Plug-ins: Audio plug-in effects are a staple of every music production system, and reproduce the functionality of traditional, hardware-based effect units. The term ‘effects’ can bring to mind weird and wonderful sounds, but effects can also be much more subtle sound processors like compressors, EQs or even gating plug-ins. You could think of an effect as anything that changes a sound, regardless of the way in which it does it.
