I added "Magical 8bit Plug- http://www.ymck.net/english/download/index.html - plug-in style synthesizer for making 8bit chiptune music, for VSTi supporting applications".
If you think you found something worth adding, you can post it in this thread with a short description and I might get to including it some day. X)

Also, Reaktor is a very expensive and complex piece of software, if you have it on your machine and don't know what you're doing, then you're pretty obviously using a pirated version.

If you want to use a modular synthesis application that is free, then go for Puredata :
Downloads here : http://puredata.info/downloads (get pd-extended, it comes with more objects)
Beginner tutorials here : http://obiwannabe.co.uk/html/music/musictuts.html
Code: [Select]
<Gaeel> I love you Dataflashsabot!
<Dataflashsabot> I love you too Gaeel!
<Gaeel> Wait are we really having this conversation?
<Dataflashsabot> I think we might be a figment of Gaeel's twisted imagination...

I've shortened a few of the urls so it doesn't generate scrollbars. :)

Um, does anyone have a link to that big sample pack from Nifflas? It had a whole bunch of useful stuff in it, but I can't find the link anywhere.

EDIT: Never mind, I found it. This is the link, if anyone's curious.

Sorry for asking such a stupid question... But are there plugins for MMF?

No. These VST plugins are music plugins for music creation software.

Thanks.
I'm assuming these will work with FL Studio? (VSTs)

Tweakbench is nice.
