The Free Plugins Thread!!!!

15 posts in this topic

This is my blood sweat and tears from that other forum - you know, the one I moderate. Be nice to see some of you cunts over there raising the tone of the place a bit from time to time too.  8)

So I've put together a list of some of the freeware plugs that I use here and there as well as a couple of lists where you can find HUNDREDS of freebies ranging from outstanding to totally strange...

I've always said that if some people spent as much time learning their VSTs as they did trying to get the lastes warez their music would be much nicer Here's a chance to not just get some unusual and lesser known sounds, but save some money and learn a whole new bunch of things - for free!

Please add to this list and I encourage y'all to get stuck into checking some of this stuff out.

So presenting: The freeware plugs list! (now with some semblance of formatting!)

I find my free plugs through these sites:

Testimonial

After purchasing your mixing and mastering tools, and others. My product has improved significantly. I was having trouble getting airplay before because of sonic reasons. As stated in previous correspondence if has been a financial hardship but the rewards are starting to pay off, perhaps because I own them I have a little more pride in my work. After a couple more purchases I will be using Voxengo exclusively

Stumbled across this...

Audio Software - A collection of the best free Audio Software

http://audiosoftware.blogspot.com/

Nicely laid out, and from what I understand is in ongoing development/updating. Looks like it still needs a tweak as click on "Mac - Audio Editors" came up empty, whereas a quick scroll down to "Categories" (at the bottom of the page) provides the direct links.
