MUSIC SOFTWARE THAT IS COOL AND FREE? RECOMEND
not free but, but if you have a mac and you get MainStage 2 for like £20 it gives you access to all the logic instruments and all of the garageband jampacks, total bargain.
So you can then import into another project on your workstation of choice and fiddle about with it as you want.
Am I right?
Yeah you can record in it, when I updated garageband it put all the mainstage/logic instruments in the legacy folder so I just use them directly in that.
in-browser synth set-up thing, sort of similar to older versions of reason, is surprisingly full featured for what it is.
This is THE answer. Also, even though it is free it is commercially viable. I use Logic in my studio these days but I used Reaper in a commercial studio for years and it is perfectly serviceable.
If you've a mobile device, check out the free Music Maker Jam app for creative tracks from loops etc. These can then be uploaded to the parent music software www.magix.com/gb/music-software/ (not free but cheap) to tweek on the computer.
Think about an dual boot?
That or you could look into BuzzMachines.com. It's an excellent tracker program.

I'm a music maker who wants to get some software to play with for (free) what do you think I should use?
You should use the trumpet
free for the PC and I think it's about 5.99 to use it on Android
Not free but cheap recommendations, I recently got a nanopad2 £20 on amazon, best value musical purchase ever, tapping out drums is so easy and fun, I lose sleep and my fingers ache from playing it so much. Led me to getting the nano keys and nanokontrol as well, was going to buy a korg volca to use with but then decided on the korg gadgets ipad app, it has 15 little synth and drum machine models, probably very entry level but that's what I wanted, an introduction to a variety of synths without overwhelming complexity, £27 pretty pricey for an app but I know if I had gone down the volca route I would have ended up spending £4-500 on all 4 of them. Become a bit of a korg fanboy. All the nano controllers come with bundled software, synths drums etc, I've not tried it but probably enough to get started with
