Thanks for that link, I didn't know MFM was Shareware, thank you for putting me onto it! (It comes with a shareware license)

CRYSTAL

also The Kjaerhus Classic audio plugins, voxengo SPAN.

Minimogue is not a bad VA synth either for free (doesn't stack up to Arturia or G-Force paid emulationsbut it's free)

Possibly my favorite free plug in is Elotronix XL:

When you get the hang of this Frippertonics emulator there is so much you can do with it. I had 5 of these for 5 differenc instruments on different timing chains with a clean drum track to keep everything aligned. Even if you just put one on the master track you can get some whacked out stuff.

Let's not forget Vember Audio's Shortcircuit.
Very powerful for a free sampler (used to be commercial).

Thanks for the tip! I never understood what it does but I'll give it a second chance asap!
