    Softube Saturation Knob is an oft quoted by the pros free plugin. It is very good, up there sonic wise with some high priced plugins. Klangheim compressors also, and to upgrade them is cheap also (around $25). I’d say it is almost worth it to switch to logic just for some of their plugins, particularly their compressors and Alchemy synth.

    Since I can vouch that the plugins on this page that I actually have are indeed excellent, I’d say raid the manufacturers on this page:

    I’d like to point out that the purchase of just one issue of Computer Music Magazine comes with dozens and dozens of very useful plugins included. These are often slightly cut down versions of commercial plugins and occasionally full versions. The variety is excellent too.

    Oh and I think it’s the best technical magazine for folks like us too, so that’s a nice bonus.

    I have 1500 plugins on my system so Im something of a collector. All either free or legitimately owned.

    With that much experience of VSTs, I gotta second that promotion of Klanghelm. I own all the klanghelm plugins and in particular, I use multiple instances of MJUC on every track. Its a no-brainer, seriously.
    They look great, sound fantastic on anything really, and Tony the dev is a great guy, and quick to respond to customer support.

    For anyone with Reaktor, check out the boscomac ensembles. They’re all free, and just great. His Floodverb is the best reverb I’ve ever used

    I also gotta say, these plugins have been tested against some products from other big named VSTs, and the bigger names were put to shame.

    Another beauty is U-He’s Podolski. Its a great synth for pads with a nice arpeggiator.
    Im a big fan of U-He and have Bazille, ACE, and Hive, but the podolski still has its uses
