WOW!... a plugins section all to it's self... cool!
I'm a bit like you Eric when it comes to plugin effects... like a kid in a toy store I love them lol
I hafta agree with you about Nyquist EQ
it may not look like much but you soon realize just how essential and how great this little FREE plugin is... so top marks for that one.
is just unbelievable and it's simplicity compared to other high-end and more expensive plugins is why this gets top marks again from me... not free tho but then Christian Knufinke who made the first SIR has put a lot of work into this one.. so it's well worth the support
iZotope Ozone 3
is a fantastic Mastering plugin... again simple to use but quite expensive but worth trying out the demo .... this is one that will be on my Christmas list!
