Kontakt
well if he doesn't like the Falcon workflow, I can't imagine him wanting to go through the Kontakt workflow. But who know.
I was being slightly tongue in cheek. Kontakt is the most powerful if you roll up your sleeves and code the instrument you want using the embedded scripting language. But anyway, it’s pretty powerful even without that, and besides, it was pretty much the only one of the big synths that hadn’t been mentioned yet.

For what it’s worth, I don’t really enjoy the Falcon interface very much myself.
Incomplete list of my gear: 110V AC to 12V DC 1.5A power supply (+ tip)

DS Thorn has a noise osc which is actually a wav player.
Sorry for my bad English. I'm not a native speaker.

Biotek 2 is another option. I don’t own it but, I think I’m going to get it when it goes on sale again. The demos are nice

Get a felt marker, masking tape, a cheap used monitor,
and the cheapest used mac
that will run a few instances of Alchemy.

Make a label that says

M y
A lchemy
C omputer

You will be both forgiven, and happy :hyper:

It would really help to have some idea what it is you want to do but, for my money, I'd be looking at Sugar-Bytes' Factory. It is a brilliant synth and it can get very nasty, very easily. Sektor is a bit the same in terms of a nasty, aggressive sound, but it's sample oscillator is very basic.

I would add Virsyn Poseidon to this list - old, but still good.

Absynth has a lot of features and takes samples as the source in its 'oscillators', and takes audio in for it.
