    Sorry, late reply, just noticed this thread now.

    Cakewalk is free but I don't really like it (or any other free sequencer software).

    I use Cubase Artist 10.5 and the full Native Instruments Komplete 12 which is great (+ some other VST instruments and commercial sample libraries). I used to be a guitarist in a band many years ago. Now with Guitar Rig Pro and a guitar to Midi interface it opens so many new ways of creating sound.

    In addition I use a Roland GAIA synthesizer and a Korg keyboard.

    For recording I use a Zoom R24 device which works great as Midi and audio and control interface. It allows recording 24 channels with various input options (like phantom power, guitar amplifications, mics, etc), works as drum machine, sampler, multifunction tuner and allows to operate Cubase with physical faders and buttons. As monitor speakers I use a pair of Tannoy 802.

    Good Midi keyboards for making sound on the computer are the Native Komplete Kontrol models like the S61 MK2, I will eventually purchase one soon (it's much more comfortable to control the Komplete software) but a new guitar is higher on the wish list right now.

    One software that was maybe not mentioned is Omnisphere, a real beast of sound creation software that has includes over 14000 sounds! I will get it sooner or later for sure, maybe instead of the LW upgrade if that takes much longer.

    Considering the latest update doesnīt do it for me, I can now safely spend it on..or at least justify to buy a new digital midi keyboard, and probably some blender addons, got a new fridge to spend on before summer so those 685 will partly be needed to cover that.
    Will look in to omnisphere as well.

    Thanks for your feedback

    Yes..I noticed a video of someone praising it..will look in to it too, but this tool canīt be too costly when you are just fiddling initially.

    Thanks for the comparative video, it's worth its weight in gold! I'll go check if there are other comparatives between these programs with other instruments, so that I can choose which one's appropriate for my project.

    Thereīs been more free uploads to the spitfire labs collection of instrument and sounds.

    I got to download them and check them aout, it takes up quite a bit of space on the harddrive though.

    Check all free stuff here, you need to register with email though.

    You can click on the card image for each instrument or sound and you will find out more about the recordings of the instrument as well as play a sample of how it will sound.

    The latest free stuff is Textural pads..

    All ...

    Reading notes are not that important, seems Benny Andersson the piano virtous and composer in Abba, and Vangelis donīt know how to read or write notes.

    All tracks here are a mix of ITB and outboard gear. Latest track "Mars" was written almost entirely on the Access Virus Ti and some samples. https://open.spotify.com/artist/3y6m7PFPkbSjKSxWlAvZDG

    Canīt listen to that unfortunately, donīt have spotify..and I am not really keen on signing up for free either right now..perhaps later.
    I wish I had more time, I had the plan to reduce 3D hobby work and go in to more of digital soundscaping..but I kind of lost track of my goals here, need to be more motivated
    before Iīll start taking the small steps.
    The first thing is to get me that digital midikeyboard, then keep the soundlibraries in order and start playing.
    Will have to look at some slick easy to plugin and good sounding speakers though, and not too expensive.

    And I wish you Good Luck on all the Lightwave plans..wether it only turns out to be movie projects, liberty3D training ..or getting the hands of the whole management for Lightwave
