You could go looking for all of them or you could just focus on a list of the 25 best ones.
And thanks to Bedroom Producers Blog, this is exactly what we get. A list that covers virtual instruments and effects that work together with major plugin platforms (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) on Windows, Mac OS and Linux.
The list covers a lot more Mac-compatible plugins compared to lists from previous years. Another thing you’ll notice is the dominance of 64-bit platforms. There’s no plugin in the list that’s limited to 32-bit operating systems.
In addition to the 25 top plugins, BPB offers a bonus selection devoted to guitar amp modeling plugins.
Another thing to keep an eye on while going through the list is the mention of various additional recommended plugins, as well as honorable mentions featured underneath each section.
