    they got some freeware that runs standalone and should be good, I own the Pentagon and Z3ta+ which are amazing. If you dont have a VST/Direct X host yet your going to need something that runs standalone.

    Mac/Apple is a little different, Logic has now converted to Audio Units or something. I really don't know that much about Macs but try here:

    All the synths are under virtual instruments, you'd have to look into which ones run standalone.
