Hi, @echoestudio! My favorite plugins:

  • For everything related to sound synthesis — only Serum.
  • For delicate saturation — Fab Filter Saturn.
  • I love the plug-ins from Sound Toys — Echo Boy is just the coolest delay, for hard saturation I use Decapitator.
  • Another cool thing — the WOW2 from Sugar Bytes. It can be used to create a huge variety of electronic sounds.

What’s up @echoestudio
In every project I load NI Kontakt. I think this is one of the supreme plug-in (of course if you have good libraries). But for good libs you need a lot of space.
If I need cool realistic bass I usually use Omnisphere. But this plug-in good not only for bass.
And of course Sylenth1 and Serum ))

I use Addictive Drums for drums, LASS for strings, Piano in Blue for piano, Omnisphere 2 for synths, Scarbee P bass for electric bass and Premier upright for acoustic bass. With many exceptions and alternatives of course :slight_smile:

Recently Soundtoys shared Tremolator. Love it! :sunglasses:

Best drum samples are EastWest ProDrummer. Here’s an example of a track with ProDrummer:

100% agree with you @KickTracks
:grinning: Sylenth is the best synth vsti I know of.

For synth : “Sylenth 1” !
For piano : "Emotional piano"
For strings : "LA scoring strings"
For guitar and bass : I don’t know, i play guitars… :wink:

Good day :slight_smile:

Hey! Maybe not the best instruments but they are free)

Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2 is absolutely awesome.

Thank you for all replies. I think im gonna buy komplete 11 :slight_smile:

This was my last attempt to upload but rejected. Reason is mix, mastering and samples.

Does this track sound too “midi” ? I used L.A strings. Cause that doesnt sound midi to me.
