I've always wanted to implement synths into my songs as a nice touch, but was never able to get something that sounded good. I used the library of instruments that came with Xpand 2 with Pro Tools 8 LE. I wrote the midi in Guitar Pro 5, but that's not the problem.

I try to get sounds like in Carrot Rope by Pavement or Time to Pretend by MGMT.

I guess what I'm asking is, what are the best VST instruments/packages for this type of thing? Or maybe I already have something suitable and need only alter it.

Thanks for any replies.

Well i make drum 'n bass and electronica and the main synths i use are Reason 4 and Togu Audio line 'Tal-Bassline' (which is free online) but your best bet is to actually try and learn the basics of subtractive synthesis and then you can do alot lot more with what you've already got.

if you want something good that isn't really expensive, try Greenoak Crystal, which is a really good free VSTi.

subtractive synthesis is the most basic type currently in use, if you want complicated, get into scanned synthesis or frequency modulation synthesis.
