Q.1 Top favourite synth plugins / Kontakt libraries

 Answer: Serum, Native Instruments Reaktor, Ableton Sampler, Sylenth1,Nexus 2 and Arturia analog synth emulations

1. Kontakt Spitfire’s Collection for it’s orchestral libraries



2. Operator(Ableton stock plugin) for any kind of fm synthesis and basic shaping (subs/sines, sawtooth etc)



3. Serum for synths with more complex movements. Still use basic shapes but I go deeper in with filters and envelopes.



4. Albino 3 for the old time sake, love the spread knob it really gives you a tone no other synth does.



5. Ableton Stock Sampler, I used to resample in Kontakt but switched to sampler and created a few racks for extra modulations. I resample most of my synths there.



6. Kick 2, for any kick or snare bottom layer. Pretty much all my drum punches will be made in there synthetically with sines and I always add a lil textured layer from something acoustic on top.



Q.2. Top favourite Effects/Mixing/Mastering Plugins

Answer: UAD, NI RC48, Fabfilter & more

1. UAD Ocean Way, it’s a mic and room emulator. I love to use that to fake a room or recording. It helps when your sounds are too clean and you want to give them a ‘sampled’ or shitty room effect. It adds lots of warmth to your sound or recording.



2. UAD EMT 140 Reverb, NI RC48 Reverb for pretty much all my reverberations.




3. Fabfilter collection, for most mixing tools from EQ to limiters.
