The SQ8L is a software (VST) model of Ensoniq's classic 1980s
synth SQ80. The SQ80 features 3 digital wavetable oscillators
for each of its 8 voices which are fed through analog 4-pole
lowpass filters (-24dB gain) with resonance. Sound parameters can
be modulated by 4 envelopes, 3 LFOs and several MIDI sources.
The SQ80 also has a predecessor, the ESQ1, which can do most of
the same stuff.
 i have a esq 1 sitting right across from me in my room andi can control it theu midi in fruity loops. so i can compare the sounds from this wiht the true hardware and it is spot on. even the bells have that up high resonace from that is made withe th curtis chips in the esq. and the sq8 can even do all teh crazy digtal noise thru the filter. so ther is not a single reason not to add this one to your collection. i love it adn give a great job to the deisgners of these vst they hit the nail on the head

the fish fillets

going to start posting some mof my favorites that are free and thta i have actully used so i know they are worht there weight. the first one is from digital fish phones, called the fish fillets. the best of the catch is block fish with this and the free camel audio compresser you can cover just about any need  you have with these single band compressers. block fish is a versatile compressor with countless ways to shape the incoming audio. Unlike many other digital compressors, blockfish  has soul with the tube and air controls you can tune in on a frequency and really make it shine.

the next one is spit fish it is mainly for when your recording vocals and the singer is popping the mic too hard
spitfish is a dead-easy to use de-esser, aimed mainly at mono or stereo vocal tracks. Just like classic analog de-essers, this unit dynamically filters out harsh, annoying s-like sounds that would otherwise 'spit' in your face. i have used this on serval sessions and can say i am very pleased with it. if you are doing vocal tracks i highly recommend you give it a try.

the other one is super great for drum tracks adn gettign that pumping sound on vocals and compressed instruments. floor fish is a simple expander / gate device, easy to set up and offers a broad variety of processing, ranging from slight expansion, backgound noise attenuation to extreme gating effects.
What's different from similar units is the ability to scan the source and adjust the transistion curve accordingly.
i like to heavy compress drums and distort them then use this to gate it to your just gettgin traces of the sound really makes the drums stand out without the noise level and feedback drowning out the rest of your tracks. 

give them a try
