Midi Recording Studio with LMMS/VST

I have been a MIDI fan and synthesizers since I was a little child. I used the Amiga 500 Steinberg Pro 24 software and Bars’n Pipes amazing software.

Now, I run on PCs and Windows. I use LMMS as the record studio sequencer application. It’s free and has the VST plug-ins features. SO I can run all the electronic instrument made by third-party vendors.

I have tried the following virtual instruments:
