How to install external plug-ins on Ableton through VST and AU formats.

Here's the list of my top FREE plugins that you can download now and install them in your Ableton.

TAL-Chorus-LX (Chorus Effect) Download here:

Softube Saturation Knob (Saturation Effect) Great for fattening up drums and bass, adding harmonics to vocals, and more. Download here:

OB-Xd (Synthesizer) is based on the Oberheim OB-X. It attempts to recreate its sound and behavior, but as the original was very limited in some important ways a number of things were added or altered to the original design. OB-Xd was designed to sound as good and as rich as the original. It implements micro random detuning which is a big part of that sound. Download here:

TyrellN6 (Synthesizer) is a compact, sporty synth. Based on concepts and ideas for a hardware synth: a few modules, novel features, analogue sound and low-cost. TyrellN6 is the software version manifestation of these ideas. Download here:

Charlatan is a polyphonic, subtractive virtual analog (VA) synthesizer plugin with focus on sound quality and easy usability. It comes with a flexible, yet not overwhelming feature set which encourages artists to start tweaking instead of just relying on presets.  Download here:

mvMeter2 is a multivariable meter including RMS, EBUR128, VU and PPM measurement. mvMeter2 is the successor of mvMeter and adds single/dual meter display, adjustable reference level for all meter modes, adjustable meter delay and preset management. Download here:
