My sound design obsession start with few free 32bit vst synths,some of which i like and use till today among newer 64 bit vsti.
Each year new free synths are released,some of them very powerful like Vital and Surge,replacing old ones and the order of favorites is changing,so this is my 2021 'Must have' old synths list,based on my taste of sound and usefulness in the mix:
1.Synth1
2.TAL NoiseMaker (4.7)
3.Tone2 Firebird
4.Podolski (also all other uhe free vst)
5.T-Force alpha(1.52 64bit)
6.Contralogic Feldspar
7.PG8X
8.Vk-1 Viking
9.Fullbucket (all synths)
10.Tunefish

The new releases i like and use:
1.Deducktion
2.Collab

That's why is obsession,it's part of your life :)
I am subtractive synthesis lover and my preferences are kind of limited in this direction,so if FM or ADDITIVE synthesis enthusiasts have different list, please share it ,so newbies to find something according to their taste :)
Music is magic and beauty,how not to find time? :)
Cheers :)

have to wait for more serious users i guess :)
There is really nice synths out there, which stay under the radar and never get enough attention.
Today you can produce pro music with two-three commercial and 10-15 free vst synth plus tones of dope free fx.
It wasn't possible 10 years ago,so for newbies is perfect time to start their music career,hoby,mania or obsession :)
Cheers :)

utter bullshit.
This signature tells the story really, as quoting insults directed at me makes me someone with an over-inflated ego.

The latter. It is also scientifically proven though that you only need 1,853 commercial synths in average to produce pro music.
Plugins and a DAW. On an operating system. Which runs on a computer.

So basically you only want people to respond if they agree with you. Nuff said.
