A ton of great plugins come with any issue of Computer Music mag. If you buy the digital version, it only costs $5 (Apple News Stand/Google Play). You can then register your digital copy and get access to everything that normally comes on the DVD that is included with the print copy.

Some of my favorites are:

Dune (great multi-featured synth)
Enzyme (quirky wave-scanning synth that won several awards recently)
Barricade (excellent limiter)
Single Mault (subtle distortion)
Reverberate (convolution reverb)
Philta (low/high/band/notch filtering with very intuitive interface)

There are around 40 plugins that come with every issue, about half synths and half FX. It's the same plugins every issue, more or less, so buy any issue and you've got them all.

Full list is here: ... cts-571808
Win10/Intel i7 rig | Live 10 | MOTU 16A | DSI Prophet~6, Yamaha DX7S, Hypersynth Xenophone, Korg MS2000R and Electribe ER-1, Novation BassStation Rack and Circuit | 12U of Eurorack | variety of compressors and other outboard gear | Dune 3, Enzyme, Kontakt
