    Thanks Mathew Lindsay for creating such a professional vst and freewaring it for those less fortunate people who make music. Its really helped me find some XTRA BASS in my music. I would donate something to you if i could, but i dont know where.

  • John Aleksic

    I keep trying to download some DSK plug-ins and after it begins, I’m given an authentication box that requires a user name and password. How do I get authorized???

  • @John, perhaps you are using a download manager? Try without, that should work.

  • Hi, I was just wondering if any of the freeware presented on this page is compatible with Mac OS, as an Audio Unit plug-in, or as a VST plug-in for Mac, that can be used with a VST to AU adaptor?

    check out my music, hope u likes

    best regards

  • Hi Drem, just had a listen to some of your songs. Very nice!

    Unfortunately most plug-ins on this page are Windows only. The only one that is available as a VST for Mac is DtBlkFx. Not sure if that one will be very useful to you though…

  • Puji

    Thanks…this vst/vsti very usefull…Very nice!

  • thanks Ronnie, I’ll have to do without these nice gadgets listed here, except for DtBlkFx that I have installed and is properly working…fortunately, there is a wealth of free plug-ins for Mac OSX out there, just a matter of holding your horses and being selective. All the best, Drem B.

  • DMG studios.

    am having the same trouble of using these free plugins,They keep demanding for a password What am ito do?

  • @DMG studios, are you downloading with a download manager? If so, try downloading without because these don’t always work right I’m afraid.

  • 4D Records

    Thank you for hosting these great plugins – and thanks to the programmers who made them.

    I am looking for very simple effect: the looper with abbility to play “triplets”, but every VST looper on the entire world can loop 1/4, 1/16, 1/32 etc. only. I am looking for this effect for ten years, but it seems it doesn´t exist… :(

  • Josh

    how do oyu install the plug ins to your software? do they work with FL Studio?

  • Ali Hayder Shawon

    Why you removed the DH Visual Metronome? I am a huge fan of this. I have used it for several years. But recently my Harddisk damaged. Now I want to download that from internet. But I can’t find. It seems you have deleted from everywhere. Really I need the DH Visual Metronome. Please repost it or send to my email alihaydershawon@gmail.com

    • DH Visual Metronome was never hosted at rekkerd, sorry.
