Recently, I’ve stated that, at the moment the best tool is Nexus.
Maybe it’s not the best VST but it surely is the most accessible.
I will give you some material just to prove that Nexus can be used to create hits, and most of the presets that come with Nexus have been used in many commercial songs.
I have a lot of friends that use Nexus, most of them as the primary VST.
The large amount of sounds that you can find in it’s sound banks is another advantage.
I believe that those sounds can be used in various genres of music, genres like dance, hip-hop, electro, pop, etc.
