=== Runner-ups ===

Here you find plugins that where on the list but are replaced by other plugins. Also, as above is 'my list', a place to add plugins that I don't use myself but several participants in this topic have suggested as being a good choice/solution.

--- Instruments ---

- Kx-PolyM-CSE: CS70M emulation (sound-wise, not the frontpanel), pretty good for free - http://kx77free.free.fr/English-page-vst.html
- Triple Cheese: Great synth for more digital sounds (a bit like FM), but check for alternative skins - http://www.u-he.com/cms/triple-cheese
- Superwave P8: for that analogue-ish pads and string sounds - http://www.superwavesynths.co.uk/product_p8.htm
- Analog Warfare: for that little bit of difference - http://www.amvst.com/node/15
- Odo DoubleSix: because I really want an FM-synth in my kit - http://www.odosynths.com/ (don't get the XXL-version, it looks great but it has audio problems)
- Crystal: the free alternative for Absynth, not my thing but a very deep synth - http://www.greenoak.com/crystal/about.html
- Atlantis: another big 3 osc monster. I don't like the sound much but some swear by it - http://jeremyevers.com/?page_id=15
- Hahaha CS33: just to good to pass on, great for leads, basses and what not - http://pethu.se/music/instruments.html
- Logana: in the same realm as CS33 but with a different approach - http://sarvst.110mb.com/SAR%20VSTs/Page2.html (scroll down)
- AM Additive Table Synth: a digital sounding instrument to balance out all the VA's - http://www.amvst.com/node/19
- Adonis: Very big synth, used to be payware - http://www.vstplanet.com/Instruments...rs9.htm#Adonis
- Rumpelrausch AZR3: for the more gritty organ stuff - http://untermkittel.de/rumpelrausch/?PLUGINS
- MinimogueLuxus: a minimoog clone, still the free one to beat in this area - http://www.home.no/gunnare/
- Lallapalooza: another one of the best SE-synths, sounds great - http://www.dee-pro.sakura.ne.jp/buzz.../LPLL_v201.zip
- Xhip: another one of the great oldtimers, very good filter - http://xhip.cjb.net/xhip/
- massTurboTAR: very raw sounding synth with a unique morphing system - http://www.kvraudio.com/developer_ch...09.php#dc09_35
- Voyager: A real big 4 osc synth, great sound. NOTE: skinned version has some issues in Reaper - http://www.aodix.com/products.html

- Tal NoiseMaker: many people regard this one as very good, a little heavy on CPU though - http://kunz.corrupt.ch/products/tal-noisemaker
- Tyrell N6 - Top of the line free VA-synth, but a little heavy on CPU - http://www.u-he.com/cms/tyrelln6
- Charlatan: arguably one of the best sounding free VA-synths available right now - http://www.blaukraut.info/
- MauSynth: this one has been flying under the radar for some time, incredible good sound - http://rinki.net/pekka/mausynth/

--- Effects ---
