There are so many and I'm finding more each day.

I've never been more impressed than with Big Tone's presets, especially his work on Hypersonic 2, which was a lot of the factory patches. Unfinished and Zahev makes nice patches too. I could probably list 10 others if I stop to think, some I only know from there first name, like Brandon who released Starmap for Dune 2 etc.
High Quality Soundsets for Lush-101 | Hive | Electra 2 | Diversion | Halion | Largo | Rapid | Dune II | Thorn | and Spire.

One of my favourites is 7Skies, who recently also developed a Kontakt instrument called Getlow.
I remember he (David Boldini) made also good trance presets for Massive and Sylenth. Unfortunately he lost a bit of his reputation after he copied from a song (Firewall "Sincere") and released it as his own song "Sushi" without mention the original producers.

Matt Bowdler (The Unfinished)

I like what Daniel "Status" Stawczyk did for LittleOne.

Yes, that was pretty blatant, but I guess it still does not detract from his sound programming talents. Stupid move on his part there.

not sure if mentioned but for me it's gotta be ...

Sound7

I own all the repro-5 patches( synth wave and esoteric) had I other synths I'd probably own their other sets as well judging the demos

I own repro packs from other designers but for me this ones are a cut above

^that looks like some bank indeed. I remember he has a decent one for strobe2, which is rare
Would have to agree with this, best I've heard are SOUND7 and Luftrum. :)

Most of my favourites have already been mentioned by others in this thread, so I'm going to nominate a few more that haven't been mentioned.

In no particular order:

Zak (PatchAdamz) - VintageSynthPads
Jaap Visser - Triple Spiral Audio
Vin - MIDIssonanace
My main tools: Kontakt 5, Omnisphere 2, Iris 1 (not interested in V2), Padshop Pro, Samplemodeling SWAM and Zebra 2.

Lennard from LennarDigital (Sylenth1, you know). People asked how to recreate a certain sound and Lennard delivered on spot. Amazing skills.

Other than that I like Zentralmassiv, to me the only one who knows to handle MPowersynth right, and Bmanic for his FX presets in Timeless (Fabfilter). Never forgot his name only because of this.

So many good sound designers, excelling in different areas with different tools.
A diffinitve top 10 is like asking what is the best compressor or the best daw.

Some I have *recently* drawn inspiration from:
Le Lotus Bleu
Venus Theory
leap into void
Some nameless dude from YouTube (amazing modular patch)
