USEFUL FREE PLUGINS I USE

Please note: These are mainly OSX versions, some are also available for Windows.


CABLEGUYS Pancake 2

Just add some syrup and you are good to go!

Cool plugin that automagically pans a signal left and right, you can
sync it to the beat, have it running free, mix between dry/wet and
draw the exact path of the pan too!


Voxengo Marvel GEQ

Click "Routing" change it to Mid/Side Stereo then use the "Edit Group" buttons on the bottom left to switch between the groups and sort out your frequencies! Play with it a bit through a pair of headphone on a good stereo signal to hear what it does. 


Voxengo Span

Want to know what's up and what's not? 

Use this plugin to pinpoint what frequencies might need taming
and get some balance in your mix.


Xfer Dimension Expander

Ever had your dimension contracted?

Use this plugin to expand it.


Xfer OTT

This plugin is super good at keeping things in check and also brings out some body to your sounds, try to find the sweet spot on the depth knob, it'll probably be around 20%, but as always, just play with it.


FLUX Bitter Sweet 2

Donuts or Lemons?

Use this to add a sprinkle of Sugar or a drop of Lemon to your sounds.


TDR Nova

One of the absolute best free plugins I have ever used.

There is also a paid version with more options, so if you like it as much as I do, then drop the guys over at TDR some change for the upgrade version.


TDR Kotelnikov

Nice if used gently, very good for a little bit of transparent compression.


TDR Vos SlickEQ

Great EQ with a smattering of different flavours, can't fault it.


ELYSIA NIVEAU FILTER

Quickly re-balance a low or top heavy sound.


ALEX HILTON A1 STEREO CONTROL

Sometimes too much width is a bad thing.

Reign it back in and do all manner of things with
your stereo field using this effective plug in.


PECHENEG TREMOLO

Pad a bit plain?

Add a little tremolo from Pecheneg to give it some movement.


U-HE PROTOVERB

A little on the random side, but that is kind of nice sometimes, shove it on a sound and randomize the model and delays to get a different sounding reverb everytime.


MELDA PRODUCTION M-FREE FX BUNDLE

It's a whole bundle of free plugins.

What more could you ask for?


SOFTUBE SATURATION KNOB

Things a little flat?

Crank this up to add a bite of colour to your audio.


ROTH-AIR V1.0

Sweet little plugin that as the name suggests, adds some top end air to anything you put through it, however, it's tempting to over-do it with this plugin, so don't push it too far!


PAID PLUGINS I USE


ACON DIGITAL DEFILTER

This plugin analyses its input and creates an opposed eq graph that is then applied to the output. Subtle use can really help to iron out problem frequencies in otherwise unusable audio.


WAVES APHEX VINTAGE AURAL EXCITER

Similar to Roth-Air, this plugin adds some top end to your audio, but with added vintage colour, again use sparingly.

WAVES L2 ULTRAMAXIMIZER

Nice for flattening out those peaks and pushing up a little body into your audio.

WAVES PUIGCHILD 670

Adds a very nice lower end analogue warmth while opening up the signal.

WAVES CENTER

A lot of these plugins are about control, reigning things in and making everything sound 'nicely packaged', Center does a great job
of that with the Mids and Sides.

WAVES KRAMER MASTER TAPE

In this digital age we spend a lot of time and money trying to get things to not sound digital, this plugin is fantastic at adding a little of that fuzzy tape warmth.

FAB FILTER PRO-Q 2

There are EQ's and then there are EQ's, this is an EQ! By far the best 'transparent' EQ I have ever used, well worth the price.

FAB FILTER PRO-R

Most reverbs sound like you are throwing a tin can full of nails around inside an even bigger tin can, this one is different, lush sounding reverbs with a huge amount of control, all in a single plugin.

NUGEN MONOFILTER 4

Again, control. Super wide stereo bass doesn't work, Monofilter pulls the lower end together, it'll help your mix sound more steady, stable and planted.


XLN AUDIO RETRO COLOR RC-20

Noise, fluctuations, grit, fuzz, reverb and dropouts, all these things add texture to your sounds, and all these things are here in this plugin!
