My copy of Movie Studio Platinum included at least three – EQ, Compressor, and Gate (I think). I don’t really use them. I find that they are already assigned to each audio track and I go in and remove them. I don’t find them to be very useful and they don’t sound very good. But in all fairness, I haven’t really tried to use them very much to see if they can sound better.
I was well into audio editing long before I ever got into video editing so I have a bunch of audio plug-ins already, some free, some not. I have my favorites and find myself using them in Vegas in place of the included ones.
If you are looking for free plugins that work great and still sound really good, check out http://www.cockos.com/reaper/reaplugs/ They are some great sounding plugs and are amazing for free plug-ins. The multi-band compressor is great, the “reafir” noise reduction plug-in is fantastic, the EQ is great, and so on.
You should also check out http://www.luxonix.com/home/en/products.html?id=lfx1310 for a great free reverb. This reverb plug-in sounds better than a lot of paid for reverbs.
Have fun learning what all they can do.
