During an interview, Thomas Bangalter mentions his fondness for Ableton's Operator synth: While Daft Punk record analog synths for thick melodies and lead lines, they're also fans of Ableton's built-in synthesizer. "Operator is one of the best soft synths out there, and I hate soft synths in general," says Bangalter. "It's great because it's got its own thing, it's not trying to emulate this or that." He adds: "Also, plug-in delay compensation in milliseconds is great. Live is getting better and better with each version."more
Operator is an fm/subtractive synth that is possibly the most useful synth to ever be created. You can use it to make leads/808s/kicks whatever. This one is awesome.
Great sounding plugin with a quick workflow. At the moment I'm using it for leads, chords and basses, but there is a lot of deep functions to dive in more. It works only in Ableton, but it doesn't bother me, as that is my main application for music making.
Okay Operator is like your friend! In my opinion it's as good as some of the big name brands like Massive and Nexus. It also includes a white noise system for the airy transitions!
I personaly found Operator to be simple and straight forward. I Understood the basics of it when i first opened it and use it when i want to quickly make a simple FM Bass insted of opening FM8 or Sytrus if im on FL
