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 5.8.0 brings (full changelog):

  • Updated installer with new code signing certificate.

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

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
