Your Favorite Instrument Plugins/Libraries of all time?

Which are YOUR Favorite Instrument Plugins/Libraries of all time?
And more importantly why? :slight_smile:

Here are my personal favorites:

Omnisphere by Spectrasonics
My go to plugin for all things “synth” or “sound design”. I have chosen to truly master this plugin, ever since I got it in 2009, and the features and depth of this engine is incredible.

Keyscape by Spectrasonics
I have over 20 piano plugins and libraries, but the quality, consistency, depth and sound shaping capabilities of Keyscape is above and beyond anything else. And the Keyscape Creative library is such a lovely bonus, full of instant inspiration.

Afflatus Strings by Strezov Sampling
Lovely expressive and rich tone, lots of variation, amazing playability, and great advanced features like polyphonic legato, switchable divisi, dynamic ensemble variation from velocity, ensemble section mixer etc.

Forzo Modern Brass by Heavyocity
Bold and powerful tone, with very deep sound design capabilities, and an inspiring interface with lots of features. I find this particularly good for it’s short note and accented articulations (rhythmic brass).

Damage by Heavyocity
I have used this processed cinematic percussion library for so many years, and even though I got soooo many newer percussion libraries, I seem to always go back to this beast of hits, impacts, and powerful percussion.


Eastwest Hollywood Diamond string sections!

Hated by most, beaten by none!

They have a set of “powerful system” patches, and I now have a powerful system—so I started using them, and yep, it’s better. These strings STILL can’t be beat! Convince me I’m wrong!

I also love CineSamples everything for the recording quality.
