But with more freeware plugins showing up on the scene every day, knowing which ones are worth your time isn’t easy. That’s why we’re bringing you our top picks for the most useful and creative free music software every month.

In this edition—analog compressors, sequenced filters, powerful synths and more.

Today’s roundup of free plugins includes creative modern effects and some old favourites with a fresh new look.

From the weighty sound of analog compression to futuristic sequenced effects, there’s something in this collection for every producer.

Here are the free plugins we loved in November.

1. TDR Molotok

TDR Molotok is a reimagining of the popular VladG Molot freeware compressor.

Molot is a highly coloured analog style compressor with a notoriously difficult front panel.

Even so, it gained a reputation as one of the most interesting sounding freeware compressors out there.

TDR has repackaged everything great about the original Molot into a more user friendly package with Molotok.

It’s a great choice if you need some more analog character in your compression.

2. TheWaveWarden Odin2

The Nordic-themed Odin2 synthesizer from TheWaveWarden is a new contender for the most advanced free synth plugin.

With an editable wavetable oscillator, loopable envelopes, multiple filter models and extensive modulation matrix, Odin2 pushes the boundaries of freeware.

On top of all that, it sounds great.

If you’re looking for a flexible synth that can cover lots of ground, Odin 2 is worth a try.

3. AudioModern Filterstep

There’s something instantly fun and creative about old school step sequencers.

The unique patterns and melodies that emerge can take you in unexpected directions.

That’s why AudioModern Filterstep is such an intriguing free VST.

It’s a rhythmic filter effect based on a tempo sync’d step sequencer that will get your tracks moving and shifting in time with your tracks.

Animate the cutoff frequency with up to 64 steps to turn boring static sounds into evolving patterns and textures.

4. Auburn Sounds Graillon

Pitch correction isn’t just a crutch, it’s a creative tool that can enhance ordinary vocals with a unique sound.

But brand name vocal tuners are some of the most expensive plugins out there.

Auburn Sounds Graillon offers pitch shifting and vocal tuning in a freeware plugin.

If you’re looking for a way to get the classic hard turning effects without paying a fortune, Graillon 2 could be the perfect choice.

5. Diginoiz Subdivine Lite

Diginoiz Subdivine Lite is a powerful 808-style bass synthesizer for extremely deep bass sounds.

Subdivine Lite is the freeware edition of Diginoiz’s flagship bass synth. The Lite edition contains six presets that cover the most important 808 tones.

It’s a great choice if you need a plugin for the subby, siney bass tone that’s all over hip-hop production.
