Q.1 Top Favorite Kontakt Synth Plugins/Libraries

Responnse: Serum, Native Instruments Reaktor, Ableton Sampler, Sylenth1, Nexus 2 and Arturia analog synth emulations

1. Collection of Kontakt Spitfires for its orchestral libraries

2. Operator (Ableton stock plugin) for all kinds of fm synthesis and basic shaping (subs/sines, sawtooth, etc.)

3. Serum for synths with more complex movements. I still use basic shapes but go deeper with filters and envelopes.

4. Albino 3 for the good old days, I love the spread knob, it really gives you a tone that no other synth does.

know more

5. Ableton Stock Sampler, I used to resample in Kontakt but switched to the sampler and created a few racks for additional modulations. I resample most of my synths there.

6. Kick 2, for any bass drum or snare drum bottom layer. Almost all of my drum punches will be made there synthetically with sine and I always add a little textured layer from something acoustic on top of it.

Q.2. Top favorite effects/mixing/mastering plugins

Responnse: UAD, NI RC48, Fabfilter and more

1. UAD Ocean Way, it is a microphone and room emulator. I love using it to simulate a room or a recording. This helps when your sounds are too clean and you want to give them a “sampled” or crappy room effect. It adds a lot of warmth to your sound or recording.

2. UAD EMT 140 Reverb, NI RC48 Reverb for just about all my reverbs.

know more

3. Fabfilter collection, for most mixing tools, from EQ to limiters.
