Definitely FM8, Serum, DIVA (demo version, gonna buy it soon !).

I use Operator here and there, but I'm starting to gravitate towards FM8 for my FM needs. Experimenting with making sub-basses with FM8 since I'm super used to doing them in Operator.

My upcoming song 'Infinitum' is basically all Sylenth1! It's my favorite synth at the moment.

Massive 100%, i literally use it for almost everything. i like it mainly because of the endless modulation possibilities and options you have.

i also really like using kontakt and reaktor, both are super awesome. you can really find some amazing libraries out there for kontakt

sylenth1 is okay but kind of boring tbh, i can do everything in massive that i can in sylenth for the most part in terms of end product

im also a huge fan of hamor for re sampling and mangling.

Synplant is also REAAAALLLYYY cool for weird ass sounds in a really weird unique way. i only used the trial and didn't really get a lot of time with it but i loved it.

im all about about the tunes, nothing more.

My favorite synths are Serum, Spire, and Dune 2. Dune 2 in particular sounds great but uses barely any CPU.

Lately, I've been using Serum for a bunch of my sounds, and sylenth1 here and there.
I don't dress like a douche. I'm not swole af. Just trying to make music.

serum and polyplex are probably my most used.
but does anyone else have an issue with serum making high pitched noises sometimes?
like after you open an old file with serum on it in ableton, it will clip and make a super loud pitch?

+1 to this. I just purchased it and I like it more than Sylenth, I also have Massive, and Serum.
