Omnisphere 2 and Nexus 3. Pretty much a tie.

Diva by far the one I use the most. Ableton Wavetable getting the second spot.

2018: ANA 2, Synthmaster.
2019: Dune 3 by a long shot. ANA 2 second.
2020: Dune 3, but Pigments is going strong and the more I use it, the more I like it

You should better ask which Part/Method of which Synth the Audience uses most.

Dune for WT and clean FM
MSF for hybrid and additive Synthesis
Rhino for complex FM
Halion 4 Sampling, MSF for Preset Generation

HAL and MSF +50% at the Moment.
Always on the Run ... :wheee:

Lately, mostly Rapid.

I have WAY too many synths. As an exercise, I'd like to do my own OSC, and do a track using only one synth (except for drums) with each of the major synths I own. If nothing else, it might precipitate a big sell-off (who am I kidding).

Here's my current list, not counting free synths. Almost everything was purchased on sale, over many years, but still...

Collections:
Arturia V 7
NI Komplete 12 Ultimate — Collector's Edition
Steinberg Absolute V3 (Halion, Padshop 2, etc.)
All TAL synths
All U-He synths
Melda MCompleteBundle (MSoundFactory and MPowerSynth)
Reason 11 Studio Edition

Individuals:
Aparillo
BioTek 2
Diversion
DS Thorn
Dune 3
Fabfilter One
Fabfilter Twin 2
Fathom
Kilohearts One
The Legend
ME80 v2
Xils miniSyn-X
OP-X Pro II
Phase Plant
Pigments
Poly-Ana
Rapid
Serum
Spire
Synthmaster 1
Synthmaster 2
Xils Sin-X 2
Xils PolyKB III
Ultra Analog VA-3
VacuumPro
Voltage Modular
VPS Avenger
Xils 3.2
Xils 4
Plus a couple of rack extensions for Reason:
Korg Mono/Poly
Blackpole Station
I feel like one doesn't realize what a money pit music production is until they're this deep in software synths.

Spire is my number one most used synth. For me it's the fastest to get a desired result. Serum comes second when I have a Sound in mind that I think would be easier to make in Serum. And I use ANA2 when I need a kinda analouge sounding synth (there may be better ones but it was only 50$).

I picked up ANA2 on sale and while I prefer Hive and Serum as my primary synths, ANA2 has a certain character to it and is especially good for psy bass and detuned saw plucks and leads.
Always Read the Manual!
