any synths that sounds like its from the 80s, there are quite a lot of them out there for free, but there is so much shit out there its nearly impossible to know what to get. but i did a thread on DOA about 80s sounding vsts and got quite a few good replies, here ill go see if i can find it

doa is down right now. im sure youll find your way though. its all about resampling anyway.

big man with your biggest stabs. show and prove hot shot! and yes predator is bloody amazing. nothing on the freeware side even comes close. but like i said with a little resampling you can come a long way

I just use Sytrus or 3xosc for everything.
Hit shit up with some drive, a little delay and a fat filter and you're good to go.

I agree with Kama, anything by rob papen is solid gold in my opinion. Predator for the synth stabs and leads, albino 3 for the monster basses and blue for some nice ambience

can i add on a question..?

is there such a thing as a free mac VST host that i could run massive etc in?

reason user innit.

there are standalone vsts hosts, i specifically remember toby (of toby plugs or similar) writing one (pluggo i think it was?) but i have no idea if they got it for mac, id be shocked if they even had notepad for mac tbh
but from what i understand you can use a wrapper in logic on a mac, to run vsts, as it were.

Ok, Z3ta is ok, but why the hell would you want to use that, when you have the likes of Massive, Albino and Predator! Personally I think any three of those synths are better than Z3ta........although that is only my opinion.........
