Bazille

I know I answered that already, but I was making some new presets today and they sounded so good so I have to 'vote' again. :lol:

You guys are making me rethink BAzile. :) I've been on the entirely justified U-He hype train since Urs first posted More Feedback Machine on osxaudio.com, so I default to Zebra as my all time favorite U-He plug in.

The current batch:
Constant favorites- Zebra, Falcon, Plasmonic, Pigments,

Up and comers- Equator 2, Lion, Knifonium, Sektor, SQ-80

Kontakt, Sampletank, Analog Lab with all Arturia synths etc. and Play get used, but it's various libraries not their interfaces that make them.

i got rapid recently, after going deeper in the programing i can say it s a really good plugin.. one i have the most fun programing with serum and massive X and the sound is a bit a cross between both, my top these days, are these 3 but i have way too much great sounding ones.. just the interface on these i have fun so i use them the most

Hi everyone. First post here but hey...I've been reading the forum years ago. 😊

Now, related to the main post.
My personal favourites (right now... but normally changes every three months or so) would be pigments 3, ezbass and superior drummer 3.
But my essential plugin for my workflow (the one that I always go when I start a session ... ) is definitely Scaler2. Such a great plugin.

I'm looking for XO xln but I can't quite decide to jump and buying since I have a nice workflow with ableton drumrack and superior drummer. Is XO worth it under those circumstances? Any help?
