I went through a similar search, looking for a broad range of sounds. What I wound up with, and like a LOT, is Arturia's Analog Lab 3. It's not on sale at the moment, so $149 might be a bit steep for you. Even a full price, I think it's worth the money.

You get patches from every Arturia synth, and each one has a few well-chosen parameters that are modifiable and mappable.

If you're wanting to MAKE sounds and not design sounds, Analog Lab is really hard to beat.

The standalone version is good for songwriting. Also comes as VST2 and VST3.

The browser is EXCELLENT!
