During last two weeks I had plenty of time to rethink my priorities. The truth is that Vst Cafe takes just too much time to manage - my daily routine was visiting about 10 different forums, 20 websites searching for articles, tutorials, plugins etc. Actually Vst Cafe took almost 100 % of my spare time and as a result I didn't have time for my other hobbies such as music production, synth and vst programming. Also, I lost concept a little bit. After all, the amount of free plugins isn't unlimited and I really don't want to turn this site into 23412624562 great free plugins blog.

That's why I decided to stop updating it. Who knows, maybe one or two months later the situation will change, maybe Vst Cafe will evolve into something different but for now the site won't be updated anymore. Also, thank you for all of your donations - it really helped to at least partially cover the hosting bills, domains costs etc.

Goodbye or just See you soon!

ps. feel free to email me if you have some questions, ideas, dead link reports etc.

Damn...

I'm gutted but I emphatise with you totally G - I've been in that position before. It's a pity though, because I really looked forward to this blog whenever I return from work and turn on my PC.

All the best, and thanks!

That's too bad. But, thanks for finding all the great VSTs (and some fantastic tutorials as well).

Definitely keep the blog around - you never know when you might want to post at least once in a while.
