They have a great search engine for their site which can break it down to exactly what you are looking for. And there are tons of freeware synths and such.

You can stop by GTG as well. He has a load of good synthes that are very well done.

While not free, and I haven't researched synths in awhile, I'll say that FL studios with Sytrus is quite a kickin pair.

FL studios gives you the sequencer for drums, loops, whatever, and sytrus gives you huge bunches of sounds that you can create. Plus a metric ton of sounds already created.

I use FL for my midi / soundfonts / synth / drum sequencing, then use reaper for recording, and it's been quite a nice workflow.

I purchased FL studio (fruity loops edition) for 99$, then picked up sytrus on a group buy for 50$. It may be more now.

I just remembered, FL studios gives you a few other synths along with the base package, i think. A subtractive synth, and maybe a few more. I know that some of their higher up ones are $$$ though.

So if i bought fruity loops could i use it in cubase?plus whcih edition of fl studio would you reccomend?

to be honest i dont exactly have a massive budget at the moment as im just startng out with my lptop,midi keyboard and a free copy of cubase le4 which came with my midi!

So any suggestions you feel may help would be greatly appreciated

I think you can rewire, or something similar. I've not had greatest luck with one inside another, so I usually work in FL, then export as a wave file, and drop it into reaper.

Yeah, the expense can be daunting, especially if you don't know for sure that the program / synth is exactly what you want.

I can't remember why I chose the FL version I did (fruity loops), but I know there were specific reasons on what I was getting. I can't remember now, as it was 4 or 5 years ago now.

I'm pretty sure Fl has a demo, and it probably has sytrus in there with it. You won't be able to save any project with sytrus in it, but you can play around with it.

100 meg, eesh.

On a similar vein, I know Noize and others have used Project with good success. I've not used it, but I think the price is comparable, so it may be something to look at.

As far as free synths, I used to float around looking for stuff, but with the ones I have now (FL and juno keyboard) i'm pretty set for synth.

* EDIT * Oh yeah, the HRC promo in my music profile was made with FL studio and reaper. The 2 synths are sytrus, and the drums were sequenced using FL.
