Free Compressor and EQ – AU and VST plugins

As a continued reader of Computer Music magazine since it’s inception, I have always been a strong advocate for any budding computer music enthusiast diy home producer to get a subscription.

Now you’ll probably have noticed a banner or two on this site promoting this magazine and whilst it is true that this site benefits from these adds I have a genuine love of this magazine.

Apart from the great interviews, tutorials and honest reviews it has been the strength of their free plugins.

Two of the plugins that I have received are then Eareckon plugins.

The CM-EQUA 87 is a great eq plugin and it comes in VST and AU format.

I have used this plugin a lot, probably on more tracks than I can remember – I also own Waves and UAD plugins but I honestly can’t do with out this one – and if you are new to computer music you will find it valuable and damn easy to use.

The same applies to the CM-COMP 87 – it also comes in VST and AU formats.

It’s very simple to use and as a companion to the  CM-EQUA 87 it’s a treat.Screen Shot 2014-10-12 at 15.58.51
