That's a tough one, my needs are pretty limited to EQ and dynamics, I
don't use a lot of effects and I am next to illiterate about synthesis of
any kind so the list will be short.

I'll have to admit to being a huge consumer/fan of the commercial linuxDSP
(now OverToneDSP) products but since: (a) The developer no longer supports
LV2 and (b) Seemingly he is quickly distancing himself from Linux support
even on the VST platform I guess talking about them is really not
beneficial in any forward-looking sense which is very unfortunate.

My 'desert island' list:


Steve Harris' - Fast Lookahead Limiter, Barry's Satan Maximizer
CAPS - Plate Reverb
Fons Adriaensen's - Stereo Reverb


Robin Gareus' - X42 Plugins set especially the FIL EQ LV2 version
Robin Gareus' - SetBfree Hammond B3 Emulation - Absolutely killer!
Calf Plugins  - Vintage Delay, Limiter, Rotary Speaker, Bass Enhancer,
Stereo Tools, Exciter, Saturator
falkTX - Carla Plugin Host for hosting SFZ, GIG and SF2 libraries
DISTRHO - TAL Dub, Reverbs and NoiseMaker, MVerb Reverb
Damien Zammit - GEQ31
Guitarix Team - VibroChump amp modeler, some good reverbs, delays,
tremolo's and fuzzes

I'm sure many would call this list inadequate but those are my go-to's.
