Default Good Plug-ins

Hi, I'm looking to spend about $500 on some plug-ins, I have what came with the digi 001 before all the reason and live extras, I'm looking for a nice compressor, limiter, maybe a reverb etc. so if you could name some good plug-ins or packages you use a lot that would be great, thanks.

I love the Joe Meek bundle for Comp and EQ, KILLER!! Altiiverb is a great reverb plug in, but I find myself using Dverb all the time. Go with the Joe Meek bundle, it is really good.

It's a plug-in company, they make the PSP vintage warmer which I heard is very good, but I was wondering about their other stuff maninly their Mix Pack

The Vintage Warmer is great.
The Mix Pack is even better.
The Lexicon delays are killer.
The Master Q is sublime.

No ties with PSP, I just love companies who deliver quality products, especially when they're moderately priced.

You might also want to check out www.sonalksis.com

They will be RTAS soon but in the meantime, you can run the VST versions using the VST-RTAS adapter. These have become my #1 plugins. There's a 30-day fully functional demo for each plugin. You'll be amazed at what a difference a "good" eq and compressor can make!

Lastly, do check out the Valvetone '62, it's one of our community member's efforts, and it sounds amazing. A simple bass and treble EQ but man, talk about tone shaping capabilities.

Of course, there's also Waves. Overpriced, over-heard, and over-rated. Just my opinion.

I Gotta agree with PK 100%. I don't even use Waves anymore. The Bomb Factory LA2A I think is good too! It's a Digi product now.

i agree. but you forgot the easyverb - it has some real killer algorithms for just $69, however currently needs to be run via vst adapter, but they should have rtas by the end of the year.

me too. i only use waves very little nowadays. waves plugs tend to sound too sterile - or "transparent", as it is popular to say - and they have too technical approach.

i recommend and use:
- URS everything
- focusrite D2/D3
- McDSP analog channel and multiband comp
- antares mic modeler (and autotune for taming the less-than-perfect vocalists)
- PSP delays, vintagewarmer and mixpack

...and don't forget the bf76 freebie - it's GREAT!

(when i do live, which is very often, i sometimes use the waves renn-vox and renn-axx, because there just isn't a comp that is faster to set up nicely. when i have less than minute to do preliminary sound-check, that's what i grab first. then, later, i replace it with a D3.)
