yes ive done it.to be honest if you have superior synths use them.its a futile excercise to write music based on money.

people write awesome stuff with free synths and peple write awesome stuff with expensive synths.

use your best sounding synths,free or otherwise

Ohm Force Symptohm Melohman PE

This one sounds very well-suited for Electro. Some very aggressive tones and leads.

That Melohman octave preset-morphing is the coolest thing I've ever seen.

How do you open these VST's? They invlove a lot of moving folders, and I haven't the slightest on where to go.

Anyone willing to just point out something I'm missing?

This sounds like a dirty mellotron.


http://www.soundiron.com/instruments...phonautograms/

Welcome to Soundiron’s Phonautograms library!

This vocal sample-based “instrument” was created by cutting, editing and programming a selection of the earliest known sound recordings, as restored by the non-profit group First Sounds. This original method of recording, called ‘Phonautography’ was invented in the early 1850s, by French inventor Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville. The sounds were captured by projecting the voice and other sounds into a cylindrical horn attached to a stylus, which in transfered the vibration into lines over the surface of oil lamp soot-blackened sheets of paper.

They had been preserved by the archives of the French Academy of Sciences (Académie des sciences de l’Institut de France). One of First Sounds’ founders, David Giovannoni, tells us that “the Academy is the institution whose stone walls have preserved these magnificent documents through social upheavals, political revolutions, world wars, and other disturbances since Scott’s deposit of Gamme de la Voix in 1861 — just five years short of the bicentennial of the Academy’s founding in 1666.”

Essentially, these recordings were purely optical and no device existed which could translate the recorded acoustic information back into sound, until the First Sounds organization acquired the preserved papers in France and brought them to scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley, who devised a method of scanning and deciphering the images.

Awesome free emulation of the Ensoniq-ESQ-1 (the battery will never die on you ) Plenty of patches for it over at KVR.

The sounds is awesome and very close to the original synth , the only problem is that this is not actively maintained and I don't think you can use midi to control the parameters.

Those plugins aren't free. This thread is for free plugins. Hence the title.

You're really, really in the wrong forum if you are looking to steal software.

I went on the hunt for a basic sampler, just something to bring samples into and hit the keyboard without a fistfuckfest of fucntions, came up with Helios:

Helios sampler etc.

It even has a teddybear on the gui if you are into that shit.

More sampling gold, this time in the flavour of ancient Akai:

Akaizer

It's not a plugin, but a simple program that can do nothing but give that Akai timestretch sound. I'm giving it 10/10.

Check out the stillwell stuff, they're the plugs made by the guys who made Reaper, really good compressors and eq's, they're not free but they don't limit the use so potentially you could use them as much as you like, only a five second nag screen

Soundtoys are giving away a plugin called Microshift

https://www.soundtoys.com/sxsw2013/&rc=393-0122-587

Little MicroShift is anything but little. It adds massive width, enormous depth, and huge thickness to vocals, guitars, synths, whatever. Emulating three of the most sought after micro pitch-shifting sounds from two of the all time classic pieces of gear that made the technique famous (including one our designers created "wink"), Little MicroShift puts them right at your fingertips. All you have to do is find a code and this little slice of studio sweet sauce is yours.

Pretty cool, and they're getting around to releasing 64bit versions of the plugins (CANNOT WAIT)

just a note on these plugs. I recommended them to some people, apparently they had some other cracked brainworx plugins and they stopped working after these were installed. So be careful. Seems that some developers are releasing these useful free plugins with code to attack they're cracked versions on your computers.

again, I can't say for sure, but I told someone about the Solo plugin and they're others stopped working.
