Speaking of that, I really wish VB3 would go x64, I'd probably buy it tonight. I HATE "vintage organs" in kontakt But, I'm x64 to stay........

Doesn't the vst bridge cut it there?

True that the bridge in reap is awesome and has served me well, but I've made my decision that it's time to be x64, or be left behind. My bad? Maybe, but this is 2012.......I think considering it's most certainly not a "fad" it's time to catch up

That rationale is personal, so I won't quarrel. I do not see the sense in denying yourself access to a plugin that thanks to technology provisioned in Reaper 64, can be used transparently. Cutting off your B3 to spite your face, so to speak...

Would it be fair to say then that I don't feel like dealing with the extra window stuff with the x86 bridge??

Again, x64.......all of my other plugs have gone x64 and I don't own it yet. I'm not cutting anything off because I don't own it. Was just saying that it's something that could come in handy IF is was x64.

At least we agree it sound very nice

I did some sessions with Mike LeDonne (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_LeDonne), and he turned me on to VB3. The fact is, it is so good, that having to use some sort of bridging technology to access it's goodness is a small price to pay in terms of convenience.

Awesome question

Z3TA 2
Drummatix Metal
ReaSamplomatic5000
ReaEQ
Reaverb

Z2 gets me any synth sound I can want, Bass included. I really like the Jupiter 8 more but Z2 is damn close and far more versatile D also has lots of onboard FX that are quite useable.

Drummatix Metal is simple and VERY versatile Drum VST - Yes it will do electronica. Spend the $30 and be amazed.

ReaSamp covers that territory/Sample whatever I need from Z2/Drummatix

EQ/Verb pretty much staples.

Anything else is just gravy. (And I do like gravy...

I cannot confine to just 5 plugins, sorry.

But those that I find the absolute staples of my workflow, and from which I simply cannot part, are (in no special order):


Pianoteq
Kontakt
Zebra 2
VAZ Modular
Reaktor
OLGA
Elektrostudio pack
Synth1
SQ8L
VB3
Korg Legacy Collections
Addictive Drums
TAL and Bootsy effects


But hey, I'm upgrading to Komplete 8 now (spring deal, $299, simply cannot pass that up!) so even that will become a staple then.

I love the theory behind this thread, because I have recently "cleaned house" on my studio PC. But 5? I have 3 hard-drives and do a huge diversity of projects. I don't have thousands of plugins (anymore.... blush), but I do have over 100. Believe it or not they all get used at one time or another. I used to practice Zen meditation (and pure analog audio) and was very serious about simplifying my life, but as I dive deeper and deeper into 100% ITB digital audio, I have learned that I can be guilt free and have many tools that are useful. Especially in a faltering economy (I live in the US) where audio is not an easy way to pay bills. Cool thread though, makes people reevaluate what they have and do or don't need.

Well, I think this would be a LOT better and not as limiting thread if you were to name 5 instrument and 5 effect plugins...

Totally agreed. I don't use instrument plugs, so I'm at a distinct advantage.

ReaEQ (i forget who makes this, but it's good)
Rough Rider (Audio Damage)
M30 EQ (TC)
Inspector (RNDigital)
Ozone 5 Maximizer (iZotope)

This would have been harder a few months ago, before I moved to a computer that can't use my ancient PCI-slot UAD cards. I have a bunch of good plugs for them. I still miss the de-essor.

At the moment these are pretty core to my music making set up (plus a nord micro-modular):

Short circuit
Reaktor
Reverberate
Ohmicide
Bionic delay

And JS time-delay (to compensate for latency!)

Reverberate is such a wonderful gem. It's gone up a bit though since I got mine (another x64 leader they are!)

I just got up the courage to start exploring Reaktor for the first time over the past few days (I've had it since Komplete 5). What an amazing piece of software - the user library contributions can keep me busy for several lifetimes.

I like the idea of having only 5... making the most of minimal tech, though I'll never actually do that, heh. But I think it inspires creativity to have technical limitations like that.

Great post. I'll play, but I've got to separate the eq/comp plugs from instruments:
Plugs:
1. TG Mastering Pack (everything I need in an eq)
2. Breeze Reverb
3. Nomad Factory LM-662 (it doesn't sound like a Fairchild, but I like it)
4. Waves Kramer MPX tape sim
5. Ozone

Instruments:
1. G10 Goya Nylon Guitar (from 1964, not a crappy Martin-built Goya)
2. Martin HD-28V
3. Clinton 1908 Upright Piano sample set (Kontakt based)
4. Addictive Drums
5. Fender Jazz Bass

It was tough to choose on the instrument side of things. I would definitely miss having my electric guitars, but I've got my lead guitarist to lean on for that.

Cheers.
