    I liked using the spectrasonic's stuff & the Ohm Force stuff.

    My favorite VSTs are Massive, z3ta+, Rock, Triangle II, Junglist & Absynth.
    I cant think of any to stay away from but there are loads of freebies that i have downloaded and never used coz they were shit.
    PEACE!

    mine and billys latest tune has no plugs at all, except a peakcontroller and a free filter.
    we do it all with outboard gear and cooledit. this is a setup weve arrived at after long and careful consideration.

    if youve got cooledit and fruityloops with its native plugs you dont need much, but here are a few really good ones, all free:

    Audiodamage Rough Rider compressor
    SiR impulse reverb
    Puncher or Bittersweet
    TLA 2029 (dont remember the exact name, but its free) maximizer
    Analogic Delay

    Recently acquired Massive, liking it very much so far. Also been using Bojo Impulse (free) for years now for simple sine subs or even more complex basses when having multiple instances of it. Effects vary, a shitload of free b-class vst's.

    Hey, new to the forum!
    I use Albino3, Massive and Linplug Octopus.
    Also use a variety of effect vsts, ableton comes with a good set of eq and delay options.
    A frequency analyzer is important to have too.

    This sounds interesting, do you have audio somewhere? And what about that E-MU sampler you got, i tried asking you about on DOA but that got lost in bitspace... Is that emu sound really worth the trouble of learning a HW sampler? And would you happen to know about emu software filters and such compared to the real thing?

    future audio workshop circle - not quite massive, but the cracked versions don't fuck up. strange little soft synth, although you can get some fat sounds if you have the patience.

    I have loads of instruments and effects, mainly downloaded illegally or from Computer Music Magazine where you can get a shit load of free plug ins and great advise on producing esspecially for DnB. Last issue they had Brookes Bros going thru how they made "tear you down" which is one of my favourite promos in my box at the min. I use alot of sampling in my productions so when it comes to effect plug ins i use all the standard ones included in Cubase aswell as CM Studio effects also in sound processing. I also use Adobe Audition when it comes to processing sounds. My favourite eva effect plug in though has got to be Celemony Melodyne, its the sickest ever sample and audio processing plug in ive ever used. I use ut al the time and its soooo easy to clock. The GUI for editing, pitch shifting, quantizing and moving individual hits of samples in real time is genius and helps me alot when incorperating non Dnb speed samples into my shit.

    Fav VST Instruments:
    Massive (obviously)
    Electra Bass Rack CM (amazing easy to use bass synth with bare presets)
    Genesis CM
    Reason 4

    Fav Effect Plugins:
    Celemony Melodyne Plugin
    Freq Analyst CM
    VST Dynamics
    CM Fuzz

    Massive all the way, Korg legacy collection, And the new Native Instruments Komplete 5 has everything you'll ever need, take a peek;

    http://www.native-instruments.com/index.php?id=komplete5

    Battery 3 once you've mastered it on good production software is really handy. If your good with creating your own drum rhythms that is, and dont prefer using pre made samples.

    And its only >$1200 :eek:
