    A Waves bundle of Plug ins is most recomended. The renaisance EQ and compressor are really usefull. kind of 'must haves' on PT.


    P.S. I have to say this! - "Fard Q Icehole"!

    No offence!

    Hi Icehole,

    Jules is correct, the Waves plugs are good. I've never used PT free but you will presumably need the RTAS versions of the plugins.

    How you actually use these plugins, or outboard gear for that matter, to get what you want is a never ending search, even for those of us that have been at this for many years. Obviously the longer you've been doing this sort of thing, the quicker you will be able to home in on what's required and how to get it. But there is still a fair amount of playing around.
