Online Guides: Plug-ins

More people than ever are now convinced of the advantages of plug-ins. Why?

Welcome to our Effects Plug-ins Online Advisor.

We all know that it’s now possible to record, mix and master inside your computer or Digital Audio Workstation (DAW), but what if you want to insert an effect into a track within your project? Although it’s possible to send audio to and from traditional outboard from your DAW, most recording software comes bundled with software equivalents offering effects and processing such as EQ, compression and reverb, commonly referred to as ‘plug-ins’. In addition to your recording software’s standard plug-ins, there are many third party developers with a huge range of effects to choose from.

This guide aims to explain the basics surrounding the use of effects plug-ins in your recordings, and will hopefully assist you in their selection, and in understanding the enormous possibilities they create in the studio.

Our Online Advisor extends to several pages - you can jump from section to section using the index below or the navigation at the bottom of each page.
