Freebie: 7 Free Audio Plugins That Will Improve Your Mixes
Audio mixer and instructor Jason Moss has compiled a list of 7 of his favorite free Audio Plug-ins that you can use to expand your plug-in library and not hurt your budget.
Jason Moss says:
Here are 7 of my favorite free plugins. Each of them offers something new and unique (no boring EQs or compressors). Download them all to extend your sonic palette and ultimately, craft better-sounding tracks.
I've listed 2 of them below and the reasons why Jason likes them. Click here to view the full list, download the free plugins and learn which 5 (not free) plug-ins he uses on almost every mix.
SPAN is a free real-time “fast Fourier transform” audio spectrum analyzer AU, AAX and VST plugin for professional music and audio production applications. For the most part it was derived from Voxengo GlissEQ dynamic parametric equalizer and reproduces its spectrum analysis functionality.
“SPAN is my favorite spectrum analyzer. You can control the ballistics and response of its graph, which makes it flexible enough for a wide variety of tasks. You can even route multiple tracks into SPAN and compare their frequency content.” – Jason Moss
Add that final polish to your mix with Neutrino, a free spectral shaping plug-in based on the new mixing technology featured in Neutron. Insert Neutrino on multiple tracks across your session to reveal a subtle amount of detail that can help elevate great mixes to a new level of refinement.
“Neutrino is the baby brother of Neutron—iZotope’s newest channel-strip plugin. While Neutron has a number of innovative features, Neutrino spins off the best of them. Neutrino tames undesirable resonances caused by poor room acoustics, cheap gear, and heavy-handed processing. iZotope calls the effect “spectral shaping,” and it can sound similar to gentle, low-ratio multiband compression. This can make tracks sound smoother and more polished—like sanding the rough edges off a freshly cut piece of wood. I find Neutrino particularly useful on electric guitar tracks, which often have lots of harsh resonances.” – Jason Moss
