    Just an aside. I have a full and paid for version of Cubase SX3. "Newer" (ie, soon before the release of Cubase 4) versions of it did not come with a full paper manual, despite the box still being the size of a house, for environmental reasons. They did, however, come with a quick start guide, the Cubase disk, some other trial software, and a dongle. The manual is on a pdf on the disk. I just printed it out and put it in a ring binder because Im a tree murdering bastard.

    There are people in the past who have said they did not have the Cubase manual and also claimed to have bought Cubase SX3. These people were often dismissed a pirates. I can say with absolute certainty that it did not come with a manual when I bought it.

    However, not checking the disk (a pretty obvious place if you ask me) for the manual, then asking dumb questions because you didn't read said manual, is stupid anyway. But that's a different issue.

    so my piratin' days be over...

    But I still haven't found anything I like for editing as much as me old Soundforge from just after the Sony switch.

    Since I went Mac+(legit) Logic, I've just not been doing some of the waveform editing I used to easily with my PC.

    Anybody recommend a OS X equivalent that hasn't been listed already, or at least tell me if the programs listed have changed enough in the past 3 years to offer much of the same ease and functionality I miss from me old pirated SF?

    I'm on a Mac also - tried the Mac "beta version" of Reaper out (even though I have Logic and Cubase 4) but it didn't impress me much... maybe the finshed product will.

    Thumbs up Software Piracy Policy - with alternatives!

    "But where can I find free VST Plug-ins!?"

    Well now that you have your DAW set up, you're fiendin' for effects and plug-ins to invigorate your recordings. You first look at your favorite online recording retailer and realize, "Wow, all of these plug-ins could to cost me more than my entire home recording setup combined!"

    Luckily for you, there are free VST's available on the internet, supplied by generous programmers and audio lovers alike. No, I'm not talking about the pirated software plug-ins that your friend gets from Limewire, I'm talking about free for download and use plug-ins.

    Here I have compiled a list of more notable free VST plug-in websites. You can install many of these by putting the .dll file in your software's VST folder. It deserves mentioning that many of these are only PC compatible but there are still Mac compatible versions on here.

    Variety of VST and AU plug-ins

    Well regarded bundle of VST's

    Database of Plug-Ins and Virtual Instruments. Some gems. Find out yourself.

    Bundle and assorted dynamic processing VST.

    Basic Amp Simulators

    Vinyl Emulation

    Another collection of assorted VST. Search for the goodies.

    Double Tracking Emulation

    Popular Guitar Amp Simulator free for a *year*

    Slew of different VST.

    Various effects and tools

    Another exhausting list of VST's

    There are plenty of plug-ins contained in this list that can sound great when used right. Hopefully this list can direct you to find something useful to improve your mixing and enjoyment. If nothing else, maybe you can now sort out which plug-in's you really need and which are unnecessary for your recording success.

    Good luck, Eric Gieg
