Happy Memorial Day from Multi-Platinum!
We figure that you’re probably out enjoying the beautiful weather and sitting around a nice barbeque with family and friends, but in case you’re like us and are sitting in front of a computer recording some music, we’ve got some good news.
If you’ve never heard of pluginboutique.com, you’re missing out.
Since you may not have come across this already, we’d like to share this with you and get you some free plug-ins and virtual instruments!
We all love new stuff – especially when it’s free. But instead of aimlessly downloading everything you see on this page, look through everything and decide to only download three at a time. This is a good thing to do in general. You’ll be able to really learn each plug-in better and will get to know what you like and what you don’t.
The three I chose were: The Leeds Town Hall Organ (Kontakt Instrument), TesslaPRO, and Bittersweet v3.
I absolutely love the Town Hall Organ instrument. It’s not perfect for everything, but I can definitely imagine where it would fit perfectly. It has a somewhat eerie sound to it that can be used extremely effectively in a spooky or dark track.
The TesslaPRO saturation plug-in met expectations, but didn’t really exceed. It sounds pretty cool, but I wouldn’t want to use it on very many tracks. It doesn’t quite sound as nice as Slate plug-ins or even stock Cubase plug-ins, but I guess that is to be expected given the price you pay for it! Still a nice plug-in to have in your back pocket to dirty up a track!
The Bittersweet v3 Transient Shaper did a pretty good job on some drums that I tried it on. Not quite as good as Native Instruments Transient Master plug-in, but pretty darn close. If you don’t have a transient shaper, this is definitely a good way to go. It can really add some punch to your kick and snare when used in parallel.
Which three plug-ins are you going to download? If you’re a member and have access to our 1,000 training videos, hop over to the forums and let us know there – or leave us a comment here! Enjoy your free plug-ins, and have a happy Memorial Day!
