You have a folder just for groaning plug-ins? I thought you'd stopped over-dubbing porn?

My fave freebie plugins:

The Minimogue - http://www.home.no/gunnare/
First discovered this when I used to use the superb [url-http://www.acoustica.com/mixcraft/Mixcraft[/url] DAW software, which is probably the most cost-effective bit of kit if you're interested in trying your hand at recording audio and/or MIDI. It comes bundled with Minimogue and a few other cute bits of freeware.

Some Cakewalk freebies - http://www.cakewalk.com/products/Gifts-for-musicians/existing_customer.asp
The SFZ+ and Square instruments are fun, and the FX processors aren't bad either - look down towards the end of the page. These used to be 'pay for', but it's the usual thing, if you don't mind something that's a bit old and not quite cutting edge (and let's face it, we're all prog fans Smiley) these are just the ticket for no money...

Another glitch plug-in, dfx Buffer Override - http://destroyfx.smartelectronix.com/
Not as funky as the dBlue one, but again, at the price it's all worth playing with!

The TAL stuff is brilliant - http://kunz.corrupt.ch
The TAL-Elek7ro is probably the best, but they're all worth a play with. The Chorus-60 is one of the best chorus effects around, including the commercial ones.

Another great place to get stuff is Computer Music magazine. They have a cover DVD every month which often features an older version of a commercial plugin for free as well as a collection of VSTis and effects, some of which are genuinely useful - they call it the CM Collection. It's worth buying a single issue of the magazine just to get your hands on that, to be honest.

I believe the TAL plugins are available as AUs also, Rog.

Anyone here use Sibelius and if so, what, if any, DAW do you use as well ?

Also, any recommendation on good, but relatively inexpensive, audio interfaces that have MIDI I/O ?

well, I'm a Finale user, but I use Logic.  Tascam makes a good product, though I haven't used this particular unit: 144mkII

I have the Lexicon Omega which I like, and at school I have a Tascam Fireone which is no longer made, but you can still find them.  it's a neat unit.

I recommend the Novation NIO 2/4, Bert, which has MIDI I/O as well as two audio ins and four audio outs. USB2 connected, and dead easy to set up - powered from the USB bus (no PSU required) and has a phantom power supply for a condenser mic, should you need such a thing. The quality is good enough for 'proper' recording as well as podcasts...reviews have rated the DAC in it very highly.

I've used it for every TEP so far, and it's done me proud - about 130 if you shop around, maybe even less...
