I’ve managed to encourage a collaborator to move to mixbus or ardour so we can share projects. The problem is she uses a Mac and I use Linux. I want to be able to work on her projects using the same plugins she uses for now. Which plugins might be good?
Probably only really after a half decent, eq, reverb, delay, compressor. The Calf plugins have a pretty intuitive interface for beginners are they, or something similar available on OSX. I think a simple interface will really help. The built in ardour plugins are great, but not very easy to use if you don’t have a firm grasp on the basics (all because of the interface… or lack thereof!)
The aim is actually to teach her how to use a DAW to record her own demos, so the ability to share session files to see what she’s been up to and offer advice would be great. We’ve been trying with logic for ages, but I don’t have a mac or logic at home so that makes things a little more tricky. Last time I recorded her she was asking about Ardour which I was using and we’ve decided to give it a go, but if we were both able to use the same plugins (at least initially) that would be great.
So… any good cross platform plugin recommendations?
(also she has very little money, so the mixbus plugins are great, but quite pricey, so probably not a great choice in this particular case)
