Free plug-ins: anyone got a list?

Just curious. Is there any easy resource or website that would steer you towards free or cheap (including experimental, psychedelic or just plain fun) plug-ins. Preferably AU, but also VST and RTAS.

Does anyone have any cool links to share in this regard?

You can try looking at kvraudio.com. Huge listing of plugins and virtual instruments, probably more VSTs than AUs though.

For free RTAS plugs go over to the DUC and do a search for the user Simon666 he has a huge thread detailing all the free RTAS plug-ins there are out there.

There is a serious amount of free RTAS now (some of which are brilliant btw) compared to the situation 2 or 3 years ago when there was a grand total of 2 freebies.

Izotope Vinyl is pretty cool. I've used it on a couple 'artsy' songs. It's worth trying out.

Hi Guys,

My favourite free VST instrument is :


the Delay Lama

Get it at www.audionerdz.com

But be sure to make your 'Free Tibet' donations though

Cheers, Julian

Hi Renie,

the best RTAS freebies as far as I am concerned are:-
  • Inspector. I can't live without this plug-in. Ideal alongside Maxim for doing quick 'masters' of your output.
  • Plugsound FREE brilliant for adding a few (very good) sample patches to your computer. Far more stable than Sampletank FREE (another free RTAS) in my experience.
  • I find the 1176 and the phase correlation plug included with the Free Bomb Factory Plug-ins to be very useful. I also have call to use the clip remover from time to time but have never got it to work. But everyone knows about these don't they?
  • Frohmage is fun. I find it sounds better than Prosoniq North Pole which is also free for RTAS.
  • There are loads and loads of free Pluggos available (see Simon's DUC thread). I have found that loading your machine up with every single one causes serious stability issues so if I had to reccomend just one it would, without doubt, be Gleetchplug. Just brilliant brilliant and very usable & stable plug-ins (including an automatable theremin!). I would like to use the stereo spread plug on my master fader but have found that is not transparent enough. Hopefully Todor is working on it though.

Another vote for digital fish phones
www.digitalfishphones.com I believe.

Also look for a free software reverb called 'ambience'. This is a really good reverb.
ALSO: There is a free Impulse reverb plugin called SIR.
Search for it in Yahoo!
It has to be used with something that has plugin delay compensation though.
