Here's another freebie, that I really like. I posted it in another thread, but you can add it here, if you like:
http://dsp.sonimus.com/products/soneq/

Has a sort of analogue eq vibe, the saturation can be nice, too.

Awesome, wish it were RTAS so I could try it out. Thanks


Getting caught up now  with updating what's listed above

Tried this one today, and found it really nice on a lead vocal: http://vladgsound.wordpress.com/plugins/limiter6/

It's designated for mastering, but I haven't tried it on mixbuss duties. On vocals, though it did a great job of bringing a vocal forward and evening it out, without getting sibilant. Donationware, but no limits on freebie use.

The "clipper" sounds really interesting. This is the first time I've come across of an actual clipper plugin.

Yeah, it's gotten some really good reviews over at GS in the mastering forum, but I haven't used it in that context. Worked great on vocals, if you want a super up front sound. Be sure to edit out any pops, licked lips, etc, or they become really loud!

I just tried that thing on a master and it works! Sounds slightly less mushy than normal digital clipping (how?), and the low end retains
little bit more punchiness. Wow.

Thanks to everyone who helped with this list so far. I have a ton of new plugins to try (And just made any upcoming mixes that much harder....).

I have been playing with this guys VST plugins since 2005 or so, when I stumbled across the NyquistEq (back when all I had was a dell with a sound blaster and a Casio digital synth from the 80's).

Here is the link. http://magnus.smartelectronix.com/

Hey guys, this guy http://sirelliot.wordpress.com/category/main-page/vst-plug-ins/ makes some amazing free stuff that get's used everyday along with my expensive stuff.
This other one makes very good verbs and an excellent transparent eq http://www.signaldust.com/
Enjoy
-Just remembered this http://j1000.in.rs/ Not sure if you've heard of him
First plug he made was a freeware version of the Portico, later he added filters to it. All the stuff he makes sounds great
