I'm relatively new to all this stuff, but have got the VST plugin bug thanks to @Freebird showing me all kinds of cool new things to add to my mix!
I'm only just touching the surface as far as utilitarian plugins are concerned so my knowledge is limited, so I'll share a list of my favourite effect-y type plugins, of which, I feel I can comment. Let us know your favourites and maybe we can get a tidy list!
- Valhalla Vintage Verb - like the Big Sky but better
- Valhalla Shimmer - great, although I would like to be able to choose the interval of the shimmer
- NI Replika XT - superb and vastly underrated delay
- EZDrummer - not sure if it counts as its an instrument
Wishlist: I want to get my hands on Echoboy and Omnisphere and the Waves CLA-2A comp.
