  • These are awesome. I would definitely love to know more about the plugs, how they were made (SynthEdit, C++), how long they have been in production, etc.

  • Hi Martin, Terry has a website here (it’s all in Dutch though).

    Roby, I believe Terry coded the plugins with assembly, and the GUI was done in SynthEdit (with some ext. modules).

  • DC

    Awesome plugs bro… Thanks…!!…

    Kind regards…

  • RovinRalph

    Dear Terry,

    I arrived at this website (free-plugin-list.com) via a link related to NewTek’s SpeedEDIT.

    I downloaded your Steady and SteadyPro Bundle, as these were the only ones of interest to me right now. However, after downloading, unarchiving and installing them in the VST folder in SpeedEDIT, I’ve not seen any evidence of their being there or anything that brings up their respective control screens. What am I not doing correctly, or does SpeedEDIT perhaps just not support your utilities?



  • torsoliso

    thank you for your great efforts! I downloaded (I think) every piece of software you are sharing here with us, so I’ll give them a try and come back later to leave a comment, a little reward for such a huge work you’ve been doing here.

    THANK YOU ALL, my best 4 U!

  • Thanks everybody.

    First i like to mention that i have a plugin dedicated website: http://www.terrywest.110mb.com.

    @RovinRalph: Does SpeedEdit really support vst plugins?
    Steady Pro should work in all major hosts and supports Xp~Vista.
    Else mail me through my site.

    To all other commenter’s: thanks and visit my site for updates and new plugins.

  • Great job with the website Terry and thanks a lot for your hard work!

    Hi, I`m completely new to visti and i`ve just downloaded easyvox v 1.3, but i cant find a manuel and have no idea how it works, is there someplace i can find one ?


  • Patrick,
    I will soon make a simple manual for EasyVox.
    Check my website soon, i will upload it there.

  • synchrosq

    Thanks for these Terry.. I am psyched to try them.

  • Travis Hamilton

    nice easy to use plugins,thank you so much

  • Raheem Washington

    Came here for those steady vsts. Its very convenient to have some sort of vocal rider plugin even if only temporarily during the early mixing(before doing it manually via automation riding of the fader or riding some on/off activated compressor’s gain). Using an expander totally makes sense but most dont feel like doing all the extra tinkering to put one on(especially we young mixers still trying to make sure we remember the jillion other things we’ve learned about mixing). THis is where fun vst plug ins come in handy. Just imagine never have a de-esser….youd then have to manually tinker around to multiband out your esses. Same concept here. Easily the coolest vsts on this page are the steady vsts. THANKS!
