Look at an old photo of a recording studio from the 1970s & it is likely you will see a jumble of outboard gear housed in ugly looking rackmounts and connected using a tangle of cables. The digital age means it is no longer necessary to buy, house and maintain a huge rack of outboard processors. Powerful and great-sounding software versions of effects such as reverb, tube & tape simulators, delay, distortion, filters, EQ, tube amp simulators, and compressors are now available. Many come as bundles, such as the Waves Horizon TDM collection, others are single standalone effects which allows you to mix and match what you want. Many effects plugins are authentic software reproductions of the classic effects and consoles used in the world's top studios and are a fraction of the price of the "real" thing. All our effects plugins are supported by our price & satisfaction guarantees and free standard shipping now applies to all orders over $25, including many heavy items.
