Worth what? It's free.

if you get a vst --> rtas wrapper ($99) then there is a whole new world open. unfortunately that "whole new world" is pretty useless apart from a few soft synths. though i have about 200 wrapped plug-ins and only use a handful, i think i got my money's worth with the wrapper.

yep, having a vst wrapper is essential when you're using Protools

There are some good free VST plugs...audiomastermind is a site that has them. The bootsy series is good, as is a line of plugs with a german sounding name, forgot what is was

If you want a good free amp sim, check out juicy 77...pretty damn convincing..

I did a list of all the free RTAS plug-ins I could find at the time a while back.

Sorry for the plug, but I figured some would find it useful.

BX Solo is ridiculously handy when you are checking mixes... free.

Nah, don't agree with that at all.

The only wrapped plugin I've ever used is apTrigga I think - and now that I've got the Massey plugin, I have no need for that.

There are some notable exceptions of course, but a large number of "free" VSTs are free for a reason - no one would pay for them.

I'd use a wrapper if the plugin I wanted to use wasn't available for PT, but so far I've not really found that to be the case - PT certainly has plenty of processing plugins available (some would argue the best selection at the moment, given that McDSP aren't available elsewhere). If I did more programming and writing, maybe I'd be frustrated that not all softsynths are available as RTAS, but for mixing, you definitely don't need to wrap anything.

There are some very cheap and very good vst plugs which work well with PT using the FX wrapper.
The DDMF EQ is great, and all the Stillwell plugs very good value - dont just restrict yourself to the free ones.

The extra clutter and disk space can be considered. With protools being as buggy as it is, some plugins have caused stability problems so there's definitely a "is it worth it" factor to installing free plugs (or bought plugs for that matter).

Ick no.

Trying to find good VST's is like swimming in an olympic sized swimming pool filled with feces and going diving for 1/4 carot diamonds.

There are some great ones... but there is a TON of junk.

Good points, but my comment was mostly a joke...sort of. I'd rather pay for plugs I know work and are PT compatible as well as have tech support to back them up. I'm sure there's great free stuff out there, but I don't make records for free, sooo...

For what it's worth, I got a chuckle out of it.
