One of my passions for a very long time has been recording. Just today, I was thinking about some great little VST plugins that are true jewels that everyone should check out. Not only have I used these on numerous occasions, but they are actually free! I'm going to list some obvious choices, but I am also going to list some that you may have never heard of before. In no particular order, here they are:
1. Variety of Sound:
Every one of these guy's plugins are super great. If you haven't heard of them yet, you are missing out!
2. de la Mancha:
I discovered de la Mancha effects a while back, and I was super impressed. Allot of these are out of the ordinary, while others are very practical.
3. The Genuine Soundware Watkat:
I absolutely love this echo/delay. One look, and you'll know what it is emulating (or at least, you should know).
4. Tokyo Dawn Labs:
Pretty cool sounding plugins. Allot of recording professionals use these, and best of all, they are free.
5. No list is complete without mentioning The Fish Fillets:
I have especially used the compressor and the de-esser on countless occasions!
6. Anwida DX Reverb Lite:
This is a cool little reverb I have used from time to time. Very smooth verb with very little CPU overhead.
These guys have a ton of cool & free VST effects, but my favorite is "Field." You must download it to see what it can do!
8. Dasample Glaceverb:
Every now and then, this reverb really hits the spot. It has a tone all its own - a definite must hear!
9. Izotope Vinyl:
No list would be complete without mentioning this plugin. Super fun.
There are literally hundreds more that I could recommend, but these above will keep you busy for a while! Much love everyone!
