DarkWave Studio
Create polished and professional music tracks with this powerful digital audio workstation

DarkWave Studio is a free and open source digital audio workstation.

The program is a highly professional music creator that includes a virtual studio, pattern editor, sequence editor and multitrack hard disk recorder.

You get a stack of plug-ins, too. There's MIDI input and output, an 8-track stereo mixer, a couple of drum synths, an oversampling filter, echo and reverb effects, and more. And support for VST/VSTi instrument and effect plugins means you can expand DarkWave Studio to do just about anything you might want.

Some elements of the program are quite easy to use. The virtual studio allows you to connect machines as you'd like, for example, and working in the pattern editor is just a matter of clicking to add or delete notes, or dragging to resize them.

Elsewhere, though, there's very little documentation and the developer assumes that users know exactly what they're doing. If you're a music-making novice then DarkWave Studio probably isn't for you.

Version 5.6.2 brings (full changelog):

  • Added a new machine called 'ES DownStepper' which is a sample rate reduction filter.

Verdict:

While complex and short on documentation, DarkWave Studio is a very capable music creator, recorder and production tool, well worth a look if you've the time to invest in learning how it works

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
