The 12 best FREE VST plugins

What’s better than a VST? How about a free VST?

VST’s (Virtual Studio Technology) are the workhorses of many independent artists out there.

And because we love all of our incredible unsigned artists so much (yes, aaawww) we’ve spent quite a bit of time scouring the internet to find you some of the best VST plugins around.

So, in honour of Mariah Carey, because just like she loves Christmas, we love giving things to our artists, we’ve created a list of 12 of the best, that are – wait for it – ALL FOR FREE!

By the way, if you don’t know what a VST is, get a full description here
