If you've come to this site, you are certainly one of those who make music on the computer or are trying to do it. This site is designed for you, you can find lots of interesting links, you can download and try out various plug-ins or check out the developer site that offers many of its plugins for free.
The best option to process, create, mix, or edit and arrange music on a computer is DAW - Digital Audio Workstations, a music software, and you can connect any other hardware or software you need to create from your computer in a small home recording studio.
Among the best-known virtual music studios are FL Studio from Image-Line or from the Steinberg developer, the virtual Cubase music studio. VST plugins also support Ableton from the company of the same name. Sonar from Cakewalk is more focused on supporting midi sounds but supporting DirectX plugins instead of plug-ins and the ability to write tones directly to the scoreboard, just like in another Reason virtual audiostudio with similar features, suited to creating sound loops, sampling as well as by supporting midi banks, you can record tones in the piano roll.
If you want to add your music to the sounds of realistic instruments, you can choose from basically midi sound banks, virtual instruments or samples. Each of these options has its pros and cons. Some virtual instruments based on midi databases and in their credibility overcome plug-ins, which are more practical and accessible. Sampling instruments consist of real sound samples, sound may be more plausible, but such a VST instrument is bulky. All DAW devices support the midi interface, including the connection of an actual device, such as a midikeyboard.
VST (Virtual Studio Technology) technology allows the software (Vst plugin) that produces sound or effect to communicate seamlessly with the music device (DAW). It further processes the audio according to the user's requirements and sends it through the audio device of the computer to the speakers. Individual sounds (unless they are pre-created sound loops) can be handled in a piano or a notation depending on what DAW supports. Vst have different settings and presets, everything depends on the type, originality of the manufacturer and prices.
The VST plug-in size of the plugin is usually around a few megabytes, making it easy to install, often a dll library that is stored in a pre-selected folder, selected and tagged in the virtual audio studio user interface. All VST plugins should then be stored in this folder for easier work in DAW devices.
We can divide the tools into two categories. The first are sound generators - instruments - simulating the sounds of real tools, or synthesizer with a choice of various possible (but literally impossible) sounds, such as different noise, sounds known from nature, machine sounds, or classic sounds of analog synthesizers. Other inputs create effects that mimic and simulate the environment in which the tones lie, shape their depth, width, softness or reflection. These are effects like reverb, delay, chorus, enhancer, and more. There are also effects designed to create guitar sounds, preamplifiers, amplifiers or foot pedals. The selection is genre big (crunch, rock, metal, punk, jazz, etc.), as well as the equipment of the virtual apparatus (combo, loudspeakers, etc.) or the producer (Marshall, Peavey, Yamaha etc.).
It should be added that some of the plug-ins are universal, they contain both the instrument and the effect.
But what you will need is patience, ideas, effort and time, but believe that if you lack enough creative imagination and musical hearing, it is quite hard, if not impossible, because even in the most exhilarating musical styles you need to be able to penetrate into what you actually created and to judge if it's good enough to make it even better.
