As the title says - Best modern hardware for trance style leads?

Still the Access Virus, I would guess.

Not sure how many of the big names still use hardware though. It seems to me that 99% of them use software only these days.
Plugins and a DAW. On an operating system. Which runs on a computer.

Yeah, the Virus is still as viable soundwise for modern trance as anything, although Access has pretty much stopped development.

Notation Peak seems to be a good option, too, although I’ve never used one myself.

Virus, Novation Peak, Waldorf Kyra, Hydrasynth, Korg Minilogue XD (with custom supersaw waveform), Deep Mind 12 is also a good contender (12 poly/unison).

Korg Modwave should work well...

I use Peak or A4 in poly mode for supersaws

Funny, I've actually found myself GAS'ing for a Peak ever since I replied to this thread and started watching some YouTube vids. I have a Korg Minilogue XD and agree with Lbdunequest that it would be a decent option as well. The digital waveforms can get into supersaw territory, but the biggest problem is probably the 4-note polyphony. I think a Prologue would probably be a better choice, but I've never used one.
