My main tools: Kontakt, Omnisphere, Samplemodeling + Audio Modeling. Akai VIP = godsend. Tari's libraries also rock.

Stay away from common prefixes, roots and suffixes, like "aud," "-tor," "-tron," maybe. They wind up getting muddled in my mind together with like names, and I get confused. For crap plugins, this might be okay, as you can "steal" the notoriety of some other well-known product. Otherwise, I recommend going with something distinct from what is out there.

When Apple got notoriety, other companies rushed to imitate their name style. It went well for Google and Snapple (I think Boggle might have predated Apple), but there were all sorts of two-syllable, "-le" suffix imitators that I could not distinguish or keep separate in my mind.

I'm a marketing amateur, though, so I might be very wrong :)

With that said, I suggest, "Crispotronic Audstepple Beatenator."

I was thinking "Peggy 8" but SquarePeg is better. Melodology would be a good choice too.

It's shame Sample Logic took the name, but Arpology by Melodology sounds quite catchy.

Melodology sounds great.
True. Why not just call it that? :)
Because it's the company name, so I guess it's Melodology Pro-AS :-)
