Finding new VSTs, weeding out ones that don't work or don't sound good, organizing; it's a never ending battle. Surely there's a better way to evaluate and recommend great free VSTs instead of falling into the black hole of searching KVR and the usual suspects all day. I don't have much extra time these days and neither should you! There's just shitloads of sorting, downloading, evaluating, failures: let's cut out all that wasted time.
I did this at a studio with many AM users and we just traded folders every so often and ransacked them. I suggest within here we list different subjects i.e. "dynamics", "reverb", "eq", "synth" or "instrument" etc. Then people post their fave compressors, EQ etc. Maybe let's first figure what categories people's VST folders fall into? Mine is organized by type. These are standard for everyone no?
I have others but I'd also be interested to hear about other organizational idea re: the VST folder.
