Excellent Free Plugins for Producers
I love to impose creative limitations on my music making process, so as part of that approach, I mostly try to limit the number of third party plugins I use, but these ones are just too good to pass up.
TDR - Tokyo Dawn Records
They offer a great EQ plugin, compressor and dynamic EQ/multiband device. all of which are free, nice to use and sound great. You can also upgrade to more feature rich versions at a very reasonable price. I have been using their Slick EQ plugin for a while now and I really like the subtle character the different saturations options impart. Kotelnikov their awesome feedback compressor, is also one of my favourites, for its super smooth, transparent yet musical compression. I like using it on my Drum group, with gentle settings in combination with The Glue.
Well worth checking out.
