some of my favorites now:

waves (ssl and qclone)
tritone digital (hydratone)
soundtoys (all of them)
sony oxford (dynamics/transmod/rev).
GML (eq)
TL (master meter)

not sure if these are all available in RTAS but i think so. maybe TL master meter isn't.

PS don't do much mastering.

I was quite impressed by the McDSP MC200 plug-in. Sounds great and
seems to be very versatile.

You might wanna check out Massey's stuff. He has free demo downloads available, and I think his plugins are great! He has a new mastering limiter on there. I know there is an issue with the other plugins displaying properly in 16bit color mode...dunno if that's fixed or not yet, but the Limiter works fine!

My favorite plug-ins for RTAS (Native):

1. Sonalksis SV-315 Compressor & SV-517 Equalizer ($400)
2. Chandler Limited EMI TG12413 Limiter ($400)
3. Audio Ease Altiverb 5 Convolution Reverb ($500)
4. SoundToys Native Effects Bundle ($400)
5. Waves SSL 4000 Native Console-Emulating Bundle ($700)
6. URS Classic Console Compressors & Equalizers ($750)
7. Antares Auto-Tune 4 Pitch-Correction Plug-In ($300)

I can accomplish just about anything with these tools!!

Cheers,
J.D.

I'll second Massey's plug-ins, I ended up purchasing all of them. Apparently he used to work for Trillium Lane and Digidesign.

All of his plugs are great. The demos are unlimited time as well. I haven't experienced any problems with display but I don't run in 16 bit mode either...

that's easy

The Behringer MULTICOM PRO-XL MDX4600 plug-in.

Emulates it perfectly. Must have.

Well I did say you forced people to point out the fact that you couldn't contribute anything but a lame ass attempt at a joke.

1. compressor/limitor/EQ for Vocal
I still stick to outboard here. Run it out again and again until you get what you want. This tends to be the focus, so I try to hold back no expense or effort. I still suck anyways! Outside of this I would say McDSP CB 1 or 2 and RenComp have worked for me. This and any decent HP/LP filter plugs. On vox I tend to use filters over any other eq method.
2. compressor/limitor/EQ for drums
Until I got a 384, I was getting good results in the drum buss w/ McDSP CB1 set with a slow attack and quick release (50-70ms/50-100ms). It was nice and spanky. Lots of filters here as well. The McDSP stuff again for the most part.
3. compressor/limitor/EQ for mastering
If I do this in the box I tend to start with Ren, then MC2000, then BF Pultec, then ???, then L2(dither). Yeah, I know...that is all wrong, and most of the time I end up removing all but 1 or 2 of the items.


Good luck!

Stop being a whiney princess. If you're done then stop responding. You're annoying and pointless.

I know I'm bumping an old thread here, but jeez...I stumbled upon this whilst looking for some plug in suggestions, and instead find a thread ruined by pointless flaming by the likes of Jonboy79 - people like you ruin great forums like these! You're a complete t**t - having a go at someone for making a joke? What an a*****e
