    I'm curious, I've seen this to a lesser extent, but is there any software that has effects. Like N-Track has a lame echo and reverb and compression... besides that, nadda. What's the coolest effect type dealy software?

    There are tons of cool DirectX and VST FX plugins available. The Waves plugins are among the best, but very pricey. They are also serious cpu hogs, especially the (very very good) reverbs www.waves.com

    All the top DAW programs have good FX, Logic, Cubase, Nuendo, Samplitude, Wavelab, Sonar.

    WaveWarp is a cool program that enables you to create your own FX: http://www.soundslogical.com/

    There are some programs that can host FX without having to use a big DAW host software, e.g. VST Processor http://www.soundburst.com/vstprocessor.html

    You can even use DirectX effects in Winamp with the AdaptX plugin http://www.winamp.com/plugins/browse.jhtml?categoryName=DSP/Effect

    There are also adaptors for those who want to use VST effects in programs that can only handle DirectX plugins.

    Hey Bigfeet, I don't understand this? :confused: Is there a program to download there or anything all I see is a bunch of charts and settings.
     
  4. ...It is a software actually, that just shows you some of its features... It's pretty cool, so far I've just heard it synthesize drum beats and guitar, but it should sound very good with bass.

    It's from Creamware

    Err I don't wanna buy new hardware. I mean... well more along the lines of what JMX is talking about. I'm recording stuff direct through the computers mic port, I need toys for that.

    Perhaps you can find some goodies here:

    DirectX:
    http://www.directxfiles.com/plugins.htm (at least some of them are free)

    VST (use a wrapper/adapter if your software can't handle VST - FXpansion's adapter is excellent, but costs money (unless you, er, "find" it... hum :rolleyes: ;)). SpinAudio has a rather crappy one, but it is free - http://www.spinaudio.com/cgi-bin/redirect.pl?freestuff/wrlite.exe):
    http://209.211.248.205/software/vstplugs/p1.cfm

    Of those on the VST page, I've only tried Bo Johansen's and Maxim's plugs... some of them are pretty neat. Outstanding value, anyway! :D
