    Mate, Logic Pro is FULL of fantastic instruments. The EXS24 factory samples are outstanding and have you covered for all your organic instruments (as well as pads). The ES2 is quite a lovely synth as well. I'd recommend getting to know Logic's plugs prior to investing in 3rd party plugs.

    However, if you insist on jumping right into some 3rd party plugs:

    For free ones, look no further than TAL. This guy makes some absolutely incredible free synths that rival many paid ones.

    For synths that cost $, I'd advise to use this forum's search engine as there are many threads discussing members' go-to synths.

    Cheers.

    Gotcha. Ya, TAL is a good starting point. Personally, my go-to's are:
    • Massive
    • Reaktor
    • Predator
    • Albino
    • FM8
    • Kontakt

    Cheers.

    I currently have Native Instruments Massive, FM8, Nexus, Ableton's stock plugins, z3ta, Reaktor, and some other little freebie VSTi's.

    Have you ever thought about creating your own pads and shit using Logics plug ins?

    It's much more cost effective than buying synths and patches.

    You can make some pretty sweet pads by just filtering sampled sounds in weird ways. The EVOC 20 filters are just amazing for making pads and atmospheres. Check them out mate, else I'm quite satisfied with massive and es2 for all sorts of sounds :>

    This. The EXS24's modulation matrix looks stupidly complex, but it's easy to get the hang of with a bit of trial and error. Ditto with regards to the ES2 & Massive.

    Nice! Glad to hear it man. ES2 is really quite expansive and full of loads of potential.

    Cheers.

    glad this is starting to work out for you! the logic stuff doesn't sound that amazing if you just scroll through the presets. its ALL ABOUT what you can learn to do with the synths, and Logics are as high quality as most $$$ versions...
