Free VST Plugins

If you’re looking for high-quality free VST plugins for Windows and Mac, this page is the right place for you.

Most of these plugins run within the digital audio workstation (DAW), providing additional functionality. They have a custom graphical user interface (GUI) with controls copying physical knobs that we find on audio hardware. Some VST’s even emulate the characteristics and structure of well known or rare hardware equipment.

The VST instruments produce audio, while the VST effect plugins will process audio data. In order to work, some VST effect plugins require MIDI. There is much to say about them, but I will not cover this topic here.

The free VST plugins archive at FLStudioMusic features a big selection of music production software tools. You find here hundreds of effect processors, such as reverbs, compressors, equalizers, filters, delays and more. But also VSTi/AU instruments such as synths, drum machines, sound modules (ROMplers), virtual emulations of analogue hardware, samplers and more.

From time to time, we also make lists with best plugins. An example is 8 best free drum kit VST plugins for finger drumming, offering our pick of the most useful drum machines. Or 10 free VST plugins to improve your music productions, with some of the best tools to get started into music production. But here you will also find software synthesizers, orchestral instruments, basses, piano VSTi and more.
