    So, I only saw two Voxengo plugins as I scrolled down. Just for the record, they have fifteen free plugins on their site and, while they don't have shiny GUIs, they are good plugins. :yes:
    (Also? Come on!! Really, @Oysters ? I thought we'd all agreed that we have *way too many plugins, and then you come along with a thread like this, trying to get everyone to aggrandize their already swole collection of plugins? For shame, good sir, for shame. :rofl:)

    In case someone skipped over this because they didn't see a bunch of pictures and links, this is a smart thought by old school shred, especially for people just starting out who may be a bit shy of proficiency with their technology box. Keeping a clean, organized and efficient computer is something that you will be glad you did, especially after years of making music, trust me. :yes:

    I used this once, and I really wish that I knew where the track is on an old drive, but it was absolutely stellar in it's grimmy, glitchy and one trick pony rendering of my voice, turning my vocally delivered, hummed guitar lead into a grimmy, glitchy and totally ripping solo. YMMV...but just try it once. Playing with the sensitivity is what I remember being the key to it's true magic. That and driving the plugin sufficiently, kind of like needing to push dBs into the 1st generation Electro Harmonix Micro Synth or otherwise there would be dropouts in the output. I used distortion to give it a skin caught in a zipper feel with slamming compression to hammer it on the noggin.

    Not sure I've contributed yet, but I know I should!

    I like this guy's (Vadim Taranov) preamp emulations. I use the Krankenstein emulation as it's the only one I've ever found. The first site is his old wordpress site where a lot of the free stuff is. The second site has some freebies on it as well.

    I'm interested in testing the cabinet coupling VST just to see what it does to the sound. I myself don't use amp sims for finalized products anymore, but I will turn to them for in process demo's of mixes, songwriting, etc. if I need something before I've mic'd up an amp.

    YouTube video demoing the Krankenstein VST:

  10. This guy tried to force the gain up to 11 and was instantly smacked down for his effort.

    You might! I've been using a full Krankenstein stack, and that thing is LOUD! It will rattle your teeth at 5.
    Lucky that my broken Deutsch is good enough to get the joke, haha.

    This free VST will get you pretty close to the tone if you can find a good Texas heat cabinet emulation. Kazrog's Igor is pretty good, though I prefer Nebula for cab emulation.

    Granulab VST (WIN/MAC) - [FREE] :-D

    GranuLab is a real-time granular synthesizer.
    Originally (1998-2018) for Windows, now as VST 2 plugin for MacOS and Windows.

    What: Granulation means chopping the sound into small overlapping segments and playing back just like the original, or twisted, or another time.
    Howto: Load a soundfile and warp it -- time stretch, pitch shift, chorus or turn into static. Smooth transition to anything and back.
    Control: Random, LFO, Soundfile amp/noisiness, from MIDI input, or by internal params.
    Effects: Fold, overdrive, bitcrush (smoothed), dual filters (SVF), delay.

    DOWNLOAD :

    https://www.abc.se/~re/GranuLab/Granny.html

    Really good demo :

    Vember Audio Surge is now open source and free download.
    It's quite good vst instrument that never got as popular as Zebra, Massive etc (name any big popular synth), but is in their class in potential for sound design.

    General:

    • Synthesis method: Subtractive hybrid.
    • Each patch contain two 'scenes' which are separate instances of the entire synthesis engine (except effects) that can be used for layering or split patches.
    • Category based patch-browser.
    Oscillators:

    • 3 oscillators/voice.
    • 5 versatile oscillator algorithms: Classic, Sinus, Wavetable, S/H Noise and Audio-input.
    • The classic oscillator is a morphable pulse/saw/dual-saw oscillator with a sub-oscillator and self-sync.
    • Most algorithms (all except sinus and audio-input) offer up to 16-voice unison at the oscillator level.
    • Oscillator FM/ring modulation.
    • All oscillator algorithms are band-limited yet they still cover the entire audible spectrum.
    • Noise generator with variable spectrum.
    Filter block:

    • Two filter-units (7 different configurations).
    • Feedback loop.
    • Available filter-algorithms: LP12, LP24, LP24L (ladder filter with 1-4 poles), HP12, HP24, BP, Notch, Comb+, Comb-.
    • Waveshaper (5 shapes).
    Modulation:

    • 12 LFO-units available to each voice (6 are running on each voice and 6 are shared for the scene).
    • DAHDSR envelope generators on every LFO-unit.
    • 7 deformable LFO-waveforms + 1 drawable/step-sequencer waveform.
    • Fast and flexible modulation routing. Almost every continuous parameter can be modulated.
    Effects:

    • 8 effect units arranged as 2 inserts/scene, 2 sends and 2 master effects.
    • 9 algorithms: Delay, Reverb, Chorus, Phaser, EQ, Distortion, Conditioner (EQ, stereo-image control & limiter), Rotary speaker, Frequency shifter.
