Mound of Wires (Factory Sound Bank / Thor Patches / Bass)
The THOR polysonic synth is probably my favorite overall. Namely, the "Mound of Wires" patch and the "Talkbox Bass" patch.
MELSTRINGS (Factory Sound Bank / NN19 Sampler Patches / )
"MELSTRINGS.smp" is a killer string synth. That particular patch is all over the new record right now. It has a great motown/hip hop vibe.
Eau de Neon (Factory Sound Bank / Malström Patches / Rhythmic)
The Malstrom has all the best arpeggiated/sequenced patches. Some of the rhythms are really inventive like the "Eau de Neon" patch.
RhodesMk1Mute (Factory Sound Bank / ALL Instrument Patches / Piano and Keyboard / Electric Piano)
The NN-19 is the best where emulation is concerned. The best would be the rhodes patches. "RhodesMk1Mute.smp" and "RhodesMk1Trem.smp."
Custom Redrum Patch (Factory Sound Bank / Redrum Drum Kits / xclusive drums-sorted)
I use the same redrum patches for almost everything we program. My kick: "bd_dubfire." My snare: "sd2_vintage." In fact, almost all of the "vintage" drum samples are key. Oftentimes, I pair "sd2_vintage" with "sd_tresor." I love that 80's snare sound with a lot of release. Manipulating the length and pitch of these samples can get you really neat tones also.
