2011 Update: It looks as though another great set of free plug-ins have been discontinued. I’ll leave the post up for anyone who may be looking for a reference to the original Free Bundle. However, it is no longer available. Nomad Factory is still in business and making some great plug-ins which you can purchase at their website.

Nomad Bundle plug-ins
I came across this page at the Nomad Factory site offering their original (but discontinued) bundle.
Mac OSX Tiger Compatible and Windows 98/2000/XP Compatible. No support. But owners manual is at the download site.
The Nomad Bundle includes a Nomad-Phaser, Nomad-Sweeper, and Nomad-Tremolo. But do not let the “price” fool you! These plug-ins are serious pro audio tools by Nomad Factory. This means you still get the distinctive look and incredible sound you would come to expect from any Nomad Factory product. The classic effects in the Nomad Bundle allow you to instantly expand the creative possibilities for your recordings. Designed by musicians for musicians, the Free Bundle is an essential tool for your virtual studio.
