Have you checked out meldaproductions? If you search mwaveshaper, the meldaproductions site has Their products and they look mad handy, the waveshaper will be the first that I get They have mad free devices :) worth looking into I suppose, what are some must haves in your opinion?

When I did research on wiggle and even other vsts, kvr seems to be the place to go in reguards to user experience:) i tend to look at what people say there, as well as the ask audio reviews and computer music mag, those reviews never really mention downsides, I mean sure they mention pros and cons but I have yet to find one that really says anything negative :p still helpful though

i dunno really the ones i have are the free ones i like ( oh yeah forgot camel audio alchemy cm player not free but if you get the computer music mag ) barring xln audios addictive keys upright which sounds way better than id8 for me

all i have
vst wise
TDR NOVA EQ
camel audio camel crusher
camel audio alchemy
togo audio vocoder
zplane vieklang cm
xln audio addictive keys upright
i have essentials though

and im trying to be minimal i may not be the best source of advice .

I've even removed my skrock Solaris and aurora rack extensions if i could sell i would .

the refills i own are bitword expanse wave front( reason bass and drums) and that is it i had more , but dumped them annoyed half of the combinations don't work in essentials

the vocoder and the zplane thing AND the TDR nova i got because i don't have reasons stock vocoder analysed eq and pitch correct respectively, because essentials don't have them.
Alchemy player cm is the only semi free vsti i like out of everything i've tried, apart from the uhe ones they have good presets podolski etc find them somewhere here or on magazines https://www.u-he.com/cms/ , i decided not to install them as i dont wanna have too many synths, scrolling through thousands of presets is something i don't enjoy lol , good luck searching mate enjoy the headachce

You should be glad that you're not addicted to VSTs and have GAS (gear acquisition syndrome). Perfectly good to stick with REs and Refills.

I'm more interested in the big VSTs Kontakt, Spire, U-HE etc.. Most of my FX Plugs are covered by RE's which I think do an even nice job. I have ton's of others but won't install most to keep things less cluttered and focus on what I will actually use.

For me its about Spire VST, Vegence, maybe other helpfull VSTs I cant see myself going crazy getting loads of VSTs. I jumped on the last Propellerhead sale and got the Rig 2 mixing mastering bundle, that was crazy to not go for it being that some of these in the bundle are avalible as VSTs I got 22 racks with training for £123 thats a good buy for me this year. Spire and Vengence are the best synths iv heard so far, but spire has the edge for its simplicity yet whole sound. Before coming to Reason I was a Avid Cubase user for many years so iv been on the vst hunt a while ago, got it out y system so to speak, and to be honnest I produced more music when I had less gear.

The waves Piano sounds great, but load times way to long.

Hi bunja 1979 the vocoder you spoke of(toto line audio vocoder), i installed it but it doesn't work in internal mode,it appears in the FX list so it can't receive midi, i did get it working by routing thor into right input and a vocal track into left input,
