As far as synths go, Bazille and Ableton's Operator have pretty much replaced the rest of my synth collection. If I had access to infinite processing power, I would probably stop using Operator as well.
z3ta+2 is really interesting for harsh electronic dubstep/electro sounds though. I've always thought it has been the synth Massive tried to be, though it really suffers from less-than-optimal user interface.
I'm looking for the most sharpest digital synths (vsti)
I've heard of Symplant, and I'm not a fan of massive.
I'm looking for a Mega Digital Synth - A Synth that can make some stupid crazy sounds.
Let me know what you guys know of!
Lets make some banging music!!!
Z3ta+2, Gladiator 2, are two that come to mind. Lots of freeware synths have a sharper character than the high end plugins (High end plugins try to emulate hardware most often, which means stronger low and mid freq). I would check out some of the freeware wavetable and multi-osc synths.
If you want crazy sounds I think distortion is also something you will need to have options with.

I've just started using Serum and it blew me away.
Not only does it sound really bold, you can also really amp and model the hell out of it. It is actually harder to make something subtle with it than the other way around. The graphic nature of the wavetable, LFO, and envelope is also very instructive - in case that may interest anyone. It is very intuitive.
Techno starts with a capital 'T', as in TB-303 and TR-808.
Harmor has a lot to offer. Working with the harmonizer in particular can get some pretty harsh sounds. Seamlessr uses it a lot, you can check his youtube tutorials for examples. Of course, he's also working with Serum now, and, judging by the responses here, I'd say it's a safe bet too.
