If you have been reading my blog you will know I am a fan of free and affordable plugins. I’ve tried Waves and other ‘leading brands’ and I can’t see the justification in price with some in the range of £500+!
I stumbled across a company called Minimal System Instruments. It happened that the where giving away a few free plugins.
Ultracompressor a vintage compressor was up for grabs so I downloaded it. I’ve now used it on 3 mixes and it’s performed really well overall.

So they are super affordable and they happen to have a MASSIVE 50% off sale on right now until next month.
Prices range from £19.99 for a mixing and mastering suite down to £4.99 for a compressor!
What a steal they are! These are pro-level plugins and worth every penny.
Demo’s are available from the website http://minimalsystem.com/Store
I’m about to pull the trigger on a few of these. I don’t often buy plugins but with the sale I can’t pass these up.
Reviews coming soon…In the meantime grab a free plug and see for yourself.
[EDIT] 26th July 2013: Downloaded the demo version of MSI’s Master Compressor, wow what a great compressor for the master bus. Tried it on several mix sessions and the way it glues the tracks together is excellent! Also there is an added body to the mix with a smooth and more powerful impact overall. Best of all it’s half price at £4.99!!!! Deal! Very happy with this find.
