All three from Intelligent Devices, Camelspace and AD Automaton. All for kicking the creativity in the head.

I wouldn't say its a secret weapon i use a lot. But a nice thing to have in your collection is Magnus Jonsson Ambience. Used sparingly its a whole new dimension. Its a free download. Its not an every day kinda thing, But its cool to have, great to use.

I have a lot of cool paid for plugins, but this for a free b is outstanding.

PS, Just got Waves Classic Compressors in the deal that's on. They are looking promising right now. The Waves Studio Classics also get a lot of use.

Soundtoys Decapitator. Just push the "punish" button and turn the gain all the way up. Problematic source material fixed. (no, for real)

Sonnox SuperEsser... And I don't even work with vocals that much.

Edit: Cytomic's The Drop is one of the smoothest filters I have ever heard... Sonic Charge's ┬ÁTonic is great for adding a little flair to drums... So many great plug-ins. ValhallaVintageVerb is next on my buy list.

Surfer EQ - an intelligent EQ that boosts/cuts harmonics that correspond with the detected pitch - very cool!

I have a mastering job right now that I'd like to fix this way.

The MClass Maximizer that comes with Reason. I couldn't keep a steady and reasonable output level without it.

- Slate VCC (overall sound)
- Slate VTM (overall sound)
- UAD SPL Transient designer (works magic on many things)
- Brainworx bx_dynEQ (For annoying resonances, subtle 'ducking' and those interesting situations where two instruments briefly clash on the same frequency)
- Waves Z-noise/X-noise

Same here! There's a preset on Ohmboyz that i really like to add it on certain tracks. I especially like to add it on guitars, effects and spoken word vocals to give it that trippy stereo effect. The preset is called "Simple Delay LPF LFO".
The other "secret weapon" plug i use a lot is discoDSP's ThrillMe.
