Escapist, music enthusiast, wannabe 3d environment artist and social retard. I've been a big fan of video games since I was a small kid. My favorite genres are FPS, RPG and the occasional racing game, although there are many exceptions. In general I love any game that has a strong atmosphere or I find otherwise immersive.

What is this based on? Doesn't this alpha/beta thing usually refer to individuals who (try to) dominate the group and others who don't care about it? Because if so, I've certainly come across many immature alpha-type people.

Self-built PC with Windows 7. Great price/performance ratio. I can do everything I ever want with it too, including graphics and audio so I can't think of a reason why I should really have a Mac :p

I have to mention though that my girlfriend has some kind of Macbook she bought 3 years ago and it still seems to run about as well as it did back then. I can't say the same about the Windows 7 laptop I bought around that time. That thing is incredibly slow these days, even though I've been regularly cleaning the registry and defragmenting disks, the kind of stuff that kept my Windows XP machine fast for some 5 years. Then again, my laptop is one of those cheapish ones with tons of OEM crap.

Wow at yourself, too :P That must be the most horrible group membership application I've seen. First you say you don't like the way we do things and then you suddenly want to be part of us. Desperate to get something to do, huh? :D Plus if you take things so seriously you get offended by such a harmless post I doubt you have a "clue whats fun" either.

I suppose you are looking for free software? :) I don't know of any free DAWs (apart from those on Linux) but you could try trackers. In my experience MadTracker 2 www.madtracker.org is the best free one out there.

Softsynths? I haven't gotten much into those yet but I reckon Texture would be good for ambient stuff (www.kvraudio.com/get/1002.html). Kore Player has some killer sounds too, but I'm not sure if it exactly can be called a synth. It seems to use a lot of CPU power too. If you however want to give it a try, it can be downloaded here www.native-instruments.com/index.php?id=koreplayer :)

Yeah, that happens from time to time :/
If you ever feel like Audacity isn't enough, you could try Kristal (http://www.kreatives.org/kristal/). It feels more like the professional programs out there but is free for non-commercial use. It's been a few years since I've used it but I recall it being pretty good.

In my experience Audacity is rather versatile for recording single sounds but it's just horrible for making music (multitracking etc). And I don't even want to think how it would be like to use it for mixing :)

Thanks, that was helpful :) I guess I'll just keep trying then.
T-RackS you say? It is surely good but I'll be using free plugins (some great stuff there, too!) for now as I'm going to get better equipment for recording first :)

How did you guys learn to mix and master? My problem is, the more I try or read stuff about it the more scared I become. It seems so complicated :/

I don't know how many of those in need of composers would actually find it, though.

The current idea doesn't sound too bad either - as long as you have energy and will to do it. I mean, that sounds like an awful lot of work, depending on the amount of available work, of course.

$350 isn't much for a drum kit like that :)
But I already have EZDrummer which currently is enough for me.

I really like the idea of more articles about VSTs. Many would probably benefit from those, assuming that I'm not the only noob around here.
