    Nice! Thanks.

    Why are we buying libraries when we can get these for free?


    I'm not now 🙂   Got more than I need now with IK Total Max 2, Garritan PO and all my freebies / cheapies! I'm still tempted by Desert Winds for the excellent duduk though but waiting to see if it ever goes below £50!

  2. As well as John's videos linked to in his post I can highly recommend Mike at Creative Sauce who has done a whole series on starting out with Cakewalk as well as many other tutorials using the DAW. His approach is clear and friendly and I still refer back to his videos to remind myself how to do stuff. This series is three years old now and there are some new features that aren't covered but it should still be a good starting point to give you a basic idea.

    As others have said it would probably take a lifetime to learn and use everything but you can get good results quite quickly

    Good luck!

    Although you can only use machine activation on the freebies; paid products require either iLok dongle or cloud (which is fine for me, just wasn't sure if you knew and thought you might be irked if you only found out after buying something).

    Thanks Craig - I doubt if I'd ever be able to justify buying any of their libraries but forewarned is forearmed! 

  4. They're certainly on a roll and I like the fact that you can now authorise to a PC iLok rather than a dongle as that had put me off until now. Only free one I haven't downloaded yet is the piano as I don't know if it will be worth taking up disc space when I have several pianos in IK Total Max 2 and also the Freddy Mercury piano

  5. I've just installed the NI Ethereal Earth offered free as part of this package but it says on the website and in Native Access that it is a demo version. Also a weird way to download via a ISO disc image!

  6. Is Big Bang Orchestra available now with onboard iLok rather than USB key? - I didn't get it previously as I would have needed a dongle. This flute looks interesting!
