Azimuth by TheSynthFactory is a great-looking free software synth that offers both virtual analog synthesis and wavetables. Each of its four oscillators can be switched to either VA or WT mode. Furthermore, Azimuth offers a pair of multi-mode filters, two envelopes, three LFOs, and four master effects. A large X/Y pad lets you blend between different sounds and you can even record that movement for lots of interesting modulations and morphing sounds. Excellent stuff!

Azimuth is available for macOS and Windows in VST3 and AU formats.

Wavesfactory Flash: Free Transient Shaper

From the makers of Cassette, Echo Cat and other brilliant plugins comes Flash, a free, high-quality transient shaper. While it doesn’t offer all the bells and whistles of their flagship Quantum transient shaper, Flash is easy to use and lets you control transients using the familiar attack and sustain controls. It also offers M/S processing, a mix knob, and a clipping function for maintaining a maximum output level of 0 dB. An essential tool to have in your arsenal!

Flash is available for macOS and Windows in VST, VST3, AU, and AAX formats.

Amalgamated Signals Clean Machine: Dynamics Controller

Clean Machine by Amalgamated Signals lets you control dynamics using a combination of a compressor and saturator. It’s essentially a saturation plugin with a drive slider and added timing controls like you’d normally find on a compressor. There’s also a sidechain high pass filter, as well as mix and make-up gain controls. If you’re looking for a free dynamics plugin with a slightly different approach from your run-of-the-mill compressor, Clean Machine is worth a look!

Clean Machine is available for macOS and Windows in VST and AU formats.

    Clean Machine is probably the best free dynamics plug-in I’ve seen since FirComp 1 was released. If you want something that can kinda sound like both a Mu-comp and an all-buttons-in 1176 by just changing the release, this is it. The saturation is warm and full sounding, the onset of compression is never to sudden (since it has a very soft knee, and the ratio is dependant on the gain reduction), and the attack/release envelope is very smooth when you want it to be. Can’t recommend it enough!
