Bazille, Diva and Zebra, as well as DrumSpillage2 if I fail to synthesize the drum/percussion I need with B or Z. I love those synths, they sound simply gorgeous (I love them even more now that I have a quite excellent monitoring system) and are so fast and easy to use.

Despite owning tons of software, literally dozens of soft synths....I mostly use Logic’s Retro Synth, Uhe Dark Zebra2 & Diva, then Synthmaster 2.9 & One. I can’t remember the last time I recorded with anything else, aside from hardware. I seriously need to sell a ton of licenses. For drums I use Ultrabeat, despite owning four other expensive drum plugins.

Tangle - pretty fascinating and fun to use, and each time I come back to it, I've returned with more knowledge, so it's less mysterious and easier to manipulate.

Well folks, just came through another major fire on our mountain. So I've decided to eliminate just about everything that can be eliminated.

The abandoned and NFR titles I'll be left with will have to suffice for whatever is next on my life's plate.

The one non-NFR I plan on keeping is the one I open almost daily and that is Pianoteq 6 Studio bundle along with one Studiologic VMK188+ controller. And I might swap the controller for something lighter.

The only other one I'm considering keeping it's HALion 6 and maybe one more. Other wise, I finally reached a point of change.

The NFR and abandoned titles I'll be left with are Alchemy 1; Garritan; Harmor; Rapture Pro/Dimension; Z3ta2+; MusicLabs, and some Blue Cat packs along with the defunct Cakewalk Splat and STank2.

And I have no problem sharing those abandoned/breached EULA titles with the five other family members that may get more use out of them now.

Thanks.

EnGee wrote: - Cubase and Reaper (almost equally and daily usage)
- Korg synths, FM8, Sylenth1 and blofeld (it is software in a box!)
- Battery 4 and Transfuser 2
Mostly the same but some changes.
Added:
- Reason 10 with some REs
- Tone 2 Nemesis and RayBlaster
- More NI synths!
- Softube Modular and Heartbeat
- Some other synths and instruments from various developers.

Not using:
- Blofeld (traded)
- All iLok software

The good thing is I'm almost using all of them equally, so my setup seems stable right now :)
