Default Looking for FX for audio tracks

Greetings,
I'm looking for FX suggestions for audio recording.
reverbs, compressor, gate, delay, combinator, chorus and maybe guitar effects.

Looking at the sea of available plugins in Reaper, not really seeing what I need.
Any help is appreciated. Are there downloads the are more "traditional"?

If you Google "VST plug-ins" you'll find thousands! ...Some free and some commercial. Some (most?) will work with REAPER, some won't. The commercial plug-ins usually list the officially supported hosts and with the free ones it's usually hit-or-miss.

Free bundles from MeldaProduction and Blue Cat Audio

Or get a copy of Computer Music magazine - loads of FX (and instruments) on the cover-mount DVD or downloadable from cm FileSilo.

If you ignore the "sea" of JSFX and just use the Cockos ones, that's all your bread and butter right there. You'll have to develop your palate through exhaustive taste-testing to find your preferred spices.

AmpliTube has a free version with basic amps and guitar fx.

Dead Duck

http://deadducksoftware.blogspot.com/

I'm surprised nobody has yet mentioned the Dead Duck suite of plug-in's ... one download gives you fairly much everything needed to get started.

Sure, the Reaper included plugs are great, but their multitude of parameters and industrial looking GUI might be a bit offputting for a newbie.

Sometimes simple is best - the 'KISS' approach ya know, (Keep It Simple Stupid)

The Dead Duck suite offers pretty much all the basic audio tools needed, and then some ... with a GUI of simple knobs buttons and switches. Nice old-school design and decent sounding plugs.

Totally FREE, operational, elegant in simplicity, ya can't go wrong ...
