Q.1 Top favourite synth plugins / Kontakt libraries
Answer: Serum, Native Instruments Reaktor, Ableton Sampler, Sylenth1,Nexus 2 and Arturai analog synth emulations
1. Serum: to do anything I need, faster than any other synths
2. Native Instruments Reaktor: to build all I need like a modular analog synth, this plugin helped me a lot to learn and understand what synthesis is, and how to really create synth from scratch.
3. Ableton Sampler, not a real synth like the previous one, but I can do everything I want when I need to transform an audio file into a completely different sound, it’s one of the most underrated Ableton stock plugins.
4. LennarDigital Sylenth1 and ReFX Nexus 2 (now 3), only because I have a lot of old projects with some sounds from this, and it is always good to have it when I need a certain synth or when I’m lazy to search or create one on Serum.
5. The last Arturia analog synths emulation bundle, when I need a certain sound from a certain analog synth, I know I’ll find it there.
Q.2. Top favourite Effects/Mixing/Mastering Plugins
Answer: Ableton Stock Plugins, Fabfilter, UAD & more
1. Ableton Stock Plugins, I build a lot of Audio Rack to create my own effects and lot of the time you do not need a third party plugin for specific tasks
2. Fabfilter Bundle, especially the Pro-Q3, Pro-MB and Pro-L2. For the simplicity and quality of these plugins.
3. UAD Audio, I love a lot of the UAD plugins but if I needed to keep only a few, it would be the Pultec & API EQs, the SSL G Compressor, Empirical Labs Distressor.
