First my two Favorite VST/AU plugins

  1. 1.Behringer's VST 3/AU synth is now available called "Vintage". They are taking donations for the Playing For Change Foundation. It's a cool plugin or standalone. I have already spent hours playing it. Link

2.Vital is a great soft synth for EDM music. It is used widely by producers of Psytrance. They also have a paid version. Link

Here is a list of 10 others. Go to the link at the bottom for 225 Free VST/AU plugins.
