For some really useful free mixing and mastering VST's, click on THIS LINK to go the a thread set up by myself and Legion - there are screenshots for all 25 VST's plus a link to the download page of each one.

Most of the VST downloads are compressed or 'zip' files; a great free and easy to use program which will uncompress or 'unzip' them is the excellent ZIP GENIUS



COMPRESSORS/LIMITERS/EXCITERS:

* Antress Modern Compressor

* Bootsy Rescue

* CS Multiband Compressor

* Elogoxa X-Cita

* GVST GComp

* Kjaerhus Classic Master Limiter

* Pushtec Leftover Lasagne

* Sweetboy T-sledge

* Tessla SE

* If you are prepared to spend a few bucks on a 'must have' piece of analogue style compression software for guitar, bass and drums, I'd heartily recommend downloading the demo of the wonderful PSP Vintage Warmer 2 - I'll guarantee you like it so much you'll end up buying this sometime!


BASS SPECIFIC:

* Elogoxa Baxxpander

* Otium BassLane


EQUALIZERS:

* Linear Phase Graphic EQ

* Habib EQ31

* Kjaerhus Classic EQ

* Voxengo Overtone GEQ


SPATIALIZERS:

* Binaural Simulator

* Antress Modern Illusioniser


REVERBS:

* Anwida Soft DX Reverb

* Kjaerhus Classic Reverb

* Freeverb Too

* DaSample Glaceverb

* SIR 1 Convolution Reverb


A 'must have' in your VST armoury is the (free) Voxengo Span - this is a great Spectrum Analyzer which you can insert anywhere in your project to see exaclty what the audio 'looks like'. Used in conjunction with EQ this is a very powerful tool.


VST SUITES

At some stage, I'd recommending downloading and trying out all the free stuff from these sites:

* AcmeBarGig - an ever growing list of VST's from forum member Ken (Johnny McFly)

* Antress Modern Plug-Ins - one download for all plugs

* Blue Line Pack - one download for all plugs

* Kjaerhaus Classic Series

* Melda Production Free VST FX

* Voxengo


Steve



PS: If you'd like me to add any more to this list, just drop the link into a reply to this post - thanks in advance

    I've kind of learned that it may be best to download a few at a time, try them and then quickly discard any that you don't like or cannot use. It's very easy to get so many plugs that you simply have too many choices. It may also be best to find a few good ones that you can get comfortable with. I find it best to have a few that I understand and know how they work and how they will sound rather than constantly fighting to get a sound with a plug that I'm not familiar with.

    Steve! Why did you do that? How am I supposed to get any productive playing in when I'm toying with a veritable barrage of new VSTs? Sure, it's like Christmas, but with too darn many toys! Aaarrggghhh!

    Yeah, it could work Bill.

    That's a very old recording which needs a lot of work - I like the tune so I might do it justice one day and re-record it, it sounds abit tame to me now!

    He he!

    I keep over 300 plugs in my VST folder mostly for research and advice purposes Alan, but I do actually use a few of them on a regular basis in my projects.

    Yeah I've fallen into the trap like most of us Steve, As someone here mentioned its so easy to get sucked in to all the mechanics of the software which is really cool although it nackers up the business of actually music to some degree.
    I decided to put something together this evening and there's not one plug in in sight. Have a listen when you get time and let me know what you think.
    I'll really have to try and get my head around what sort of music I intend to concentrate on...trouble is I like allsorts (Not liquorice).
    If I could find my style I could concentrate on improving my style like you've done with the "Metal"

    I'm assuming it's Medlioza I'm listening to Alan - it sounds great!

    Actually I agree with you about the plugins mate - less is often more for sure.

    At the moment, I can get such a good tone to record my bass and guitars with from my TonePort/Gearbox, there's not a great deal to be added later.

    My new EZ Drummer is a great bit of kit [pun intended!] for getting some decent drums into my projects and there's a lot of tweaking you can do in the program, plus I'm starting to learn the basics of sending each virtual microphone on the kit to a different track, so they can be processed separately.

    So at the moment, I'm finding I'm only regularly using three plugins for the audio tracks, my wonderful PSP Vintage Warmer 2 that goes into the guitar bins, the equally wonderful Gearbox plug-in that I add all my guitar and bass effects with and a neat little 20 band Graphic EQ that came with an old version of Sony Sound Forge which shapes my rhythm guitar tone and stops it stepping on the bass guitar too much.

    The other omnipresent VST is Cakewalk's excellent Boost 11 which, since I acquired it with Home Studio 6XL, finds it's way into the master bus of all my projects.

    Steve

    I thought as much - you haven't been intercepting my regular dispatches of the black stuff I send to Doc have you?

    Bill's already upset him in another thread going on about how old he is - I'm going to lie low for a bit I reckon

    I don't mind a drop now and again mate, but I prefer a decent drop of traditional mild or bitter.
