Here you will find actual reviews about many free VSTs to be found. And I’m talking about the legal stuff, not some shady shit you gonna find elsewhere.

…(Wait, what is VST? —>Steinberg developed it. By now it is the standard plugin format for almost all available DAWs and you will have a hard time making music these days without it. Here you gonna find some general and historical information.)…



Well everyone loves free stuff, right? So we might aswell embrace it. On the subject of – free – vsts: There are many archives, websites, collections and whatever with thousands (no kidding…) of these free vsts (or links to these). But I have had a hard time finding acutal reviews. Sometimes a short comment, for some of them there is a video, but thats it.

This blog is – mainly – for beginners! But don’t get this wrong. Some of the vsts you may find in professionel studios (or are even develpoed by them). There is some really good stuff and I’ll try to catalog as good as I can, so you won’t make the same mistakes I did – blindly collecting all the free vsts because they are just there – and get lost in the sheer number.

My goal is to build an overview of good free vsts instead of the usual soulless collections often seen and help you to find the good stuff and estimate their value for you.

As I began I searched for something like this but could not find it.

I will try to make my assessments as objectiv as possible.
