In a reddit AMA from November 2014, Lazy Rich is asked about his favorite synths. He replies, "Been really getting into Spire recently (thanks to Jon), it takes a bit more effort to EQ it but you get a big fat sound very easily. Been using it for my next couple of tracks so you'll hear the results soon!"

Deli Mag: Is there an electronic instrument (real or virtual) that left its mark on this record more than others? Olga Bell: Spire! I read about Spire on some random forum, bought it (it was kind of a splurge), and went right for the big-room house presets, tweaking them until they became lovable and awkward. My favorite was a preset called “Guetta Bitch”, a stepper that appears in the middle of “Randomness”.more
"I use Ableton Suite 9 currently. Large range of synthesizers, favourites include IL Harmor, Roy Papen's Blue 2, Adam Szabo JP6K, Serum, Spire, and of course Massive. As for processing I use Fab Filter Pro-Q 2 as my primary equalizer, Camel Audio Camelcrusher and Sugarbytes WOW for distortion, iZotope RX2 and Ozone 6 suites for various purposes, Valhalla shimmer for reverb along with Room and Ubermod for spatializing. Oh and BazzISM and Drumatic for creating drum samples And thanks to Eoin (Noisestorm) I just started using oxford transmod for transient modification."more
Great sound, great synth, great people behind it! It has a very crisp yet warm tone to it that is fitting for electronic and includes some great filter types, onboard effects, and presets. Its a bit of a CPU hog though, so be careful when trying to run multiple instances.
Good ol Spire. My first plugin that used to be all the influences behind my previous work as a Glitch-Hop / Drum & Bass music producer. The plugin is very versatile in making different and unique sounds that work together and overall not being to CPU intensive when running or rendering out.
The plugin itself is a bit outdated with Spire and Massive being the two stealing most of the limelight nowadays, however i feel that if Reveal Sound were to release a major update for Spire in order to compete with the two mainstage plugins they would have to do something amazing with the features, inputs and display of the plugin.
This is one of my favorite VST Synthesizers. It's super easy to use and understand, and you can get a really great sound really fast. What I love most about this synth is the sound quality. It sounds just as good as hardware synthesizers! No joke.
This syhthesizer is sounding unique and full. I chosed it over Serum even tho i was aware that Serum has higher sound design potential the warm and clean sound of Spire made me to go with it. Spire filters are amazing in my opinion and you have several choices in this regard (for example virus ti emulation, TB-303 emulation, comb and others). The effects are not bad and i often use them along with external ones. I like the x-comp section which is a good way to add quick multiband compression on your designed sound. The oscillators give you really a lot of possibilities to shape the sound. Its not possible to inject custom wavetables like in Serum but you can chose from included ones and with possibility to FM and hard FM you can get some really interesting sound design patches. This synthesizer is great for Leads, agressive Basslines and lush pads. I recommend it definitely.
This is a solid buy right here. It's unique in its own way and has a lot of interesting sounds. Although it's diverse it does appeal to certain genres more than others. I don't use Spire often but when I do its usually for a good reason
I'm going to keep this short. This Spire's DEMO beat Sylenth1's demo and Serum's demo (in my opinion!) If you want to get this plugin, you won't be let down. Designing presets in this plugin is amazing, as well as the interface! Consider buying this if you don't already have it !
