i need to be able to create instruments like keyboards, strings, and other instruments all with the computer. then ill record my guitar along with it. im not sure, but i think it's called "synths."

i searched up synth creators oon google and got some stuff, but i was just wondering what is a really good and FREE synth creator?
there really aren't any, plus you really need to know what you are doing when writing softsynths I recommend Max/MSP.

If you just want to make synth parts for songs go to KVRaudio and they can sort you out with all of the stuff you need that's available for free without bootlegging.
make Industrial and/or experimental electronic music? Join my group!

don't bands usually do all that with an electronic keyboard? I actually have no idea so if I'm wrong don't make a big deal out of it.

If you pick up a Computer Music magazine, that will come with a DVD that has the CM Studio on it - a collection of free software for working on music.
