I swore I would never create this sort of post.
There are a lot of plugins out there. And there are plenty of websites reminding us all the time about the expensive plugins we “should” use.
It used to be the Waves plugins everyone insisted we should own. These days you can’t go anywhere online without someone jocking the UAD stuff!
You can burn a hole in your pocket pretty quickly chasing that “secret weapon” for your Projects.
And it can be a shaming experience for us home studio owners. Everywhere you turn we’re reminded that we don’t have the right stuff for great music. That we have:
- The wrong preamps
- The wrong DAW
- The wrong microphones
- The wrong interface/converters
It takes a disciplined soul to not get swept up in the plugin arms race.
Which is why I promised myself that I would never create this sort of post.
WLPR is all about how Logic Pro has everything you need to crank out great music. Many forum lurkers will tell you otherwise, but LPX is amazing.
So I promised myself WLPR would only focus on LPX’s amazing set of features.
Funny thing is though, many readers ask me to share my recommendations for 3rd party plugins.
I put off the request for a while. But in a recent survey I emailed, readers asking for 3rd party recommendations was significant.
So I took the bait. In today’s post I share my top 4 desert island 3rd party plugins. These are the plugins I’ve been using for a while now, and I seriously couldn’t imagine living without them.
These 4 plugins have withstood the test of time. Whereas I’ve spent thousands on plugins I don’t use ever. These 4 are in every session for one single reason:
They make my mixing life significantly easier and faster.
Enjoy! Next week we’ll return to our regularly scheduled program all about why Logic Pro rules 🙂
