Sometimes, but not always. There’s some shit out there, but there’s some good free shit out there, too.
yeah, lots of great stuff out there for zero dollars. Cases in point: Melda Free bundle, Kontakt player, anything at all from Tokyo Dawn, Full Bucket stuff and the pretty cool sound collections from Spitfire audio.
Some are, however, free because they suck on toast.
This one is crazy - a completely free and very flexible MPE synth. And I just read that Roger Linn even created a bank of sounds for it, optimized for the LinnStrument:
A lot of them are, but sometimes great companies make freeware so that people can get an idea of what to expect from their paid plugins. Some developers also enter KVR’s developer challenge, or send stuff to Synthtopia and other production focused websites and offer free stuff as a way to get their name out there.
There’s a lot of sifting through crap if you just google ‘free plugins’ if you wanna find the good stuff, so this thread is a great resource imo.
Always forget to mention this one also. Library grows month by month.
Although not extensive, there’s some useful sounds and flexibility.

2CAudio freebie one of my favourite reverb devs. Offering vector. Nothing ground breaking but worth a look as spatial is their speciality.
Thanks for good stuff
