daHornet, possibly.

Most freeware synths and FX make the cut for me, unless they're highly experimental on purpose and not just glitchy due to poor programming.

overly priced basic in terms of useability and sound desighn (yea its easy to use and to get to grips with but thats it theres no learning curve with that synth and it just seems to go on toward making nothing but sounds for dance music thats it it has no multi genre purpose) Plus its been raped to death to the point now i can here it in tracks and pin point it out automatically and therefore lacks any sort of inspiration for me to use it.

Yeah..thanks..I get what you mean..it is kinda old I guess at this stage, though I've never used it myself, so I've no experience with it. Nearly bought it earlier this year..glad I didn't though, as I would have been rightly pissed to find it so limited after all the hot reviews I read about it.

Re: Worst VSTI and VST you ever had

I think I'm lucky in that I read a lot of reviews and look around here before I get something, so I don't really have a lot of experience with bad vsts. That said, I've gotten some that I just don't like, and I think the biggest disappointment for me was Tone2 Rayblaster. I wanted to like it, learn it, and use it to do really unique stuff, but I just couldn't wrap my head around it.I remember watching the preview video, thinking that it sounded cool, and figuring I could learn how to do stuff like that from presets. I couldn't, and I could never figure out how to get the sound I wanted out of it. I moved on and use Harmor now when I want to get experimental.

Same here
Genesis by famous sound designer, can't learn that synths
In some russian boards(forums) people said that this synth is alternative to Vanguard

Re: Worst VSTI and VST you ever had

The worst one was a freeware synth that had a neon pink GUI and I can't even remember its name (haven't found it when googling it, because I want to try it again). It had no parameter names and it was just a random mess. Usually I like these kinds of concepts (tweaking and listening, instead of "looking at the sound"), but this one just sucked.
I will try to find it again.

Re: Worst VSTI and VST you ever had

about syletn 1... I like to hate on it for fun, but..

I do think it sounds kind of special. it really does sit well in a mix. It has a "lively" sound. That said, fuck that synth. It has so many limitations that are freaking ridiculous for a soft synth. You can't even control envelope amount with velocity.. yea.. wtf. Among many other things.

I don't think that it has to be a dance synth tho.. you have to be very careful with the unison if you want to avoid that, i.e. low detune amounts.

Oh that's easy. Any vst developed not knowing "don't allow keyboard focus" in FL is a thing. Lol.

Looking through my VST folders, there's nothing in there right now that I don't like and use. Hmmm... Will have to think about this one.
