One way or another, we need to test out new gadgets in life. Whether it is our phone, car, or simply the sound emulators that musicians use to make music on DAWs, we could all use a demo. Once a product with a high enough demand can be sold, companies begin to invest their earnings into marketing. You see marketing is smart and not necessarily an evil, but with marketing, like other processes we humans partake in, this type of marketing can unintentionally skew the opinions of the general public. People will tend to shell out their hard earned money for a brand even if that product wasn't necessarily the most helpful option.
And in the effort of doing so, those with said products tend to be quick to defend their massive spending by overhyping a certain brand and raising it's demand. So without further ado, here are the top ten most overrated plugins of all time.
Now yes you do have to make music that people want to hear, because damn I'm tired of low plays on my own music. But I'm still learning how to make arrangements and studying music theory. It's definitely not easy but I just simply can't afford all the plugins on this list, so I will try my best to produce amazing electronic music with just my freeware, packs, and free samples. There's a great quote: To find the best guitarist, take away all his strings and leave just one and see what he can do with just that. To get the best drummer, take all of his drums and leave them with just their snare and hear how much sound they can make with simply that. And to be the best DJ, take away all of your third-party software and only use stock plugins and see what your brain can produce.
