Free Effects

The effects on this page are 100% free to download without any limitations. They have been carefully selected for their quality, stability and ease of use. In some cases, you will need to create an account using your email address to access the files.

In my opinion, they are as good as the stock plugins that come with Ableton Live, FL Studio, Logic Pro, Cubase, Studio One etc. Effects marked with an * are only available as part of a “bundle”, which can be several GB in size but are well worth installing.

You can filter the list by entering keywords in the search box. Click on the thumbnail images to enlarge.
