Post by Lawrence11 » Sat Jan 04, 2020 9:37 am

Oh man ive got gas worse than ever right now... (God that sounds funny : :o :o :o :o :o ))

Or mabye ive got SAS? I dont know lol

Anywho im looking to pick up some a few more VSTi and a drum sampler to play around with in live, any i was just curious to get your guyses opponion on a couple of things.

Native Instruments Essentials (Pro 53, Absynth etc)

Ive also been looking into the M-Audio G force future retro pack (Ya know its got imposcar and minimoogV etc)

One other one is the Korg legacy pack with the MS-20 controller.

Also... Is Native Komplete really worth it if i can get a somewhat decent price on it?

Which one do you guys think I should go for? Why? Let me know ladies and gents!

the 'essentials' packaging with Pro53 hasn't been available for years... i'd make very sure its a legit copy.

G-Force Minimonsta was my introduction to subtractive synthesis. I've pretty much dropped out of the VST world entirely at this point, but it's a damn solid piece of software. If that also has their Mellotron VST, double the recommendation.

1. NI Komplete. Buy direct from NI. Maybe wait for the next sale.
2. Arturia V Collection. Not sure if you've missed the sale.

Alternatively, just use Logic Pro. It comes with a fantastic package of synths and effects.
