though I have a few tuners I seem to use this one more than all of the rest combined. I like the bold face.

Nothing fancy, just basic Tuner.

Its very consistent across entire sound range but its max +0.2 HZ ~ +1 cent off. Sometimes less but never goes more up then +0.2 HZ. I think its good for free tuner.

It displays frequency with 2 decimal points while another free tuner from Melda just 1 decimal point.

You can definitely use it. It will do the work.

An excellent free plug-in which I use on every project as Cubase doesn't include this feature.

Perfect basic clipper with nothing less than what you need and nothing more to get in your way.

Hard knee with no oversampling for harsh digital clipping when you want it. Soft knee with oversampling enabled for a clean, basic tube-esque distortion that works greats with unsubtle saturation on drum buses.

I'm giving this a 10 because it's super unique. It's basically a delay with an integrated compressor. I'll try to do it justice, but you really should just try it for yourself. I don't know of any other delay that ducks the delay line in favor of the dry signal.

The best thing about this, the thing that sets it apart from other delays, is that you can make really strong delay lines (i.e. high in level, relative to the dry signal) without it overwhelming the dry signal. Brilliant. However, as with any heavy-handed compression, do be aware that it can create a pretty audible "pumping." And even a sort of "clicking," especially material with prominent transients. So it's definitely not appropriate for any material where you don't want that. But when you're okay with that, this thing rocks. I think the best use of this is on material that is syncopated (i.e. not just straight eights or quarters), and when you use a note value that it something other than what you can set in most tempo-synced delays (the common stuff - 1/4, 3/16, 3/8 etc). Go for odd stuff like 5/16, 5/32, 15/64 – crazy stuff like that. This thing will start making reeeeaaallly unique rhythms. Put two or more together, serially, or in stereo tandem. And things can get really wild. Creative opportunities abound.

Some people won't use this because the delay is not tempo-synced: big mistake. Read my review of GDelay. Everything I said there applies to this one even more. Learn to use Excel and do basic mathematical functions. Your music will thank you.

And as with all GVST's stuff, it's very CPU-friendly. Barely even registers on my CPU meter.

Suggestion for improvement: it would be nice if you could opt to duck the dry signal in favor of the wet signal. That could be very cool.

This is another great, free, simple, extremely CPU-efficient plugin from GVST.

The resonance sounds great, from barely noticeable to screaming, and having both the low cut and hi cut in one plugin really simplifies things when you're trying to dial in just the right amount of resonance at just the right frequencies. On a bass instrument try setting the low cut at anywhere from 40-60, and the high cut somewhere around 400-600 and then dialing up the resonance. Or do an aux/send and do more extreme settings plus adding some distortion. Either way, it's often a great way to help your bass cut through a mix in the low mids. Just keep in mind that lots of resonance will increase the "peakiness" of your bass signal, so you may want to address that with a compressor post-filter.

I know a lot of people, myself included, often high pass (aka low cut) almost everything in a mix that is not really a bass instrument, or more accurately, anything that doesn't have a whole lot of energy under 200 hz, plays more of a supporting role, and doesn't really need to sound "real" and/or full-bodied. Synth pads, backing vocals, upper register melodies, higher-octave tuned percussion, pretty much all percussion except possibly membranophones etc. It just frees up so much room on the bottom end for bass, kick, piano, guitars, vocals etc. This is where having a low-CPU bandpass filter is indispensable. And having a simple interface with easily tweakable controls makes it all that much easier to get in the habit of automating filters to open and close as the mix dictates.

One thing that I think could greatly improve this product is a trim that goes down to complete silence, as GFader does. I currently have either GBand, GFader or both, loaded on the majority of my audio and instrument tracks. It sure would be really nice to reduce that to just one. Maybe in the next version?
