i've got the 1973 as an AU and love it. doesn't get as much used as it used to as i've gone more towards the DDMF 6144 and Focusrite Midnight EQ. I still use the Stillwell Vibe EQ a lot, it's a great colour EQ.

I just got the 1973 as an AU and I'm still getting used to it but so far I really like it!

Also Lepou Amp sims are amazing VST/AU

and I've been getting some good results with the Audio Damage "Rough Rider" compressor (especially on kick and snare).

I haven't quite gelled with the Ignite Amp sims yet, but I think they're TS-999 overdrive sim is really useful.

Also since you can't talk about Amp sims without talking about IRs
I really like the Kalthallen IRs. They're free and they sound great.

Limiter 6 is pretty deep! - just been checking it out... really like it... the M/S multiband options are cool for creative limiting effects

Must admit I can't hear what the HF limiter is doing

I wish the comp section had "more traditional" controls like threshold and makeup gain... Mind you it is great that you can swap the order of comp and lim

VOS plug ins.
Baxter - Lovely
Density MKIII - Amazing what the colour knob does.
Boot EQ - Excellent Eq

Voxengo
MSED, plus they have a lot of very good free plug-ins. Good for A/B comparison stereo widening.

Vlad Limiter6 - Best free limiter I've ever used.

Not free, but needs mentioning because of how cheap and how good it is, Toneboosters Barricade.

- not my goto reverb (I use Valhallah), but it has a certain sound that I occasionally prefer.

TDR Compressor
TDR Feedback Compressor | Tokyo Dawn Records
Free compressor made by a member of FutureProducers forum, moses. Dude's made a seriously good compressor that he needs to start chargin for lol. I like it on my vocal busses, but it's great for anything. Has some nice features... one in particular where u can listen to just the compressed portion of the sound. Pretty dope.
If you are using the Stillwell for free (the GUI versions) then you need to know that the free part is an eval time, on an honor system. Pay for them if you love them!

Glad you mentioned that. MAGIC on my kick drums. Set it to either 60hz or 110.... add a few DB... cut the same DB away from the bassline. GOOD LORD... my kicks have never shined as much. It's one of the very few times I ever use the EQ to add DBs.... i'm usually more of a subjection kinda guy.

Also.. It's really easy to fix problems in the mids w/ the 1973.

Whatever Q curve they used in creating this plug... they got it right. It's very musical.

Don't tell me what to do


Mine are paid for now of course. But unlimited free trial = okay to mention in a "free plugs" thread.

Yeah it is a very good sounding, easy to dial in eq,
altho' I ended up not using it anymore, replaced it with BootEq MKII
and here's a suggestion (if you didn't know it already):
BootEq on kick, "Subbass Boost" preset
(obviously a starting point, but very lil tweak is needed most of the times).
No other plugin eq sound that good, at any price.

Endorphin VST. 2 fixed bands stereo compressor with soft drive control, opto or vca settings, and the possibility to compress the mono or stereo info in the stereo channel. It also has a m/s mixer as well as the two band mixer. Very soft and versatile.
