The Free VST (effects) list!

THIS IS THE FREE EFFECTS LIST. The free VSTi (instruments) list can be found here - I've split them up for easier management.

THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. I'm not done with the basic framework - I just saved it so I can see what it looks like so far.

VST (or VSTi)
These are little programs that generate sounds and/or apply effects to sounds. A VST (Virtual Studio Technology) is an effect-applying program, while a VSTi (Virtual Studio Technology instrument)is a sound generating program. VST/is come in a .dll file though, not .exe. You have to load them up into a sequencer in order to use them - a good free one is Reaper.

New to music? Here's a tutorial I made for SpliceMusic.com - how to get started writing music with free software!

Here's a link for every free VST on kvraudio.com.

So you're going to list hundreds of VST's and VSTi's on this page? Insanity.

Why not? I'm already managing the program list, the fans list, and the list of lists, not to mention helping out with the Underdog list. What's one more list?

List, list, list, list, list. List.
My ship is listing.

If you don't feel like sifting through all of them, tweakbench.com has a fair few free VSTs, and they're not too bad.

I <3 tweakbench :D

I've also got some specifics, that I've gotten used to, if you want to list them?

Sure! Give me a list and their categories.
