VSTs & Plug-ins recommendation

  • Abstract Motion

    Hey guys, any favorite VST or Plug-in that you would like to share?
    I personally like to work a lot on sound design, and most of my favorites Plug-ins are modulators or distortion.
    I would really like to share a bit of an obscure plug-in by a not so famous company named AIR.
    The Plug-In is called AIR Lo-Fi, and is super simple, just a few knobs that distort and reduce the quality of the sound.
    I always use the rectify parameter on leads and even drums to make it a bit more dirty, and hence getting a fuller sound.
    Another Plug-in that I like a lot is Enigma by Waves, which is a Chorus like Fx with a few more parameters than most modulators out there.
    I really like how it is easy to create a more exotic Fx with it just by changing a few knobs.
    Really good if you are striving for a more unique sound design.

    If there is any other Plug-in or VST that you guys would like to share, or even a company that is not so famous but make sick ass plug-ins, just post it below.
    Hoping to hear from you!


    Waves Complete Bundle is just Amazing.
    I personally use a lot H-Delay and TrueVerb and find them to be the best Modulation Effects vsts.
    Compression-wise Fabfilter Pro-C 2 Is really accurate and it shows you the realtime spectrum being affected.
    In fact all Fabfilter Bunddle is beautiful Pro-Q (EQ), Pro-R (Reverb), and Saturn(Dist.) are just amazing.
    I find that Cytomic The Glue gives you a good character when compressing drums and I like it to give those sounds a more “artistical” and fast compression.

    On Synths and samplers two friends I did on ADE showed me their songs and I asked what Vst did they use for the piano.They showed me Korg M1. Korg M1 is pretty amazing for this Future House kind of piano sound.
    I used to use Una Corda for Kontakt and it is such a beautiful instrument and really realistic.

    Waves definitely has some good plugins.

    Are you guys familiar with ValhallaDSP though? https://otgs.io/discover/vintageverb/

    Really good reverb for very little. Use it on all my projects.

    Abstract Motion

    Yeah Kabir, that’s the one haha

    Also, Fabfilter make some really nice plug-ins, their visual reference is very well done.
    If I’m not wrong Korg M1 piano and organ sound was used in a lot of dance classics, it has some great sounds on it, would love to get my hands on one hahaha

    I have never really used this Plug-in, but I heard from others producers that it is one of the best Reverbs out there. I gotta say it has a very friendly interface hahah

    Time Travel Companions

    Top end stuff : PLugin Boutique, UAD (you need uad hardware) and Eventide. Quality but pricey

    Check out Reason as plugin with Reason 11.. lots of expressive hq effects and instruments

    Abstract Motion

    Woow, Have always been a fan of Reason’s GUI, having it as a plug-in look super fun.
    Great innovation this one!

    Crimson Lake Production

    I’d like to recommend Ohmicide. It’s a really nice multiband distortion plugin with a ton of different distortion types to choose from. Easy to go overboard with, like any kind of distortion, but it’s great for polishing up an abrasive/aggressive/crunchy texture on a bass or something like that, or for some subtle coloring on drums and leads.
