I have recently grabbed the complete collections from Tokyo Down Labs, Sonic Charge, and Sugar Bytes. Next on my list are u-he, Kilo Hearts, Freakshow Industries (I have “stolen”, they offer these, licenses but would like to support them by buying them), Klanghelm, and Stillwell Audio. The general aesthetics, sound, and lack of iLok (etc.) of these developers appeal to me. Does anyone have any suggestions for developers similar to any on this list? I like smaller developers (I use Renoise and Reaper) and unique designs.
Currently Own (looking for similar developers):
- TDR (Tokyo Dawn Labs) Gentlemen’s Collection (incl. De-Edger)
- Sonic Charge (complete collection)
- Sugar Bytes (Sugar Bundle 10)
- Stillwell Audio
- Freakshow Industries
EDIT: added formatted list for TLDR viewing as well as a list containing current recommendations from this thread.
