Underrated vsts, synths, and gear


#1

To me an underrated vst is fls Peak controller…it can be used to create rhythmic fx triggers and modulations…

So what gear, vsts, synths do you think are/is underrated?


#2

Soundgoodizer from FL Studio is a very simple yet surprisingly effective way to bring life to not-so-lively drums. I do use it quite a bit.

I have never used Peak Controller - there’s few FL Studio plugins I actually use. I’ll have to look into it!


#3

FL Studio native plugins are pretty decent. Time based fx not so much but a lot of other cool stuff. Wave shaper, blood overdrive, peak controller…


#4

Remember when ppl were hating on others for using the stock plug-ins… when the ppl hating were the ones that dropped 1k ohmcide and other third party vst plug-ins cause they were fancy…

Lmao when ppl thought they needed massive to make dubstep…and they didnt…lol.


#5

Yea, I do remember the bougie shit for a minute.

The funny thing about Massive and Dubstep is that it was really all FM8 and a little bit of Absynth if you came from DnB. And even then…yea…there was probably something free you could use too…


#6

Alchemy…the gui could be better but its coolz


#7

I finally lost all my Alchemy files and can’t install it anymore. Defo miss it.


#8

You talking about the original Alchemy or the more recent Apple spawn?


#9

old one…wasnt aware of apple spawn


#10

Yeah…the original Camel Audio version was and still is the best, imo. Apple bought them out a few years back and acquired Alchemy in the process…or was it the other way around? :wink:

Wish I could get my hands on some of the old preset packs they used to offer…I bought some, but never got the chance to grab others I wanted to get before they went offline. Still using that synth a lot.

Ableton’s Multiband Dynamics

I only wish it had a 4th band.


#12

Ableton seems to have the most very usable native tools.


#13

I see lots of people dissing the MicroFreak, mostly because of the keyboard, but it’s my secret sauce.


#14

I just saw a lot of random MicroFreak hate this week. Wasn’t sure what that was about since it seems to be pretty popular. I feel like hating on keys on inexpensive synths is low hanging fruit.
