Default What are your most used plug-ins?

I'm trying to get a gauge on both what you use the most, and what you feel is needed the most.


What are your most used plug-ins overall?
My most used plug-ins are compressors, I've typically got a pile of comps that add harmonic saturation. In my show files in front of me Fairchild 660, CLA76, Arousor (lots of arousor), and Impact.

What plug-ins do you use in almost every show file?
I always have a few clean EQs for output busses such as the Sonnox EQs, or EQ3, always have 1-4 instances of Reverb One, and a few of Oxford Reverb, almost always a Waves API 2500 on mains instrument bus, almost always a CLA76 on a vocal, oh and a SansAmp seems to find it's way into every file I build...

What do you feel is missing from your plug-in arsenal?
Delays, I need more DSP delays, something like Echofarm that has modulation
Pitch Shifters, I could use anything that can get me the H3000 widening or chorusing...

Yes H3000 style plugin is really needed. Pitch shifter. McDSPs new delay with built in ducking would be great to have. I’m looking forward to adding the arousor.

An automixer plugin (Dugan)

Actually the Harrison XT-TG Tom Tom gate is a style of gaiting of which I would love to see live. Just as the XT-SC Spectral Compressor is a killer for cleaning up low end mud. Getting it more punchy. The most interesting tool would be an EQ with different settings for attack and release like the Harrison character bundle. There plugins are one of top I've ever used. Can't wait to use tools like these live.

Most used: AE400; transient designer

Most missed: good reverb emt250 style but low on dsp usage. Convolution reverb like reverberate, pitch shift, automatic mixer Dugan style.

A good de-esser is greatly missed. I think I have tried them all and nothing works as good as the massey that we used to have in TDM land.

Yes, was a bit hard to get it to just zone in on the Ssses which the massey deesser does so good.
Also tried the spl deesser and mcdsp.
I am using the mcdsp because I found it to be closest to what I need it to do but still not nearly as good as the massey.

I've had decent results with Waves Renn DeEss.
