Any recommendations on a VST plugin for EBM?

any help would be great thanks.
I know it's not the cheapest but Massive should take care of most "synth needs".
If you need free though, Togu Audio has some cool synths that do very decent bassline sounds.
TAL - Togu Audio Line: Products
TAL-Bassline and TAL-Elek7ro are good synths.
Making old school basslines though is not about what you use. It is how you use it. If your synth is too much "acid", you are using single layer waveforms and too much resonance. Try layering different waveforms an octave apart. Try layering in white or pink noise and keep that attack sharp and bumpy. Acid uses glide/portamento. EBM is sharper, more defined.
Another tip. Do not focus on melodies in your bassline. Not at first anyhow. The idea in the beginning is to get a bass sound and your drums to be cohesive and effective. Get a strong bar going, and then build it from there. Surgical ideas. Do not always add new stuff. Sometimes cut things away and see how the overall texture changes.
