    Well my award goes to..

    Spitfire Audio,
    for all that fake hyping and one-note scores.

    Talk about bad, the Hans Zimmer piano... 500 gb of ... Or Albion 4.

    Their libraries, frankly sound $#%&, straight out of the 90's samples bad.
    (Some exceptions being the joey sturgis orceatral percussion, the first hans zimmer percussion and perhaps Albion 1, and some older string libs that are no longer available).

    What reallty *"'&%$ me off is their marketing, like faking private emails being leaked about this amazing library or blacklisting youtubers who were honest in their reviews regarding their products.

    I own and like many of their libraries but agree that the marketing is just stupid. All the hype nonsense targeting millennials... I can't stand that crap. And what about the cringe-meister owner who is clearly having a midlife crisis and doing those whaaaack vlogs like he is the Casey Neistad of film world lol I see a middle aged attention whore whining to the camera like a teenage girl.

    The only thing worse than Spitfire marketing is the Spitfire fanboys. Those guys are pure cancer. They think they will be the next Hans Zimmer if they keep sucking Spitfire's cock. And don't you dare say anything negative about their beloved libraries... fucking hugbox!

    u-he
    ...just kidding.

    I would probably say NI Massive. I never liked the sound of that thing. Perhaps because it's so ubiquitous and overdone.

    Easily and by far and away the very worst plugin developer in the world.

    Don't go here kiddies.

    FXPansion esp. BFD.
    The Drums are good, but installers only work if they have a good day (...they don't have too often) and the activation is cruel.
    Deleted everything from FxPansion as it is a time thief only.

    There's a difference between bad and overrated. For example, Crysonic is bad, but not overrated, since nobody says it's a great plugin developer. Waves and Slate, instead, are overrated IMO too, just like many ppl already stated here, 'cause everybody talks about their plugins like they are the holy grail of music production. Same goes for Massive, Nexus and - I dare to say - Sylenth. This doesn't mean these products are BAD, but they're considered to be better than what they really are. They're good, sometimes very good, but not 10/10. I think Arturia's products are overrated too, since there are much better analog synth emulations out there IMO - just think of TAL's emulation of the Juno 106. We should open an "underrated plugins and developers" thread too

    Lol... Crysonic still exists??

    I tried their cracked plugins many years ago and couldn't figure out what they were supposed to do. From the marketing, you would think they were distilled unicorn poop. Very weird developer.

    Celemony Melodyne - because it's high on the X-Factor rejects' list of magical tools that can fix everything in post.

    Other than that, I quite like a bit of Melodyne tbh.
