There are many amp simulators but you knw… there’s never too much of them
1studio put for free one very nice amp sim for guitar:
Features several amps heads (Clean, British A, British B and Modern) and a cabinet simulator (click on the “REVOLUTIONZ” logo to open the cabinet menu. It have several impulses to choose from (American, British, Classic, Combo, Dark, DI Cab Live and Ultra which emulate Behringer GI100 Ultra G Active DI Box, and Soft) but you can load your own impulses also
Tried it and seems to be stable in my DAW (Mu.Lab) and made a fast demo loading 4 instances if it without any overload or errors:
HERE you can listen a short demo I made.
The creator of that VST was under “crackers” attack and his commercial plugins were distributed illegally, so, you can help him to regain his trust in human race by donating some money (he have a “donate” button under the plugin).

I’m totally but TOTALLY blown away by Freeverb3
Probably the best impulse response convolution reverb I’ve ever had !!!
Actually this is a software suite, including Freeverb, Impulser, NVerb, Stereo Enhancer and a nice compressor. All amazing, all free.
The best (for me) is the impulser, which can load also cabinet impulses, a really golden tool for guitarists.

BoomComb is a tuneable comb filter VST2 .4 plugin.
A comb filter a delay based effect where it feedsback a delayed version of itself. Because of this it can create an effect similar to a flanger and can also give resonation type effects. The delay time of the comb is specified in Hz rather than time this allows the delay time can also be set via MIDI input from the key pressed and the pitch can also be bent using the pitch wheel, this allows the effect to be played like an instrument.
BoomComb can be used as like a flange like effect or can be used like a resonator with the frequency controlled by midi. It can also be used to create string like sounds via inputting noise in it. Another use is it can be used to add space to a sound and can be useful for spicing up synthetic drum sounds to make them sound a little more interesting.

Ever wanted an easy fix that can help your vocals cut through the mix? Do you want your vocals to sound wider without double-tracking and without having a nasty chorus effect? Here’s a plugin that can give you a head start.
September Free Plugin – Vocal Spread
It spreads out the signal across the stereo track, which can help the vocals stir clear of the muddy areas (like bass and kick in the middle) while keeping the vocals bright and centered. I’ve added a ‘body’ control which works the same way as in HUE -X in case you want the sound to be more upfront, since spreading may cause it to sound lighter (e.g. for the main vocals).
