ISTR it was either Linplug Alpha or Synth1; I forget, because 2002 was a long time ago. Great beginner synths!
Wait... loot _then_ burn? D'oh!

Granted, Midi was and still is important. But instrument plugins did not appear before the sequencers were able to record audio!gearwatcher wrote: ↑Wed Sep 28, 2022 3:28 am A lot of people still use their DAWs not for audio recording but to MIDI sequence virtual plugins.
I disagree that the line is drawn with ability to record audio. Software sequencers were very much the center of most work in studios that used them, and it's no wonder that the other central bit, the mixing desk, got MIDI automation fairly soon after automated faders became affordable enough for small studios.
The first affordable mixer with automated faders I recall was a Yamaha, even digital, Mixer which was terribly noisy…
But what I wanted to point at, is that all this did not start on C64s or Ataris in the home studio…

Fairly new to the scene so my first plugin was the Arturia Mini V3 that came with the minilab. Enjoying learning about how everything works!
