last bought: Icarus in 2019 - got I2 for free a few months later (newest in use is the free version of Vital though)
next: nothing planned, other than most likely the Zebra 3 update, should it ever surface.

I didn't started buying plugins until later in my musical timeline. I had Sonar 4 which had a good deal of plugins with it, but I guess those don't count (Rapture and others)

After that, the first official one I bought was either Battery 3 or Wusikstation v1.
The last one I bought just recently was HALion 6.

Next one I’ll buy: not sure atm

Way back when...I worked with Digidesign's Softsynth on the Atari ST, but it was standalone (no VSTs then, as it was around 1988).

Same here. I started buying stuff way after my first contact with audio software. Probably 10 years later or something, when I was more serious about getting into it.

first: FM7/8 (2012)
latest: upgraded to V-Collection 8, does it count? Maybe SQ-80 qualifies better.
next: probably Martinic AX-73

First plugin: ReFx TBL, 2001-ish. Last: HY Poly a couple of months ago. Next ? Not sure yet. Have my eye on HoriZEN when it's released.
