Looks like we've had a few new folks join our little group lately. So welcome all! Please jump in and share about the VI's and plugs you use to make your tracks. We're always glad to hear from you! And if haven't yet, go to the Polls section and take our poll on what DAW you most use to create your tracks.

For and to anyone, looking/wanting to place individual or groups of Vsti's in the aural/sound field. I would very strongly recommend Parallax-Audio's Virtual Sound Stage 2.0. I am personally using said plugin, in an 7.1 Surround Sound setup in Logic Pro X , and it performs and sounds fantastically. Even w/ 30+ instances of the plugin, I've experienced no CPU spikes or ram issues. Screenshot of my Virtual Sound Stage 2.0 deployment : http://www.parallax-audio.com/

I was introduced to the "world" of MIDI several years back by a brilliant muso friend who put together backing tracks for theatre use. I was too involved with trying to improve my own accoustic music with guitar and vox to jump in to this technique of music creation. 10 years later, I now am loving the experience of what MIDI and Virtual Instruments can create! In particular, I am slanting toward orchestral composition. Rather a big challenge, but with plugins and sampling available at little cost (alot are indeed free), the sky is the limit! Through exploring the MIDI topic, I came across a BBC piece about Daphne Oram's 1960's Optical Synthesizer Oramics Machine This machine was certainly the start of the VI technology that has develloped to where it is today. She was ahead of her time. If you want to explore this method more, a modern "Oramics" machine is now available as an App! BBC Utube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJ08diPUv6A

What are the good free drum sequencers around these days? I'm guilty of using HammerHead for the last 20 years and that's probably odd.

Here's a chance to grab a super compressor plugin, worth $149 for free! [UPDATE - Okay, I found out it isn't FREE anymore...its all of $4.99, which is a pittance to pay for such a great plugin!] The Bus Driver compressor from Nomad Factory is a fine plug in...I use it often for its clean sound and light touch. Can't beat that price! See here for details: http://www.pro-tools-expert.com/home-page/2016/1/29/free-vintage-optical-compressor-worth-149
