The FREE plugins thread!
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
