Here are two of some of the most useful Free VST’s I have seen out there. You can get lost in a sea of crappy vst’s. Here are some of the gems.
SIR1 Impulse Reverb
This is a reverb device that works with “impulse-responses”. Impulse-responses are generated by recording short broadband signals and their corresponding room-reflections. What you get contains the information needed to reproduce the same room with other signals.
This only runs on Windows. If you want the new better version, or have a mac then check out http://www.knufinke.de/sir/sir2.html for the even better paid version.
Sir is a Convolution Reverb. That means it needs an IR file to emulate different spaces. Absolutely amazing sounds can be had with it.
You can read a little more on Convolution Reverb at http://subaqueousmusic.classtrack.org/knowledge-base/7-vst-effects/20-convolution-reverb-library or you can download my free library of IR’s Bellow.
This is a very simple stereo widener. Great visuals to see what is happening. Simple and True.
Download for both of these below. More vst’s to come so stayed tuned.
