I've tried most of vst synths (in our galaxy) and if easy workflow and time spend to achieve nice sound was measure i would order few synths as most easiest to play and generate great sound this way:
1.Synth1
2.v-station
3.Sylenth1

These three r 90's trance machines and don't compare to modern one page synths like Synthmaster One or Hive2,but simplicity and really nice sound they produce makes them very usable more than decade in countless mixes.
Please share your opinion and favorite synths,so other people to see different perspective.
Thanks :)

I think this is a totaly useless topic, thats my opinion.

Why? alot of BS in what you said based on your own and few others in the community opinions.

Wtf, why are so many people on KVR so mean?

OP, I haven't used Synth1 or V-Station but I feel that Spire is easier and quicker to program than Sylenth.

What I never liked about Sylenth1, and probably never will is the way the filter cutoff controls are implemented. Can't get my head around the global cutoff parameter at all. It just doesn't make sense to me.

Vintagey synths (Repro-1/Synapse The Legend/TAL Bassline/U-NO-LX) for me, Zebralette outside the vintage sphere

Sylenth1 and Spire are different generations,trance spirit drive both,Spire is more powerful and contemporary in term of modulations,but miss something that Sylenth1 have,rediscover 90s-2t's and the hardware character of three above makes them perfect to me for classic trance,dance,edm whatever :) Just mention few i use almost every day,but for sure there is more,that's why ask,to see what other guys use as everyday synth :)Thanks :)

I am confused, is this a topic about you Velltone Music or sharing opinions about easy synths? :D because now it seems from your last post that this is a thread "what in velltone music opinion is a synth with easy workflow". Those so called "modern" synths like Synthmaster already existed in a form of Access Virus (VA + wavetable), Waldorf Micro Q ect. And they came before the mentioned soft synths.

...this is why ,again, i think these kind of topics are BS, lack of understanding, own point of view, do you research first buddy or post this on facebook and twitter for the casuals :)

Btw im not mean, but really, give a bit of critical thought about posted :)

The only really easy synth is Fullbuckets MPS...
If standard subtractive is too complex, learn it with Syntorial...
If any sound design is too alien, just any synth which can recall presets and has a lot, is what you deserve...
And if the number of presets is overwhelming, get a GM rompler...

V-station is one which is a pretty good balance between simplicity and features.

Personally I find the more complex an instrument is the less I tend to use it!

Uhe Diva is fairly straightforward and sounds good

Do you just not understand how to socialize? The above is very rude.

Although for me personally synth1 is easy and Hive 2 (and Bazille) is very difficult I guess it's just a matter of time spent. Hopefully anyway. Not planning on using synth1 anymore.

Hive 2 is a good shout. All on one page etc

Edit whoops didn't read your post properly. I've not actually demo'd but supposedly meant to be quite intuitive?

Hive 2 is a good synth in terms of operation. One of the rather easy synths, and it was made with that in mind, I think.

I'd second Spire as well. It's also very straight forward IMO. Although it features some non standard stuff, and the GUI is a bit all over the place in some parts, because the devs implemented stuff, which surely wasn't planned. I think Spire 2 will be much better in that regard. Whenever it will be released.
