Free Software Plugins

Sorry for all the recording threads, I just need to get going...

So..

I know free plugins are easily available for recording, like here ..

But what I wana know, is are they better than the stuff that Cubase LE comes with?

I also have some focusrite stuff that came with my interface, but haven't enabled yet (my recording comp isn't connected to the net..)

Basically, what's my best option for things like compression, EQ and reverb? (other stuff i wouldn't mind hearing about, but I'm interested in the core stuff at the moment)

It's really hard to say. It's a mixed bag and your best bet (unfortunately) is to go out there and try everything out, maybe see if you can find reviews.

here are some I use fairly regularly:

General plugins, the free ones are marked 'free' next to the name
http://www.voxengo.com/downloads/

4front vst instruments, non-sample-based piano, bass, rhodes
http://www.yohng.com/

Guitar Suite - great sounding amp modelers
http://www.simulanalog.org/guitarsuite.htm

Gvst, another set of general plugins. GTune is indispensable

What's your sequencer?

Do you use any freeware plugins over your sequencer's stuff?

bump cuz im interested too. i have gearbox that came with my line6 interface. i also have a pirated copy of guitar rig2 and thats a bit better than the line6 one. i dont think it would be worth the $400-500 they are charging for it though.

Bump!

I'm sure more people must know about this...

also, what's a convoluted reverb?
