Logic Pros Marketplace — FREE FX plug-ins, sound resources, and more

Initially born out of digging around the inter webs for boutique gear and some freebies while stuck indoors, Logic Pros Marketplace continues this year to highlight some great ways to find new inspiration in your Logic Pro setup. Alongside our hands-on Launchpad journey (Novation Launchpad Spring price drops still live) with Live Loops and the rest of Logic Pro’s latest features, it is always to nice to inject new sounds and add-ons to keep things fresh. Especially if you can uncover some interesting freebies and don’t have to pay the generally exorbitant prices some of this software fetches. While at first it seemed like the freebie train would eventually just run dry after the influx of pandemic-support offerings did, there still seems to be some new gear popping up, so dig in and see if anything catches your eye.
