Essential Machines: It's recommended you use these machines. They are generally high-quality, tested and stable. Feel confident to use them in all your work. Currently (as of 29-07-2009), these machines are not included with the installer. You will need to download them from the links provided.

Machine blacklist: Buzz was a pioneer in the use of third-party plug-ins. Over the years, many developers and coders have contributed to the wealth of effects and generators we have today. Unfortunately, a few are flawed, buggy or just not up to the expected level of quality. Certain buggy machines can cause Buzz to slow down, glitch, or even crash. They must not be used by novice users. Experienced users should know better!
