Addonis as some mentioned Native Instruments sell a bundle of synths taken from reaktor but without the need to do all the construction. I thought they sounded amazing for Techno and electro music and would have thought you would have this bundle already. Im sure they are used by many techno produce...

Its hardly the deal of the century and really isnt worth the bother at all because you could find it cheaper from a shop. I think Ableton are generally a bit stingy on the freebies and deals maybe it will change in the future.?
