Best Software Synth For Electronic Type Sounds And Dreamy type

I'm looking to buy a new software synth with eletronic type sounds and the "dreamy" pad type sounds. I've been told Omnisphere and Titan are good, any suggestions on other or better ones? Thanks

I am looking at FM 8.. and two others but I'm unsure if they're RTAS.
Does anyone know is z3ta or Rapture by Cakewalk work w/ protools?

Omnisphere sux!! Most sounds are either too cheesy or too complex, they take too long to load and the organization is ******** IMO. Blue by Rob Papen and believe it or not Xpand I've found are really good.

Someone said omnisphere sucks? Lmaoaoo24524131324142453oaoaoaoao

Ok, Dreamy landscapes? Sytrus

Seriously.

For Ni, it would have to be the Fm8, and not massive..i tend to think of massive more so bass and lead and SY then pads..i dunno why

And gladiator, probally, if you looking for the gates and arps and trance joints.

Nexus is just one of those we dont speak of.

Rapture and FM8 are probably your best bets

I appreciate all of the help! Unfortunately most of your suggestions aren't RTAS synths but FM8 and Rapture are so I decided on those.

Strange, this was exactly what I was going to post. Nexus has a lot of heavily processed "dreamy" sounding presets for pads, pianos, etc. In my opinion, the presets are a little too processed, but they give you a good idea of what's possible. Sylenth1 has a great sound as well. Firebird and Gladiator have a very heavy sound to them which I love, although the presets have been over used in my opinion by Timbo and Danja. (just listen to Kerri Hilsons album and you will hear 80% of the Gladiator and Firebird presets...)
