I think my first one was the full version of Vital (totally worth).

Last one: I finally shelled out for SWAM Strings and Woodwinds. No regrets. I have a Touché, a Morph, a wind controller, and an expression pedal, so I have an embarrassment of options for expressive control. So fun to play around with.

Next: it’s gonna be a while and I already have a lot of bases covered. Probably something more esoteric like Abyss or Kaivo.

The first software instrument I bought was GranuLab, before plugin instruments were a thing. I think the first plugin instrument I bought was reFX QuadraSID, though I had plenty of freebies by that point.
The last one I bought was Arturia's SQ 80 V. I don't often splurge and jump on new stuff like that, but the (E)SQ is one of my all-time favorites, and the extra stuff they added sounded cool.
No plans yet for the next.

That's cool. Just to let everyone know, I personally didn't count updates (or re-buys) in my original post. I'm also doing demos on u-He Filterscape and Tracktion's Biotek 2 and F'em. Can't say I'm GASsing on any of them, but the idea of them is there still. So a too good to pass up second hand price could cause me to get. If for no other reason than to eliminate the noise cycle so I can really get to know if they're any real use to me.

First was probably FM Heaven
Latest, well Analog Lab came with the keylab 61 mk2 does that count?
It has made me interested in getting the V collection sometime in the future.
