Pretty nifty little synth pad. Very spacey.

Ah thanks, i was wondering if it had anything to do with MIDIs

Only VSTis. You can also insert a VST effect (eq/compressor etc) on a midi track but it has to be AFTER the VSTi. Basically, until it hits a virtual instrument, MIDI is just note on/off information, no sound.

Definitely not your everyday kind of plug, but I can see it coming in handy every once in a while. I had an... eerie sort of song that needed some updating mix-wise, so I threw it on, and it added some pretty awesome stuff to the song. Definitely worth hanging on to as you never know when you'll use it.

Free VSTs

One of the mods over on Jam session is VP of a company which does freeware VSTs for guitar.

Now I have to admit that I haven't a clue what to do with these, but the tech heads over at JS seem very pleased with 'em!!

enjoy!!

You have to do a survey, but it's otherwise free.

Big download tho, gig and a half.

Wow, I wish I could get that on CD or something, my satellite internet knocks me off after downloaded 300 megs.

This negatively affected my tone in ways that I just can't describe.
Then, on a whim, a few years ago I wandered into a Bath and Body Works store at a local mall and picked up some of their gentle foaming anti-bacterial hand cleansers.
The difference in my guitar's sound is so wickedly improved that I no longer feel the need to buy a new amp or pedals or even strings...EVER!
So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.

Thought I would post these free VST's since they are very good and I didn't see them in the first post.

Poulin VST amp sims, the LexTac is my favorite sim by far, LePou Plugins: LeXTAC
In the small blue box off to the right is where you can download all the VST amps made by Poulin.

Nick Crow 8505 and 7170, which are sims of the Peavey 6505 and 5150,
Nick Crow 8505: Nick Crow Lab
Nick Crow 7170: 7170 Lead Guitar Amp - Nick Crow Lab

TSE X30 which is a preamp based on the Engl 530
KVR: TSE Plugins X30 - Virtual Effect

And here are some cab impulses by Ryan Harvey of Catharsis Studios, which are 2 SM57's on Mesa Oversized 4x12 with V30's. I use these in all my recordings and I personally think they are the best free impulses you can find on the web.
