Bryan’s Top 5 Favorite Software Instruments

Today Bryan is going to show you his top 5 software instruments.

In this video Bryan will walk you through some of his favorite software instruments and how he likes to use them!

Summary from video

1. Native Instruments Massive

This is a classic software instrument I have used for over 10 years now. It has a HUGE feature set and even almost 15 years after its release, it is still one of the most widely used software instruments on the market. This is one of my go-to software instruments for almost any kind of synthesizer patch I need.

 2. Roland Cloud Juno 106

This is a recent acquisition for me, but it is now my #1 go-to soft synth. As a previous hardware Juno 106 owner, I know this synth inside and out. This software version of it is a spot on amazing recreation. I had so many issues with both Juno 106s I owned. Voice chips going out, preset battery dying, etc. When I owned mine they were going for less than $500, now they go for WAY more than they’re worth. I highly recommend this software version whether you have a hardware version or not.

 3. Arturia Prophet V

This is one of my all time favorite hardware synthesizers. Arturia did an amazing job recreating it. You can create so many classic sounds with this soft synth. IF you don’t have it, go get it!

 4. Native Instruments Monark

This is the best Moog Model D recreation I’ve heard. It is phat and funky just like the original. It is very affordable so go get it!

5. Soniccouture Pan Drums

If you love pan drums, then you will absolutely love this software instrument. Amazing sound quality and features for days. Check it out!
