Although you will always hear analog lovers decry them for the unforgivable sin of being in the box, the truth is that the power and functionality of synth plugins far surpass most hardware units out there. Throw in the fact that they’re far cheaper and don’t take up any space in your living room, and it’s easy to see why most producers have an arsenal of soft synth power to unleash in their tracks.
Perhaps your only real enemy when it comes to synth plugins is choice, as there’s quite an array of options available to you when it comes to purchasing time. Wavetable, virtual analog models, FM, modular, additive and subtractive synths – it can be hard to know where to begin, especially when you consider there’s a range of price points within each category.
In this article, PB have gone through the best synths in every price category, from the freebies all the way up to the big guns.
