The Best VST/DX Plugins ?

The Best VST/DX Plugins ?

Postby iNTERLuNe » Sat Sep 20, 2008 6:29 pm


I would like to use different VST/VSTi/DX Plugins on Renoise v1.91. I am looking for the best VST Plugins on PC, any ideas ? Furthermore, I need "real" instruments thanks to plugins for Renoise : Piano, Synth, Orchestral, Ensemble, Voices, Orchit, Violin...

Today, I use Absynth v4 with Renoise and it works good :-) I compose musics :

1°) New Age, Orchestral, Medieval, Romantic, Movies...
2°) Techno, House, Acid, Trance, HardTrance, HardCore...

Please help me to find my favourites plugins for Renoise !

Thanks & Greetings,

I can see you already visited the Renoise forums so referring you to the postings pinned there is redundant.

If you want to talk about what works well for folks and what doesn't, and have an irc client, visit channel #renoise on

VST luck may vary, and in the end it's a matter of personal taste. VSTs suck up my little computer's CPU very quickly so I find that I use convert-to-sample often, and usually just use the VSTs to make a very quick and basic sound.

Despite that, I know folks in #renoise that use the Native Instruments VSTs to decent effect, so there's a big pallet of sounds out there! Feel free to experiment and enjoy it, and welcome aboard!

For real world instruments I would recommend the East West Quantum Leap libraries.
Symphonic Orchestra Gold is a good place to start.

For electronic instruments try products by reFX or Linplug.
Vanguard is excellent.
Albino3 is very popular.
