It's a bit mind boggling to me now, but I actually paid for both the Sound Designer reverb and ES2 synth plugins which were made in-house by Emagic, who, at the time, owned Logic prior to Apple. I can't remember what I paid for the ES2, but the Sound Designer was around four hundred quid, which was a significant outlay for me then. I don't use the ES2 much these days but I do still use Sound Designer an awful lot. At the time (around 2003) it was positioned as a head-on competitor to Altiverb (released a year earlier), in what was then a pretty uncrowded marketplace of convolution reverbs. I still love its 'Large Spaces' folder, and the halls in particular are really very good, even now.

For third party stuff, I still have installed my (G-Media now G-Force) Oddity running alongside the Oddity 2. It is so modest in terms of cpu that I can run gazillions of them without ever approaching a problem. To my ears, there are very few soft synths that have come along that approach the musicality of the Oddity. Native Instrument's Monark has been the only plugin mono-synth that has grabbed me in the same way.

Really enjoyed reading this thread. It's great to be reminded of everything that has come, gone and stayed over the last 15-20 years.

Absynth 2 - The modulation options keep it fresh-sounding. Or at least good-sounding. :D
A well-behaved signature.

Well, it is for those of us who have been using them since the TDM days. The first time I used Echoboy on a PTHD system was in 2006.

I just remembered I still use Spectra, by Kjaerhus Audio. I don't know what it is about it, but it always sits nicely in a mix.
PITA to program anything on purpose, but many happy accidents.

Vanguard, Superwave TrancePro.

Got some more on my system still for legacy/opening old projects but I don't really use them on new projects anymore. (Variety of Sound stuff mostly)

Oh yes, and most things Andreas created really. I still have polyiblit installed, I think the sound is showing it's age (bit brittle?) but still has a place. And Lazysnake! What a versatile plugin, had such a nice low end I used it for bass a lot of the time.
