Q.1 Top favourite synth plugins / Kontakt libraries
Answer: Nexus, Serum, Sylenth1, Kontakt, Ableton Live Sampler
1. reFX Nexus 3 Although Nexus is sold as a synth, it’s a hell of a “Super Sampler”. We love it ‘cause it has a great variety of different sound styles and they come almost ready to use, already with great sound processing.
2. Xfer Serum I think Serum is the name of the new generation of synths. The sound quality is insane and we love the native FX section. For sure one of the synths that we use the most.
3. LennarDigital Sylenth1 One of the most famous synths in EDM. We still love it because of the easy interface to work on and for the classic sounds!
4. Native Instruments Kontakt (Session Guitarist – Strummed Acoustic) We’ve been using this library for some years now… the best Guitar sound with some pretty cool playing styles.
4. Ableton Live Sampler This one can’t be out of the list, especially nowadays that we have so many good quality sample shots available.
Q.2. Top favourite Effects/Mixing/Mastering Plugins

2. Ableton Live or Xfer OTT Also super useful for getting a big & fat sound. Super simple to use and we’ve been using a lot lately.
3. Nicky Romero Kickstart Sidechain is one of the most ……………
