Good morning, and thanks a lot for visiting Midnightdrummer.com today!
If you play an instrument like the drums, you will probably record yourself from time to time using a pc, an audio interface, some microphones and your favorite DAW (digital audio workstation) to organize and mix the recordings.
But what do you do to record other instruments without owning them or being able to play them the way professional musicians can?
That's where VST plugins come into play and in this blog post I will show you the best VST plugins on sale!
