    Title says it all....as someone who tends to work mostly with freeware plugins I'm curious what you guys would consider your top 3 commercial plugins (whether it's some waves bundle or just a 10€ independent developer product) that you just can't live without anymore? Comps, FX, Drum Software, EQs, Mastering Stuff, anything.

    Mine are aptrigga, Steven Slate Drums & Metal Machine EZX. Couldn't live without any of them.

    Desert Island? As in "I can only use those 3 besides the stock plugins of my DAW for mixing"?
    - Waves CLA Compressors
    - Valhalla VintageVerb. No, wait, VRoom. No, wait, VintageVerb, No, wait... can't decide :)
    - Waves SSL Bundle (on the Desert Island mostly for the Buss Compressor, but the G-Channel is so convenient to use)

    If I had nothing to mix and it would be just me and my guitar jamming under the palmtrees:
    - Superior Drummer
    - Amplitube (/w the Orange amps)

    convert shells to MIDI for easy velocity adjustment.

    The latest version of DRT converts abut 97% of the samples to midi accurately in my experience, so If I'm blending sample with drum mics, there are about 3% of the MIDI notes that I'll have to phase align manually.

    Worth it in my opinion, since it's so fast doing velocity automation for the samples.
