This is obviously hypothetical, but if you were doing all the sound editing for a short film and were only allowed five plugins, which five would you choose? This isn't about mixing or music - you would be editing & preparing elements for a film mix:
- production sound/dialogue and ADR
- sound effects
Presume there are no built in plug ins so eg if you want to use the PT AudioSuite Gain plug in, then you'd have to list it as one of your five....
