    Which VST?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Greetings one and all...

    I'm wondering if someone could recommend a quality reverb, chorus and compressor VST plugins? I've tried a few free ones but really wasn't impressed. I'd rather pay for something with true quality. I'll be using them primarily in Sonar.

    Thanks in advance

    There are still a lot of sales going right now. Here is a link for some Waves effects. Waves: Audio Plugins for Mixing, Mastering & Recording
    FWIW, CLA-76 compressor and the API 2500 you can youtube for some reviews. For reverbs, you might check out Vahalla.

    ReaVerb is actually quite good (and free), as long as you use IR files with it. Let us know if you need some.

    As I'm totally new to this plugin thing, please bare with me at my lack of knowledge. I really don't know what IR files are. And for sure I'd like to see some... especially if they're free!!!

    Reverb wise I love Waves Renaissance

    Compressor wise I love T-Racks 670, but this is only available in a package, it sometimes comes up as a single buy on special.

    Limiter wise waves L2

    Bobby - IR files are the 'room' images used by the plug-in. In Reaverb, you select them from within the plug in. If you have ReaVerb, I can upload the IR folder to Dropbox. Without the IR files, ReaVerb doesn't sound like anything good!

    What is your budget?

    After years of experimenting, I have found my go-to with Waves H-Reverb, Soundtoys Microshift, and Waves API 2500.

    Also Fabfilter Pro-L and Pro-Q are staples for me. Just putting them out there. Will be buying the Fabfilter Pro-C soon.

    Wow!!! I really didn't think that there'd be so many comebacks recommending free VSTs to try out. Perhaps I should do exactly that before putting out money out on others. But I have kept tabs on the "pay for" others as well.

    Thanks so much for the replies... very much appreciated!!!
