Cheap DAW for Worship

Great podcast guys. Thanks for sharing. Ryan, you mentioned there was no cost effective PC DAW that could host Omnisphere. I've actually been using Reaper. It's an amazing program and it's free!

I use it to layer sounds and assign fader knobs for reverb, filters, etc... I unfortunately don't own Omnisphere because of the price tag, but I host Addictive Keys, and some other plug-ins. I'm still building and adding to my liking.

The downside is that almost ALL patches available for worship are for Mainstage, Omnisphere, Ableton, or Reason. But if you own a PC Reaper is a great program to create your own layers.

Awesome input.

Even more awesome screen name :)

Great podcast, one suggestion/request?

Thanks for sharing your podcast. I've had a chance to watch some of your tutorial videos, and the sounds are really good.

I had a request that I think may really help myself as well as other churches as we try to create a better worship environment for our congregations: wondering if it's possible to post tutorials that use more stock/factory Omnisphere sounds, or demonstrate how you've tweaked the factory patches to get the sound that you want?

It's not that I don't want to pay the 7 bucks to simply buy the patch; I would gladly pay that to watch a video in which you demonstrate how you tweak the factory presets or created your sounds (if applicable of course) to get your final product, for each song. It's just that I don't think I'm learning anything or becoming a better musician by using patches that you've put together, without knowing what your thought process was or how you go about actually approaching the songs. I think that would really help a lot of people improve (for example, even if their church decides to sing songs that aren't really mainstream but you don't want to skimp on the musical quality).

Thanks again!
