Some screenshots of free LIM Plugins collection

A collection of free audio plugins in VST3 and AU formats, developed by the bachelor students of my course “Development of technologies for music production”.
Being the result of students’ efforts, no responsibility is taken for their stability. However, some of them are quite impressive, for example, check out the MiniMOOD plugin: a virtual-analogue emulation of a famous synthesiser.


Also, the Colorizer is something I frequently use: a polyphonic resonator controlled via MIDI able to tune unpitched sounds like drums or natural soundscapes



The plugins are compatible with all Windows 64-bit host applications, and Mac OS 10.13 and above.

Some plugins come with an installer application, if this is not the case, copy the plugins to the appropriate folder:

macOS VST3 folder: ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3
macOS AU folder: ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components
Windows VST3 folder: C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3

Please note that the plugins are not digitally signed: if you have trouble running the plugin under macOS, try following these instructions, or (in case you are familiar with the Terminal) try typing the following in the os terminal (replace PluginFileName with the name of the downloaded files):

sudo xattr -d -r /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3/PluginFileName.vst3
sudo xattr -d -r /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/PluginFileName.component


You can find all the plugins for free on the website of the Laboratory of Music Informatics.
