Airwindows just put out busscolors, which is their premiere analog saturation plugin. I wasn't terribly impressed by the youtube demo at subtle settings (right at the top of the page if you follow the link), but it seemed to behave well at more extreme settings. The really interesting thing, however, is that this is calibrated such that you can drop it in where you would have console channel as part of the console mixing system if you leave the output and wet/dry mix alone. Then, you get the summing and inter-channel play of console interacting with your choice of distortion as well, all in one plugin. That has my interest piqued. Any fans of console should definitely check this one out.

I got a chance to put this into a WIP last night, replacing each instance of console channel with an instance of busscolors. It makes a noticeable difference, and the first impression is very good, much better at subtle settings than I thought based on the youtube demo. Dark doesn't do much, but I like steel and lush quite a bit. I imagine punch will do great things for basslines or drum tracks (haven't gotten it on those yet). Rock seemed the most standard of the distortion models.

Yo the Mac thread link in the opening post is not working :/

Also ask.audio recently posted a couple of lists of top free FX and synth/sampler plugins

ask.audio/articles/52-free-audio-effect-plugins-for-musicians-and-producers

Lots of great stuff in here. Almost makes you wonder why anyone buys any software at all!

Just so you know, this thread is a place to post / recommend individual free vsts..not really meant to be posting links to other lists on other sites. Basically, there are many sites out there that list free vsts..what we're interested in here is the ones you have tried yourself or heard about that you think are good..for whatever reason.

We can all find lists elsewhere..but it's the feedback from other members here that makes all the difference in the end.

is another free drum plugin but this one's a sampler. It is only one drum kit so it kind of seems like overkill to give it away as a plugin rather than just a sampler instrument but they have thrown a few interesting things in there that you couldn't do if it was a sampler instrument so I guess that's why. What I'm talking about it the database of MIDI drum loops it has loaded into it, and even has an arranger which you can then drag and drop straight into your DAW. Seems neat for people who don't like to program their own drums and want a realistic sounding 'rock' kit but that doesn't interest me so I've just been using it for the sounds, which are pretty nice! It's been multisampled very nicely so it does add a live feel and eliminate some roboticness from rigid drum loops.

Give them a whirl, won't cost you a penny eh!

Cheers..thanks for those. I honestly hadn't heard of MiniSpillage..sad to see it's only for Mac users though.

As for the MT PD kit..yeah, have that already and have to agree with everything you said here about it. It's certainly a handy one to have all the same.

That's the thing..maybe we need to split these into a couple of different threads..Windows..Mac..and Linux. I know there are other formats, but these are the main OSs out there and it might be better if there was a VST list for each, rather than lumping them all in together.

That way it would be a lot easier to find what's relevant to you personally. I'm using the word YOU here generally, though it would obviously also apply to you personally, too.

Honestly, I don't think it's a big issue. I'm used to sifting through to see what is available for mac. It's the price we have to pay for access to Logic and a tidier OS, but let's not get into that debate.

I'd rather have one big thread that's active really, I guess there used to be a mac thread but it went inactive for too long?

I recently discovered Xfer's OTT, it's pretty similar to Ableton's multiband compressor but it's free and available for all other DAWs. It's simple, but sounds really good.

I have really mixed feelings about this plugin and upward compression in general. It does make things big indeed. Someone on the old dubstepforum.com described it as a "The Magic Awesomizer" and tbh I think that's pretty accurate. In the EDM scene, there's plenty of long time big names who swear by upward compression and use it on everything plus might even drop one on the master.

While I'd like to think that "you can do the same shit with anything else blablabla", not a single one of the other freebie compressors I've ever used has the same "value" as Xfer OTT (like if you were to imagine a reasonable price tag on it based on how big the difference between the starting sound and the processed sound is). Except maybe TDR Nova, but that's because it's a dynamic EQ and there aren't many free ones of the kind on the market.

trying not to derail the thread, but i wanted to point out that upward compression does not necessarily mean things have to get louder, just as downward compression does not mean things have to get quieter. it is just another way of shaping the sound, if it is necessary to use upward compression to get the result you need then upward compression should be used.
