Free plugins!


i started adding these to the OP. the list is old so some are not available any more.
i have to leave for work so i will continue later. once ive done that huge list i will continue to add other replies and add some of my own.
thanks again for the list.


Acustica Audio - Ceil

vst x64 / aas64 / Nebula 4

Not a bad addition


Oh, I have to pick that up for sure. I still use RED eq and the TAN compressor on just about every track.


Nice! Thanks for the heads up


This thing is a little on the amateur side (not the most fancy), but I feel like it’s worth sharing. used this little diddy for all my string tuning when prepping a recording. It’s spot on.


Every time the topic of tuning a guitar pops up, I feel a necessity to point to how Eric Johnson tunes his.

He tunes the G string perfectly on pitch, and tunes every other string by playing G’s using the open G as a reference (3dr fret on the low E, 10th on the A etc). It’s brilliant to do it this way because by doing so, you compensate for small imperfections of the intonation caused by imperfect (no such thing as perfection) saddle adjustment, action height, fret wear etc…

70 FREE VST PLUGINS ( Compressor, Equalizer, Synthesizer, Recording Vsts, e.t.c ) (FOR MY FRIENDS)

finally finished sorting through and getting up all the links provided by @TvMcC.
i will move on to the rest soon, but need a break!


definitely need to add dexed, since it is a free nearly perfect emulator of the DX7 line:
Woody did a nice comparison here:
Also +1 to the Full Bucket stuff, I like the Korg series emulations they did
Also to the esoteric but still awesome Firebird2 that TvMcC mentioned. One of my very first synths.


thanks for the suggestions. i will get them on the list asap


#parricide thanks for sorting it out! Once the holidays are over I’ll gather more for the community.


PaulXStretch - Go make that ambient album, pretty advanced tool
Soundmagic Spectral - Spectral blurring, tracing, bin selecting, etc, optional envelope control


Everybody loves paulstretch. Im really grateful that its free, but he could definitely get away with charging for it


Hello there. I’ve just received this in my Feedly and I’d really want to share.
by Bedroom Producer

Visit the blog to find out !!!


thanks for the addition. ive got a few days off work so hopefully i will be able to get all the shared links so far on the OP


Has some really nice plugins, I’m already using 4 of these more or less regularly: ModulAir, Youlean Loudness Meter (older version though), Temper and - of course - Dumpster Fire by the crazy guys at Freakshow Industries ^^


Yeah Temper is great, tried it last night. Can make some really grungy, analog-ish basses with this non-linear distortion.


Hey, I have got a couple of links for you all to try. I am not sure if it’s gonna be interesting but anyways…


4 Octave VIBES VST/AU Plugin

One of my favs that I realize is not on the list:


image not found

TAL-Filter-2 is a host synced filter module with different filter types, panorama and volume modulation possibilities. The device includes all 4x oversampled TAL-NoiseMaker filters: LP 24 dB, LP 18dB, LP 12dB, LP 6dB, HP 12 dB, BP 12dB, N 12 dB. Its possible to saturate / distort the input signal by raising the input volume with the input control (only if you use a filter as modulation type).
Its also possible to modulate the panorama or volume of an incoming signal. This can be used for tremolo or trance gate effects. Panorama modulation maybe is useful to pan your percussion, hats or sound effects in the stereo room for more interesting rythms and sounds.


Looks good, like a simplified free version of LFOtool or Filtershaper.


Didn’t know this version till recently, just the more basic ones

Soundmagic Spectral is totally fucking up my Ableton now, starting at a part of a track for the 5th time… Ableton gets so angry with it, it even kills save files…
