The top 3 AUv3 plugins I can't live without are...

edited February 2018 in General

I thought it might be fun for us to share the top 3 AUv3 plugins we (currently) can't live without, and use in almost every project.

My (curent) top 3 is:

  1. FAC Chorus (FX)
  2. Poison-202 (Synth)
  3. Rough Rider (FX) FREE

AUv3s only please, and you only get to pick 3!

    Thanks @Audiogus

    FAC Chorus is like my secret sauce. It makes everything just taste sound better
    ..so on this basis I should probably get Maxima and give it a spin :)

    I do love Zeeon, but just don't find it as essential in the music I am making at the moment (it's still in my top 10)

    p.s. FAC stands for Fred Anton Corvest, the developer of FAC Chorus and FAC Maxima

  • Tried to make a list, there isn't even one i couldn't live without.

    in that case, just list the 3 you use most frequently.

    Your 'go to' plugins for every project

    Lo-Fly Dirt - punchy drums
    Rough Rider- easy to work compression
    QuatroMod- my fab chorus sound so far

    Pretty sure that phrase was being used for dramatic effect. ;)

    To me Maxima is amazing in it's simple effectiveness. I dare not rave too highly about it though as 'thar be pro's in these waters' but I find it to be a wonderful big red shiny 'make tracks better now' button.

    I do love Zeeon, but just don't find it as essential in the music I am making at the moment (it's still in my top 10)

    Currently making down tempo dork surrealism so Zeeon works great!

    I am naming my first born FAC.

  • No i literally mean i don't really rate AUv3 plugins that highly.
    There are some amazing synths but i am a samplist and there is no better sampler than Beatmakers built in.
    I love the idea of AU MIDI plugins, but because they simply don't work at all yet unless you render them to MIDI, then I can't really count those.
    Every effect i have tried has been on par or worse than Beatmakers built in, other than dynamics which is totally .....be polite be polite..... not that great in Beatmaker, so i should probably buy Maxima, his chorus is nice enough.

  • FAC Chorus
    Bram Bos - Rozetta Sequencer Suite
    Audio Damage Discord 4

    Yes I know Discord 4 is brand spanking new, BUT I definately like what I am hearing when using it ( especially on Future Drummer and Axon2 )

    FAC Maxima is a must as well but you were only asking for 3 🙃

    Got some BDay money and looking forward to getting it tomorrow. I am thinking I may get PPG Infinite to go with it too.

    Happy BDay...
    @brambos has a new AUv3 going to hit the Apple Store any time now, might want to save some of that BDay cash until then 🤔

  • Since I’m broke I don’t have many yet and I’m very selective to my tools. I don’t just buy them all. Usually on a use case scenario.

    Right now these are:
    Brusfi by KLEVGRAND (cleans up field recordings and a lot more)
    VirtualRoom AU (this is a secret beast not just binaural stuff)
    KQDixie (Because I never played with a DX7 and patches are all over the web and FM Synthesis is a great choice for sound design)

    I would have added so many more, but three is the limit.

  • I am more into synths :
    Zeeon
    ISem
    Poison 202

    I haven’t bought maxima yet. Do people tend to use that on individual stems or on the master bus?

    I use it on both.
