NOW MAC Version is MORE STABLE!!!!.........

This editor can record and play sounds and import and export WAV, AIFF, MP3, and OGG files. Edit your sounds using cut, copy, and paste features (with unlimited undo functionality), mix tracks, or apply effects to your recordings. The program also has a built-in amplitude-envelope editor, a customizable spectrogram mode, and a frequency-analysis window for audio-analysis applications. Built-in effects include bass boost, wah wah, and noise removal, and the program also supports VST plug-in effects. This program is open-source, and this version adds tool tips, keyboard shortcuts, and OGG exporting and fixes some bugs.

MULTI-TRACK, VST FX ...and FREE :shock: .....NUFF SAID!!!!!!!!!

4. WavePad 1.2-(PC)
http://www.nch.com.au/wavepad/index.html

The program supports a variety of audio formats, including MP3, WAV, n WMA, it also includes a CD ripping. Once you open a file or begin recording via your sound card, you'll see a large rendering of the waveform, and you can choose to apply edits to the entire track or only parts. The application lets you open several files at once n move sound fragments among them, n the inclusion of a batch-conversion utility is a nice touch. WavePad offers a decent number of basic effects, such as noise reduction, fading, amplification, echo, n reverb. You can preview any edits before saving. All told, this utility's many capabilities n lack of restrictions make it fine for anyone but very advanced audio junkies.

This just may be the best free synth out there. I can't believe I didn't try this sooner. The sound is so rich and fat, it's just beautiful. I can't believe it's free! :)

Superwave comes with a list of midi CC's so you can set your controller for controlling the parameters, which is a very nice feature for a free softsynth.

The presets are excellent and really showcase Superwave's ability to do rich analog sounds. The brassy sounds are some of the nicest I have heard in a virtual synth. This synth is a great choice for trance sounds, but I'm using it for pads n sweeps ETC.

24. Loop Horse 3-(PC)
http://www.zealey.co.uk/

Image

Loop Horse is a media manager specifically designed for organising and bulk copying files. Files can be ‘auditioned’ and then cued up for copying in one go. The files can be copied from multiple locations on your hard drive, external media or in zip/rar archives. Files can be cued up and copied from any destination as long as they are present on your system. (Files on removable media must be in the drive.) The tool is useful for music producers who use loops and samples in their compositions. Ever find yourself copying a whole bunch of samples from a sample CD or magazine cover-mount to your drive, that you hardly ever use? Ever copied a folder of 100 bass drums, just in case? Save valuable hard disc space and search time by auditioning the files and only copying the ones that sound viable. You can also check the recording quality, bit rate etc. Maybe you just want to make up a new compilation for you portable MP3 player! Loop Horse will calculate the overall size of the files waiting to be copied. The software includes basic WAV loop editing & BPM calculation. Files without BPM information can be renamed with the additional info.

SORRY THIS SOLUTION AINT FREE...............
I think it's Like $99.00 (PC n MAC)---but WHOA!!!! it DOES CARBON AND ALL that!!!!!! IF U USE PROTOOLS U WANT!........AND NEED THIS..........

VST FX or VSTI INSTRUMENTS WORK VERY WELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sound on Sound SAID....................
What's the most annoying feature of the music software world? Plug-in incompatibility between different platforms must be a leading candidate, and if Pro Tools supported the VST standard you'd have access to so many free plug-ins it wouldn't be possible to list them here. London-based software developers FXpansion have been working steadily to make a mockery of this continuing bugbear by releasing too-good-to-be-true utilities for converting between formats. So far they've produced VST-to-Audio Units and VST-to-Direct X adaptors, both of which bring a large number of VST plug-ins to AU- and DX-based software studios. On October 17th, the company announced that they were only about a month away from releasing a VST-to-RTAS converter for Pro Tools. This is not going to be a stand-alone wrapper like we've seen before in OS 9; this will be a solid professional product that makes VST plug-ins look like RTAS ones to the host applications. VST Instruments and effects will open up in Pro Tools as if they were directly compatible. Look out for an SOS review of all the adaptors as soon as the new one appears. Pricing has so far been stated as $99.


Thanx to Bing n Others Interested..................
