QUESTION: which are the plug-ins you couldn't live without?

Over at Ask MusicRadar we're turning our attentions to the tech side of music-making by asking: which are the plug-ins you couldn't live without?

"Although it's easy to end up with a Mac or PC that contains an obscene number of plug-ins, most producers still retain a core list of favourites that they return to again and again."

"These may be workhorse effects and instruments that enable you to get things done quickly, or extra-special processors that add that all-important sparkle."

"MusicRadar is now seeking to compile the ultimate list of must-have plug-ins, so we need you to nominate your favourites."
