    This thread exit because ReFX is dumb (they delete all of their old plugins like wipe it from internet) but also for fun and nostalgic. They also block us from using archive.org to get their old plugins aswell. So if who have their old plugins just upload it to the Sister site so all of those "old but gold" plugins doesnt get lost. :)
    (also dont need to be plugins, just everything like presets, banks, ect for those lost plugins related to ReFX)

    So let me start first. Here is the list of plugins I think exit but almost impossible to find or lost:
    ReFX - Beast (close to lost) (thanks to Awake for remind me)
    ReFX - PlasticZ (close to lost)
    ReFX - JunoX² (exit on AONW but impossible to find)
    ReFX - Alpha JunoX² (Alpha version of JunoX² ??? or just a another version of the JunoX² ?)
    ReFX - JunoX² for MacOS (so macos user dont get mad at me:rofl:)
    ReFX - Vanguard (Still available on the sister site and also RUTK)
    ReFX - Slayer (close to lost)
    ReFX - Quadrasid (close to lost)
    ReFX - TBL (close to lost, still available on VSTPLANET)
    ReFX - Claw (close to lost, still available on VSTPLANET)
    ReFX - Trasher or Trasher II (?????)
    Steinberg - Xphraze (Made by ReFX. Still available on the sister site). Thanks to Jameshow

    Also this is not all reFX discontinued products, if you know more then help us down in the comment!

    Just a suggestion but why don't you also include the function of each plugin. Are they Virtual Instruments or Effects? What kind? etc.

    Beast by reFX

    - Monophonic.
    - Four oscillators with PWM.

    reFX - qudraSID
    quadraSID offers far more than a simple emulation of the SID chip. Enriched with many new functions e.g. an arpeggiator, four LFOs, wavetables and four times oversampling, this software instrument offers unlimited sonic possibilities, and surprises even the most experienced SID professional by its flexibility.

    reFX - Claw
    "Claw is a monophonic synthesizer with breath-taking possibilities. The sound production is identical with reFXs' Beast with the difference that Claw has only one oscillator (Beast has four). Pulsating basses or cutting Leads - Claw is flexible and offers a pressureful, penetrationable sound, which satisfies your needs. Claw - accept the challenge and let nothing frighten you anymore!"
    reFX - Junox²
    Alpha JunoX² is the reincarnation of DashSynthesis Alpha JunoX, ethical and legal issues aside. Anyway, its got a new GUI, bug fixes, more presets, is currently available for Windows but will be available for MacOS shortly and costs $30 (Introductory price).

    Features:
    - 2 - 16 voice polyphonic (Selectable)
    - 2 oscillators + Sub oscillator
    - 22 oscillator types
    - 8 Filter types
    - LFO
    - Fatness control

    reFX - PlastiCZ
    PlastiCZ sounds different. With two phase-morph oscillators and AM you can coax completely new sounds from PlastiCZ.
    PlastiCZ has a simple and clearly arranged user interface, the individual modules are differently coloured from each other and all parameters are always accessible.
    Ten insert-effects give that certain extra to the sounds and offers further possibilities for extravagant sounds.

    Feature highlights:
    - Two phase-morph oscillators with AM.
    - Build in FX-unit with ten effects.
    - 128 ready-to-go presets including 40 presets by Hubertus Maaß.
    - Up to 16 voices.
    - Very easy to use.

    reFX - Slayer
    Slayer is a physical modelled virtual E-Guitar + AMP + Cabinet + FX:

    - Emulates 3 different pick-up types with 9 string variants.
    - Guitars material and size can be changed (good for acoustic sounds).
    - Built in AMP/Cabinet simulation (6 Amp models & 6 Cabinets).
    - 16 effects "pedals" (eight pre-amp, eight post-amp) including "Wah Wah", Tremolo, Phaser, Chorus, etc.
    - Effect-pedals can be moved around to change the signal-processing order (Drag 'n' Drop).
    - Up and down strumming is supported (up, down, alternate and velocity).
    - Playing-aids for instant gratification.
    - 64 presets.
    - The effects section is also included as a separate effect plugin.

    reFX - Vanguard
    reFX have released Vanguard which "combines the good old analog synthesizer idea with the latest technology: all analog devices of classic synthesizers are emulated by high-quality DSP (digital signal processing) functions. reFX spent a lot of time programming the synthesis functions as good as possible: the result is a warm and rich sounding synthesizer plugin with all the benefits of today's digital technology".

    However, Vanguard is more than just a simple synthesizer. It is equipped with 31 different type of oscillators, including uncommon digital oscillators with fresh modulation options. There is also a huge selection of filters: 13 filter types are onboard with different slopes and including a new kind of combined dual-filter variations.
    Vanguard also features a trancegate, arpeggiator, delay and reverb. The trancegate is a 16-step gate to create rhythmic gated patterns and the arpeggiator comes with inspiring patterns and several play modes.

    Vanguard costs 89,99 EUR/USD and is available as a VSTi for Windows and Mac (OS9 and OSX). Owners of the the discontinued JunoX2 synthesizer will receive the function reduced Vanguard Lite loyalty version for free and will be able to upgrade to Vanguard for only 59,99 EUR/USD.

    Feature highlights:
    - Advanced analog-modelling synthesis with 3 oscillators and up to 32 voices.
    - 31 different oscillators.
    - 3 low frequency oscillators.
    - 13 different filter types with resonance.
    - 2 ADSR envelopes with several modulation targets.
    - Amplifier section with drive.
    - Flexible and easy to use arpeggiator (not available in VANGUARD LITE).
    - 16 step trancegate (not available in VANGUARD LITE).
    - Built-in delay with four different types (not available in VANGUARD LITE).
    - Built-in reverb (not available in VANGUARD LITE).
    - Temporal effect parameters are tempo-sync'd to the VSTi host.

    reFX - Nexus 2
    EXUS2 is a next generation ROM synthesizer of the highest quality that can turn your musical dreams into a stunning reality. Forget about stereotypical, boring, stale, old sounding ROM synths and embrace the power of NEXUS2 to evolve your productions to a new level of greatness.
    NEXUS2 explores new sonic territory delivering complex, ultra-fat, contemporary soundstorms that sound as good as the most expensive and best hardware available today. A powerful and flexible architecture is the foundation that supports the immediately useful and spontaneously engaging design of the instrument. Every aspect of NEXUS2 was built to produce music of the highest quality, quickly, with the least amount of fuss.

    NEXUS2 features a world-class 32 step arpegiator with note-transposition, an agile and simple 32 step trance gate, industry leading reverb licensed from Arts Acoustic, and a sophisticated modulation-matrix that will help you sculpt the sound.

    NEXUS2 provides you with everything you need to create your next hit, including a comprehensive 4GB library of over 880 sounds covering a significant sonic territory and driven by a very friendly internal librarian to find the exact sound you need in the heat of the creative moment.
    Features like search, favorites, and categorization are standard not only in the factory library but in all available expansions. You will never feel lost or confused searching extensively and wasting time, you will be able to pinpoint the sound you are after within seconds. You won't run out of sounds quickly either as NEXUS2 offers an impressive array of 25 expansions covering a wide gamut of contemporary music styles and produced by the worlds top sound designers. So Whether you need the most powerful dance lead sounds to set the club on fire, or a full gregorian choir for your next masterpiece, NEXUS2 delivers.

    All of this may seem like it would be quite demanding on the system resources of your DAW, however, NEXUS2 is very frugal with the CPU and careful with your RAM. You can load multiple instances into your sequencer without worry and because NEXUS2 is coded with love and care for the end user you can rest assured that many instances can be used on modern systems simultaneously without sacrifice.

    NEXUS2 is also a very accessible instrument with contrast controls and several skins available which can change the appearance from black, to blue, to C64 beige, you can be sure you will find NEXUS2 not only a joy to hear but also a pleasing aesthetic vision.
    NEXUS2 includes these four different skins, so no matter which host you use, NEXUS2 will always look it's best and fit right in. Each instance remembers which skin was selected, so you can even use different skins for different tracks. How about using one of the black skins for the drums, but Cobalt for the bass and the white for the melody

    reFX - Trasher (FX)
    ReFX Trasher II is a nice tool if you want to mash-up your sounds.
    Reduce bit-depth, samplerate, add filter and distortion.
    All parameters can be LFO-modulated!

    Used JunoX2 (the one with the blue GUI) and Vanguard a lot in the past with Logic Platinum 5.2.0 :yes:
    Still have the dll files. When I made the switch to Mac I used Vanguard 1.8 until it wasn't compatible anymore due to 32-bit limitation.
    So it brings back memories!

    I have send you a PM.

    You need the " jBridge " Tool. The " Junox² " is a 32 Bit Plugin.
    Put the " Junox².dll " into the:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\VSTPlugins (or) C:\Program Files (x86)\Steinberg\VSTplugins
    Then use the " jBridge " Tool.

    In Vanguard there was a melody preset used by (or at least the same as) Tiga & Zyntherius - Sunglasses At Night (Shockers anthem 2002). :guru:
    Used JunoX2 especially for those rolling basslines that were recognizable for hardtrance music early 00's. Damn, that was fun to play with now I think about it.
