    Hello experts,

    I´m going to buy a VI synth bass. Which one do you recommend?

    I really like the square like raw violent sound of david guetta's love is gone (the synth that plays alone around minute 1)


    Thank you!

    My favorite "Virtual Analogue" synth at the moment is FabFilter Twin2. Its not the most complex synth in my collection, but the oscillators and filters are superb, and the interface is such a pleasure to use that I can program sounds from scratch in the heat of a writing session without losing any creative momentum:

    Their simpler "One" synth is also very useful: once I have layered a few instances and added a few extra LFOs using my host automation it doesn't really sound so simple anymore!

    I should declare in interest as I make video tutorials for FabFilter (including a couple covering Twin2: part 1 & part 2) but I actually bought both those synths before I made the videos. ;)

    Another VA I've been hearing lots of good things about is ACE, but I've not tried it yet: http://www.acesynth.com/

    If you want something more specifically bass oriented you could look at Trillian:

    This does a lot more than just VA synthesis, but its more expensive. I don't have this one either, but Spectrasonics have a great reputation and I'm sure its very good.

    I own the Spectrasonics Trilogy and I am quite pleased with the sounds and versatility.
    Trillian includes all of those sounds and features a lot more.
    I will upgrade to Trillian in a few days...
    Watch the demo videos for it on Spectrasonic's page. It is awesome...

    reFX Nexus and reFX Vanguard do a pretty good job.

    Get the Korg Legacy Collection... think its only 200dlrs for like 5 different synths and they sound awesome. think you can buy them individually now... Korg PolySix its the one i always use.
