    I don't have Logic, but i do have GarageBand since i have mac, the plug-ins have to be in AU format (audio unit) Oddly enough most AUs are only effects. But there is a converter for converting VST to AU out there, just google it and it'll come right up.

    I use Reason for instruments, the Thor synthesizer is considered one of the most powerful synths, with three oscillators, three routable filters, 2 LFO, step sequencer, velocity changes, mod/pitch wheels, automate/remote override anything, too many to type.

    There's nothing wrong with logics built in plugs! ES2 and ESX24 have some amazing sounds out of the box! Also, all your garaband plugs will appear in logic, so check those out too.
