A few I've used here and there:

Futucraft Kairatune (subtractive monosynth)

Hinton & Fairchild FMetal (simple FM)

Full Bucket Nabla (string machine emulation)

Full Bucket Scrooo (formant filter synth)

and more specialized:

Plogue Alter/Ego (voice synth, but good for lots of abstract weirdness)

Saltline Drzewo Korzenie (kick and clap synths)

Not any free romplers out there that I know of Andre. The closest was probably Air Expander2 which was just $1 recently over the summer but I see the price is back up to normal now. You can pick up a good hardware rompler module pretty cheap on your local craigslist, reverb, and Ebay ie The Roland JV series, etc. But I think most people these days are using there Kontakt carte blanche.

Anyone knows of a Korg Trinity (first edition, not V3), or Alesis QS8 vi?
