We're compiling the best Holiday 2016 music gear deals. See them here.
Here's a list of most of the additional plugins and things that I generally use in my production: Waves Gold bundle (an awesome set of mixing plugins) Waves TransX (my favorite transient shaper plugin) EWQL Symphonic Orchestra Gold EWQL Stormdrum 2 Olympus Symphonic Choir (Kontakt 5 library) Addictive Drums Serum Massive Absynth 5 Razormore
I don't really use this synth all that much compared to Hive. I wasn't actually planning on using it at all. However, it absolutely shines on Dubstep and styles that demand a more digital style that simply is impossible on a subtractive synth. Plus, the keys and bells are crystal clear and layer wonderfully on top of a fuller, analog bottom :).
Not to mention a lesser(?) known use of Razor is that it makes for AWESOME vocoders! :D
It can only cover so much, but it has it's place!
