet 5
2. Minimoog
3. Jupiter 8
4. OB-X
5. FM7

3 emulations of my favourites have made the list but only 1 in the same place!

If it was drum machines I think the list would be the same if they all existed! So Battery 3/samples fills the gap!

1. Roland 808 1. Nepheton
2. Roland 909 2. Drumazon
3. Roland 707 3. Nithonat
4. Casio RZ-1 4. JM-1
5. Roland 606 5. SD2100
6. Linndrum
7. DMX
8. SP1200

http://www.vst4free.com/free_vst.php?comment=1&id=175 for the Linn Drum emulation called JM-1

http://www.vst4free.com/free_vst.php?id=171 for the SP1200 emulation

also Minidrumz 2 http://www.vst4free.com/free_vst.php?id=423 for various drum synths :D

I don't really know as I couldn't compare it, really it should reduce the quality and don't know if it does! But it is made with the assistance of the maker of the orignal SP1200, if you know more about give it a try, think it features some of the original sounds, not sure, I've installed it but obviously usually use battery 3, you could make kits with 'Goldbaby' SP1200 sample set for some old school realism :D I love the sound of the Linn Drum JM-1 though...reminds me of some 1986 type hip hop joints!

Battery 3 is my main VST for drums as well, looks interesting Ill give it a try, there's a video featuring Alan Braxe using an SP1200 in future music you can see why there's such a vibe about them. :) Cheers
