Top Freeware Picks – January 2008

Bootsy TesslaSE v1.0

The new year started off well with tons of new and updated freeware VST effect and instrument plugins.

Here are my top picks of January in random order.

  1. TesslaSE by Bootsy.
    This effect plug-in does some tube+digital magic in the area of signal saturation and coloration.
  2. S3 by Krakli.
    Can we ever have enough string machine emulators? I think not!
  3. Prophanity by Roberson Audio.
    This one does a great job emulating the classic Prophet 5 synth. Must check if you like VA type synths.
  4. GTG 44 S by GTG Synths.
    Mik’s plug-ins are always top notch and this six voice VA type synth is no exception. Great for those oldskool analog type sounds, fat leads etc.

The plug-ins listed above are all freely available in VST format for Windows PC.
