I tried Massive X recently and found that it is really great for this purpose. The phase modulation, wavefold, lots of modulation possibilities and also great sound add up to complex timbres similar to complex oscillator modules I mentioned before.

What about BEAP on MAX/MSP?

Serum or Vital etc. can do FM, PM, wavetables, windowed sync etc.
True, I mean there are actually plenty of fully-featured synths that fit the bill. Zebra II, Massive, Massive X, Pigments... I am sure there are more. Question is, will one use them in the same way? I’ve realized many of the instruments I use are theoretically capable of producing the same sounds, however unless I make it an exercise I’d never do it. Different interfaces, different sounds.
This should be repeated over and over. The synth's UI is as important as the sound, IMO. There are no "neutral" interfaces, they all guide you in some direction or another.

For example, I have a handful of complex software synths that can get into this ballpark (from Madrona Labs, Newfangled Audio, modosc, U-He, etc.) but in general, I prefer to use my modular that has a variety of complex oscillators (even when it would be more practical to use plug-ins.)
