I'm completely opposed to piracy
I created this free resource page because I'm sick and tired of the same excuses "It's too expensive...", "I'll pay for it when I'm famous and make some money..." (yeah right!), "It's ok to hack if you are poor..."
If that sounds like you, please stop it!
Stealing and using pirate plugins is never ok. It's not moral and no matter what anyone famous says it's still wrong.
So, here's the solution. I'm compiling a vast array of free plugins and VSTs that are absolutely FREE for you to download. the best part is that you can be part of this too.
