Discovered these free plugs

I´m always hunting for comprehensive FX plug-ins, and I´m especially interested when they are free! 😉

As allways when it comes to freebies, it´s the question of what You get for “nothing”.
Cockes Inc. offer a free download of their VST FX Suite, which normally comes
with their REAPER DAW.  If someone´s giving away this bundle for free, it´s worth
giving them the props they deserve.
Here´s the link:
