The little-scale libraries have been useful to me lately, he has various content but the best are the samples of old sound and speech synthesizer chips: http://little-scale…bel/sample sets


1st year free pack content (about 300Mb in size):

vinyl drum sounds

these are also fantastic free kontakt instruments http://www.hollowsun…packs/index.htm

U-he has another research-ware (that’s what they call it) available for free:…alpha-available

Great site here if you’re looking for Pianos or other acoustic instruments. Often offered as either Kontakt sets or wrapped as VSTi.

Another good freebie site here. Check the free stuff menu at the top for more categories. What i like about this site, it appears to be hand curated quality over quantity.

Let me know if there are any dead links too and I will update as often as possible.

(Check edit date bottom of this post for latest update to list).

^^6 added.

Been a while since last update. Added 10+ links (starting with “Unfiltered Audio Indent”).

You can get the 2016 Stereo Room Reverb from Eventide free through september. Register here at Focusrite, after the login you will see 2 codes, register now here at the Eventide website and login, in your account settings register a new product and pick the reverb, then add the 2 codes you got from Focusrite. Worth mentioning, that this plugin is ILOK protected, but you don’t need an actual USB key for it, it works with just an account too. Also not sure if it is supposed to work by simply creating a new account, but it did for me. All their promo ads make it sound, like it’s only intended for people actually owning something from Focusrite.

Thanks Beatslaughter. Will check it out. Will update list when possible and amend any new finds.

New freebie from Izotope, haven’t played around with it yet.

Blurp: Add that final polish to your mix with Neutrino, a free spectral shaping plug-in that offers a glimpse into iZotope’s newest mixing technology. Insert Neutrino on multiple tracks across your session to reveal a subtle amount of detail that can help elevate great mixes to a new level of refinement.

Thanks Beatslaughter. Added. Also updated with a few more links.

All GVST stuff now(?) seems to be available for Mac OSX, too!

Still beta though, but nice to have!

EDIT: Hm, doesn’t seem to work at all with Renoise plugin scanner currently. Hopefully there will be a fix soon!

Another freebie, this time from Soundtoys. You can get the Sie-Q plugin free till 13th October, requires an ILOk account. The site is being hammered right now, so you may have to try it at a later time.

Blurb: Get great low-end and smooth, silky highs from our first-ever equalizer. The new Soundtoys Sie-Q is inspired by and meticulously modeled from the 60s German classic Siemens W295b*, along with our own distinctive twist on the original for added utility and creative power. Sie-Q creates unique, yet highly-usable color and tone ideal for full and sub mixes, vocals, drums, guitars and more.

Thanks. Just tried it out. good stuff.

I just found these great AVL Drumkits – acoustic sets in SFZ format with a CC license, very live sounding!

Is a free sampler vst based on Dune 1 synth. It uses SFZ formats. There also are a bunch of free libraries on that page. I also wonder, if those libraries could be even used directly in Renoise, since SFZ format?

Haven’t been back here for a while and so neglected this list. Get back to it and update asap :wink:

Here is a link to VST4Free that give you a quicker access to all 507 * 5 = 2535 free VST/VSTi.

Just go down on the page given by the URL below and have fun with the 507 pages.

I’ll ad my list!

VST effects

Probably the best VST effect there is out there.

Get all on this, you can never have too many saturators. Some are included in link above.



Good for panning stuff, but your DAW can probably do it so this VST might be unnecessary

Filters one is craate when you wanna use cutoff with automation A simple LP/HP filter Really cool and unique filter/saturator Bass booster that tiees to boost bass without distort it.

EQ’t tried it myself but it’s recommended very often. just as super simple EQ. This one is AMAZING and I use it on almost every track. Very highly rated-

Distortion distortion with it’s own kind of sound/fuzz

Chorus use cshorues that veyr good at bringing out harmonci all porpuse chorus Chorus with some special features, good for sound design

Limiers Simple.

Stereo expander but at the same time advances, got some nifty panning fatures.

Delay delay that tries new ways to make it sound modern. advanced but sounds awesome too.

Gate sipmle gate effect- gate, but is included in top link.

Compressors oriented compresssor mix of compressor and saturator, can be used in very different ways from MeldaProduction is AAA must, but is included in link at top!

Phaser phaser that does the job good.

Saturator Get all of these.



Nice work @dirtnoise. I use plugin boutique too. Has meant I was able to afford somethings I may not have, their rewards thing has also reduced prices on many things for me.

Also big fan of glitch machines, I have a few of their plugins which I find great for sound design. As far as I can remember, a few sample packs and two? of their plugins are freebies.

I loveplugin boutique. Some deals are amazing and I managed to snag Izotope Neotron Elements and Ozotope 7 Elements for 44€ using a 78% coupon I got from their rewards program. If something is expensive, I’ll mail the devs usally. CableGuys once gave me a 50% coupon on their whole series.

Not only 2, Glitch Machine have 8 free effects if I understand the site correctly. I haven’t used them to much yet, tried using them for glitching some neurobasses this morning, so I I mainly use Stutter Edit for glitching, I actually got a extra key for Stutter Edit that I want to sell for something like 60~, it’s listed at 220~ I think.

I’m gonna fill up this thread when I find good stuff!

Free till end of october, ILOK protection.
