    Know where I can find any? For use with Cool Edit Pro?

    I'd really like a nice amp simulator for guitar w/distortion/decent tone. Or even a multi effects processor.

    Any recommendations for cool/free Direct X plugins would be cool beans.

    here are my favorite FREE DirectX plugins found on the net:

    DSound AW1 - Auto Wah

    iZotope Vinyl

    dB-T tempo delay

    OHM FORCE - Frohmage

    and a free pack from digilogue (called BLUE LINE or something...)

    good luck !

    Trust me: I tried that... a lot.

    Thanks everyone else.
  8. This site has links to just about every VST plugin out there, so there are quite a few free ones, you just have to find them.

    WOW, that VST wrapper will definatly come in handy! Thanks!
  10. Just found this on the aforementioned site, considering that you already have a DirectX VST wrapper you should really red this:


    EDIT: D'oh sometimes I'm pretty stupid... i looked at this site often and only now i see that there is actually a search function where you can select that you only want free plugins...

    Free: Simulanalog Guitar suite - www.simulanalog.org

    Suite of vst plugin with amplifiers and analog processors containing the simulation of:

    - Boss DS-1 (Distortion stompbox)
    - Boss SD-1 (Super Overdrive stompbox)
    - Tube Screamer (Overdrive stompbox)
    - Oberheim PS-1 (Phaser stompbox)
    - Univox Univibe (Modulations stompbox)
    - Fender Twin 1969 (Guitar amplifier)
    - Marshall JCM900 Dual Reverb (Guitar amplifier)

    Ugly UI, but great sounds.

    Commercial: NI Guitar Rig - amp modeling + effects

    Both VST, but with wrapper it might work as DX.

    Other quality free goodies (my best picks from trying dozens of plugins)
    reverb: http://www.sinusweb.de/freetoo.html
    delay: Bionic Delay http://www.interruptor.ch/vst_overview.shtml
    chorus: Classic Chorus http://www.kjaerhusaudio.com/
    compressor: Blockfish http://www.digitalfishphones.com/main.php?item=2&subItem=5

    Of course, YMMV..

    I remeber when I used Ntrack Studio, I got a plugin that allowed real time effects processing, anyone know any good real time effects?
  14. hmm, usually most DX and VST effects allow real time processing...

    iirc, in cooledit you have to add them to a track in multitrack mode (theres this tiny button that says FX next to the tracks volume fader and EQ button)
