lets face it. you only need one good vsti.just get good with it. then use plogue bidule to layer and layer and layer ur vsti for massive sounds. And on to vst effects, we all like to hear new ones, but they are all takes on the same old ones., or better remodels of real hardware. for instance. i went and brought ozone(how silly was i), now im sick of it because anything i do just sounds like ive thrown ozone over the top of it. can hear it a mile away.(right across the bridge, through the fields, over the horse and cattle, beyond the mountains of Derrygoolin).You can be much more inventive using the ones you have in renoise.
Man, a couple months ago I found an PC/Win web app called Ninite, for linux users think apt-get.
Basically it has a large list of free and open source popular/usefull windows apps that keeps itself updated and you can select all of these for an unattended install,
The list is getting bigger. because it’s simply awesome.
They also have a suggest an app script on the page, to make it even more progressive.
You just go to the site, select what you want, you get an installer script and it downloads and installs everything you selected without any fuss whatsoever. I’ve used it several times and each time it ran flawlessly. http://ninite.com/
I immediately thought of VSTs when I saw how it worked so:
If someone made this for VSTs it could be Very popular.
It is possible someone could be working on something like this already but I don’t know anything about it. So it’s pretty much free game I guess.
I’m not sure how licensing works in this case, I guess In order for it to really work it would really need to be somehow linked into with KVR’s free section, and also advertised to those that don’t list on KVR.
So if anyone reading this does do this, Please Please make a PC and OSX version!
I could see KVR users/free vst devs jump behind something like this quick.
Ninite has a pay program also, that I haven’t tried out.
A ok, I think the same, with too much vsts (instruments, effects) one hides the most obvious thing, you need imagination.
Im starting to love waves (pulse,square,sine) and learn to build simple sounds. After that, you will understand much more about synthesizers.
