Anyone know of any modelling programs or software that i can use for my MIDI keyboard? I checked out the pianoteq and it is great but does anyone know if there are programs like that but with different instrument sounds such as violins, choir aah, organ, and maybe even drums?
There are too many out there to name. More or less any instrument has a VST. Check out the site above for plenty of free ones.
There is poetry in despair.
Reason 4 is pretty darn cool. but its mostly for dance/trance/d&b/stuff.
Its not the best by any means but its good for that stuff.

I wouldn't recomend it for doing any form of rock based music.

Thanks for the posts. Are there any stand-alone programs that include orchestra instruments, choir , etc. in a preset bank? I am pretty new to the whole 'recording world' so thanks for the help
