Can anyone recommend me some free VSTs?

Postby Music Bird » Sun Feb 18, 2018 3:29 pm

I have tons of them, like Synth1, Dexed, PG-8X, SQ8L (I may never need a real Ensoniq ESQ-1 or SQ-80), and many others. I even have Combo Model F and V. So are there any standouts that I might like?
Korg, Casio, Alesis, and Yamaha (Minilogue, WK-7600, SK-1, Harmony 61, SR-16, MX49)
FL Studio 12, VSTs, MIDI keyboard
Non synths include string, woodwind, percussion, and toys for SFX.

u-he Tyrell N6 Nice sounding VA, my favorite freeware synth. Comes with a good preset library, but easy to program...like an expanded Roland Juno.

I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

VST4FREE.com, VSTPlanet.com, and KVRAudio.com have the biggest listings. KBrown has a new and very extensive collection of free VSTs. There is the ElektroStudio collection of classics no one else has. Sonic Projects has a small free version of their OP-X. Tubeohm has four free versions that are amazing. I just added a link to the entire H G Fortune collection. B Serrano synths are excellent, as are de la Mancha and DSK. I have so many free VSTs I have downloaded (171GB!) and only a fraction that i have installed. You can go nuts but after a while you have to learn how to pick and choose, otherwise you just drown.
Nymph, in thy orisons be all my synths remember'd.

I got the ElektroStudio and B Serrano stuff. I particularly like VST4FREE.com because you would be surprised what one can find, I have a sitar and accordion plugin from that site, not that I'll need them, but they'll be useful.
