My music style is the combination of the genres that I love. I have a strong rock and metal background and most of the times my main focus is on electric guitar.

What are your favorite VST / Synths or programs in general to use when producing your music?
I love and use Studio One as my DAW. I mostly try to make natural and organic sounds but my favourite VSTs are Omnisphere, Serum and Arturia synths which are amazing.
