    I myself use Massive for all of my basslines. Both for the drops and for the "verses" and evrywhere else!

    I would like to hear what you guys do use, discuss the ups and downs of the diffrent plugins!

    Go! :D

    Mostly ES2, sometimes either TAL noisemaker or U-No-62 and very occasionally fm8.

    Operator, fattness, although its not a complete sound like Massive (doesnt include FX), its filters and Waveforms are awsome

    I find myself using Logic's ES2 and EFM a lot for my bass needs, although I will occasionally roll out another plugin if I need a to create a sound with a bit different character.

    I actually really like the sound from Rob Papen's Predator for my bass sounds. Although sometimes I'll use Massive too, but as a rule it's Predator

    Still using massive but im actually gettin so sick of its sound!
    You can tell it a mile off (imo) recently started using vanguard for synths and will eventually use it for bass but i havent found anythin as easy/versitile as massive to use.

    3xosc for simple sub bass. RP:Blue for more in depth stuff. Wasp XT for Plucks. Sytrus for whatever needs some vitamin c.

    Any free "teasing effects" to add before the drop to create more hype?

    ES2 then lot of resampling.
    I tend to make pad sounds then manipulate them into lead sounds
