I'm sure most of you dreaming to add that analog warmth to your song but have not enough budget even for plugins. So here you go:

1. SGA1566 Tube Preamp

Shattered Glass Audio’s SGA 1566 gives you a single channel vintage tube preamp. The whole circuit is simulated in real time to get you that authentic analog sound.

2. TDR Slick EQ

The TDR Slick EQ is a sleek easy-to-use three-band EQ that gives you amazing sound — like all Tokyo Dawn Records plugins.

3. Ace Amp

Ace Amp — another Shattered Glass Audio creation — is based on classic 1950s style tube amps.

4. Molot Compressor

Vladg’s Molot is a compressor with character. Even the vintage Soviet look is on point.

5. Voxengo Tube Amp

Voxengo’s Tube Amp gives you warm overdrive, fuzzy distortion and everything in between.

6. MJUC jr. Compressor

Klanghelm’s MJUC jr. compressor is simple and elegant. Use it for smooth compression or a heavier pumping effect. MJUC jr. is based on vintage compressors of the 1960s –– it even looks like one.

7. Softube Saturation Knob

This Saturation Knob is one the best free analog emulation plugins out there. Even Dave Pensado gives it two thumbs up!

8. Variety of Sound Ferric TDS

As far as the best free saturation and tape simulation plug-ins go, Variety of Sound has a few options. Ferric TDS might be the most fully featured freeware saturation plug-in on the market.

9. Togu Audio Line TAL-Tube

TAL’s lineup of freeware plug-ins is quite impressive, and their simple saturator comes with some pretty useful features. Four controls let you adjust input/output gain, the amount of drive, and by far the coolest feature – the dry/wet mix.

10. Klanghelm IVGI

You can tell that Klanghelm really put some love into this one, because IVGI provides the capability to tailor the saturation like few others. It’s not just distortion thrown on top of your track, it lives and breathes with it, responding dynamically.
