Have a look for a few decent modular synths if you are into that thing.
Try Komplete 7 if you havent got it.
Absynth is better than sliced bread

Absynth is the fucking cat's meow! I love it, it's really confusing to get into at first but once you understand the basics, you'll realize what a joy it is to work with! It even comes with a FUCKING HUGE bank of presets for if you just want a quick sound, especially after the most recent update in which they've included 2 banks that you previously had to pay for. It can run as an effect mode too!

/advert

I'd also recommend you try PSP VintageWarmer, it sounds amazing (and is at the top of my xmas list) and you'll see a lot of the big producers using it in their masterclass vids.

I don't have a serious list of stuff that I've purchased, just a handful of plugs, don't underestimate the power of freeware plugs either. Sometimes you can be surprised!

Yes it is, it runs in Reaktor Player, the draw back is that you can't save patches interally to Reaktor. However you are using Logic so you can save the patch to Logics patch list (sneaky workaround!).

Razor also comes highly reccomended, but to be honest I don't really use it for basses all that much (which is what most people buy it for?)

+1 for fabfilter, pro q is the best thing ever, izotope alloy is also a great plug, a multitude of functions with it, i particularly like the multi-band compression on it, great for your drums bus!

If you have the dollar id say get urself the new NI Damage plugin, looks pretty damn sick. 30GB of percussion samples is always a good thing.

arts acoustic reverb !

+1 for fab filter
+1 for psp vintage warmer

all depends on the style youre doing tho aswell. and for camelphat, i only really like the distortion and you can get that in the free version aswell, so check out that.

and for a compressor, check out bootsys stuff, its free&very good!

Native Instruments Vintage Compressors perhaps? Audio demos on their site sound good.

Another great free compressor is Audio Damage Rough Rider! No numbers on the dials so you are forced to use your ears, careful though, it can squash your signal to nothing.

NI's Massive.

I know NI had a 50% cyber monday deal, so they may have a "last minute" special, perhaps hold off on buying for another week or two.

Of course I was a bit pissed after hearing about the sale considering I purchased it at full price...but I digress–it's worth every penny.

Also, I'd consider upgrading to Logic 9 as well, but that's just IMO.

Cheers.
