Must have plugins?

Post by jeremyb »

I have a bunch of synths, guitar amps and effects, EQs, etc, what else are your absolute must haves and why?

I love Softube’s console plugins- I use their API channel on every track in most of the songs I work on. I also love Soundtoys Lil Radiator for a bit of colour. Cool saturation plugins suck me in- latest is Softube’s Chandler Zener Bender. Fuck that thing sounds amazeballs.

For my day job it’s quite different- Fabfilter Pro Q3 for EQ, CEDAR DNS and iZotope RX Advanced for dialogue noise reduction, and Cinematic Rooms by Liquid Sonics (which is a mind blowing awesome sounding reverb). Can’t live without those.

Fabfilter eq and Saturn 2,

Valhalla reverb.

I'm liking the Archetype Bolly the most. It seems to cover the most ground whereas the Tosin, Gojira, Wong ones only do one sound well and a few shit ones thrown in.

None of these are must have though, there's a million eqs, verbs and amp sims, I just find these easiest to use and provide good results quickly.

I have all the Kush stuff on subscription...it's all beautiful with very diverse saturation. I like the Softube active eq on vocals and their focus eq on guitar.
