    Hey guys and gals,

    Don't know if anyone here is into this sort of stuff, but I thought I'd ask.

    I just picked up a freekin killer software studio set up ..... Including:
    1) Ableton Live 4.0.4
    2) Native Instruments - Absynth 3.0
    3) Native instruments - Kontakt 1.5
    4) Native Instruments - Reaktor 4.0

    so that's like.......$2000US


    My question is..........

    I'm looking for a really Dirty analog-style software synth to do some screamin Jungle midlines....... If anyone knows the Access Virus B....well, like that one....but software (that does not require Powercore plugin).

    Any companies I should be looking at? Any free VSTi's out there that are close to what I'm looking for?

    Thanks.

    Simply because I really didn't need the versitility that a costly protools setup would offer. For D&B, techno, trance ect. Majority of the time you are working with loops, in the digital domain, which Live enables me to do. Live is nothing like Acid though. Acid is a piece of crap.
    Even if I went with the small M-Box/Protools LE setup, I would still be in the same predicament that I'm in now.....finding a good analog style synth. Live, like pro tools, is simply a sequencer, a place to arrange songs.
    I also chose live because of the implementation of VSTi's (all my NI plugins) and it's real-time time-stretching capabilities. Cool shit.

    Bittorrent is your friend. Go get them all for free.

    Pro Tools is not a synth its a recording program. Check out Reason 2.5,
    I bet it will have what you are looking for and its a great program.

    I have been using Reason since it came out as version 0.5 Beta. In all honesty, it is a cool little program to write in, but is plagued with horrible sound and crappy effects. I pushed the limits of that program long ago...unfortunately. Thats why I'm going for professional stuff now. I've cut a few of my tracks to dubplate that were created in Reason, and it's just not worth throwing away the $80/plate anymore. Thanks anyway though.....I didn't think anyone would even reply to this.

    Anyways, I found one after searching a bunch of sites, forums...took me a while. For anyone who is interested, it's by a company called REFX, and it's named "Vanguard". www.refx.com I'll see how it sounds.

    Peace.
