    This one has been on the back burner for ages and I've finally got it to stage where it done enough to open it to the public.

    Its still very much work in progress but I know it will grow into a very useful resource.

    As you might have guessed by the title this is an ever growing database of free music software, VST plugins, VSTi instruments, DAWS and utilities.

    At the moment only I can add new items but in future Ill open this up to developers to add and manage their own content.

    Basic features to begin with are the ability to search and comment on the software listed but more will be added.

    It doesnt cover presets or soundfonts as i felt they did not fit together and we always have to have something for the future. With that said i do plan on adding a new section for those too but not just yet.

    If you are a developer and want to add your free stuff get in touch and ill get you listed.

    If you know of something that is not yet listed and think it should be leave a comment here or contact me.

    For now then, let me know if there are any problems.

    I'm always leery about downloading a random VST, and I lose my only version of a 400 dollar DAW due to a virus.

    Having a trustworthy place to get these has made my week! I've not wanted to get a new synth for fear of losing everything by virus, but the synth that comes with StudioOne, (Mojito), is quite lacking.

    Thank you very much, I will now change my britches.

    The good thing here is that we will be able to get feedback from looperman members on whats hot or not and then be able to weed out the stuff thats worth using from the rest.

    Hey Shan, this is a fantastic addition to the community. I just checked out the section and saw some really good and interesting stuff I might add to my plug in arsenal.

    Some really good vst developers to look into are Variety Of Sounds and Tokyo Dawn Lab. They carry very good mixing and mastering plug ins.

    This could be a very useful resource!

    I just checked out one link that took me to a company I'd never heard of called Plektron FX. They have freeware as well as stuff they charge for. But it's pretty damn cheap.

    Here's a link to their guitar amp and multi effects unit.

    Price: 13 euros. That's only about 17 US dollars so I think I may give it a go.

    I should add that such software will also be useful for people who do not play or record guitar or bass. It's just a multi effect and sound processing unit.

    Ive been slowly bring features online for the free music software section.

    You can now run searches and see popular or recent searches as well as see a list of the developers currently listed.

    You can also keep an eye on any recent comments left by other users.

    As well as building on the features Ive also been adding more free plugins and instruments to the list.

    If you have any suggestions of software you use that should be added leave a comment here and let me know the url of the developer or name of the software and ill take a look and add it to the list.

    This is a great addition to the site. This will be very helpful when people start adding comments to the plugins.

    some other stuff totally worth adding: vsti vst synthesizer plugin.html (original author of minihost, fantastic midi tools, 32 bit only, mostly donationware)

    the updated minihost (supports also 64 bit) Modular.htm

    what minihost is exactly:
    it is a standalone "patcher", for those familiar with FL. or a "combinator" for VSTs, for those familiar with Reason.
    pretty much a must-have plugin for the serious sound designer as well as the lazy preset-layerer.

    enjoy the goodies!

    PS: you should allow to have "percent20" in the source, it says HTML is not allowed otherwise and will break links with spaces in them.

    The wellknown ''box of chocolates'' thread...hehe.

    I'm also using a daw called LMMS. Just got it but still figuring some things out. Looks very good so far. Similar to flstudio if you ask me...

    Hi Shan, I have a few of my own free vsti creations, link below. It would be cool to share them with the looperman community.

    Hey Simon, just realized that I've used a couple of your synths without even realizing it was your work! Good to know! Downloaded the string quartet one today for a good test. Thanks!

    Cool list.

    I am not sure but can it be that you dont have a link to
    Autogun ????
    This vst gives you over 4294967296 (Four Billion Two Hundred Ninety Four Million Nine Hundred Sixty Seven Thousand Two Hundred Ninety Six) presets

    You cant do realy much - just how much stereo you want and how much processor power you can give.
    But it sounds real good.

    Be carefull! dont start just listening the sounds :)
    You need 136 years, if you listen to 1 sound in 1 sec 24 hour´s a day :)

    Caustic 3, a great little tool for music creation.
    It's free on Windows and Mac and it cost like a cheesburger on Android and iOS

    It's that good believe me.
