u-he zebra 2 is a good workhorse synth with good configurability, modularity and good sound.

still sh!t though!

Reaktor is probably the best but would be too much too soon really.

There was one a few years back which was based on the nord lead. I can't remember the name but as you're familiar with nords it might be good.
