    15 Good DAWs

    I myself use Acid Music Studio 10.0. Now admittedly it's not exactly the most stable DAW out there (it crashes frequently), and it's U.I. looks like something straight outta Windows 98. But it's cheap ($60 USD or so), and easy to use.

    I didn't know there were so many factors that could effect the Audio interface. But let me ask this: would pretty much anything be better than my generic 1/4 to USB plugin? The thing tends to start crackling every so often, so I have to unplug it and plug it back in.   The info you have provided is help full, However, I feel as though my Shoddy equipment may only be part of the problem. Like I said in the first post: I've been successful in almost all other types of Classic RPG themes, but I find faster pace battle music to be a much bigger challenge. Is this normal for most/all budding composers? Is fast pace music just a harder thing to make over other types of video game music? I'm not sure why I'm struggling so much with this.   Also thank you so much for your help.

    Funny, I was actually considering buying that exact type of guitar; model and everything. XD So I'm assuming that "Eleven Rack" is a type of Audio interface, correct? I was considering getting an audio interface, but maybe a bit more on the lower end of the budget spectrum. Right now, like I said, I have a generic 1/4 to USB interface, which is far from great, but it beats the hell out of my PC's onboard Sound Card. I assume a proper Audio Interface would do far better, yes? I heard that it would help "color" the sound, but I'm not 100% sure what that means. Also do you use a real bass guitar for your songs, or do you go synth for that?

    You're song sounds pretty cool. Did you use you're Single Coil Fender or your Les Paul with the Humbucker pickups?   As for me: right now, I'm using a Squier Bullet Strat, a Dean 09 5 string bass guitar, a generic 1/4  to USB connection cord, and Some Virtual Freeware Amps and effects, which include Some things from Ignite Amps, and a generic Metal Distortion Effect. Out of all of those laughably subpar things I listed, which one would you suggest I improve upon the most? Keep in mind that I live in an apartment complex, so I'm mostly limited to virtual amps. Also I'm poor at the moment. :( I do have a Fender Frontman 15G amp, but I haven't really used it. I was thinking about a new guitar, one with Humbucker Pickups to help me get more refined Metal/hard rock sound since My Strat only has single coils.   The sort of sound I'm going for is a PS2 era JRPG sound. Also a friend of my keeps pushing me to use a "fake guitar" (IE a VST), but I'm a great guitarist, and I feel like the real deal is better than any synth.

    Hello. I'm new to this site. Nice to meet you all.   So I've been making been making RPG style music for little over a year now, and doing pretty well so far. However I've been trying to make Melodic Rock and Metal battle themes, and so far I haven't been doing too good. Although I'm somewhat getting into the swing of it, I could still use some insight from someone that knows more about this than I do.   If there are any other composers on this website that use electric guitar in their songs, I would like to know what your methods are, and what sort of equipment you use.   P.S. If you know any good Acoustic Drumkit VSTs or Panflute VSTs, preferably for free, please let me know.
