Currently the most used:
S1, Pigments, SQ80 V, Predator 3, Blade 2, Blue 2, Massive, FM8, Absynth and XO
Effects: mostly what's there in the DAW or the synth, but I do use Valhalla Vintage Verb the most of 3rd party effects. I usually use just slightly because I like the synth sounds mostly without reverb/delay "lushness".

Live 11 & Soundforge Pro with plugins by Audio Damage, Unfiltered Audio, Neold & brainworx mainly. Photoshop gets a lot of use here too.

I'm using less synthesizer in favor of things like the Creative Tools by Orch Tools which do extensive manipulation of their samples (like downtuning and timestretching) or something like Smart Spheres by VSL (and beefing things like brass up with saturation or amp cabinets, or tape modeling in situ there, as they started offering FX in Synchron, which are top drawer).

Audacity, Reaper, TAL Sampler, Sitala, Superior Drummer, Pianoteq, Analog Lab, Dune.

They’re the heavy lifters. I do use others though. Oh, plus various effects and whatever.

TAL plugins (either free & paid) — they provide the sound of the classic machines i need (101, Juno, Jupiter), TAL Sampler just rocks, and NoiseMaker is my to-go synth for a loooooong time
Audioblast Acidbox — because there's not so many native Linux emulations of 303
free or dirt cheap U-He plugins — ZebraCM, Beatzille, Tyrell N6, Podolski, Triple Cheese

I did not pay much attention to PianoTeq 7 Morphing feature first. But for about 6 weeks I am addicted. I have created a lot of morphing preset and like it. It's awesome.
I also use Amplitube 5 a lot, T-Racks Distrexxor and Fabfilter ProQ and Relab lx480 and some more

Here is a video about Pianoteq's morphing

I should take a closer look at Pianoteq 7, I obviously used morphing too little and not effective enough. Thanks for sharing.
Do you use random button or do you choose instruments by yourself to make your morph presets?

Roland FA-06, Roland JX-03 and Zenology Pro in Cubase Elements 11.
Sometimes i only use (Roland FA-06 and the JX-03) since the FA-06 has a great and easy to use Sequencer.
