I just got my copy of DTM, a Japanese electronic music magazine, and they had a big issue this month on Free Stuff, with useful things like reviews and stats, and they were kind enough to dump a bunch of them on a DVD-ROM that comes with it.
Of course, being a Japanese electronic music magazine, you need to know the language to get the most out of it. But it’s a pretty interesting collection compared to some of the standard free VST recommendations out there. The most useful bit is the little graphic showing which plugins are 32/64 bit, and which are Mac/PC only. That’s the really useful bit for me, because I run Live in 64 bit mode exclusively. I have Reaper set in 32-bit mode, but I don’t use Reaper that much. That’s more like a “I have to record this ancient 32-bit plugin to a stem so I can work on it in Live!” kind of thing.
If you want to pick up a copy, go to Amazon Japan and search for DTM 3æœˆ2015å¹´.
