VCV Rack is a fantastic virtual Modular Synthesizer, what’s a modular synthesizer you ask? Well, listen on and you’ll here me describe what it is. You can read more about VCV Rack at https://vcvrack.com/

Screenshot of VCV showing my attempt at creating a modular synthesizer setup to make some kind of sound. It didn't work very well, still have so much to learn.

VirtualBox allows you to run a virtual computer inside your computer, confused, well listen on as I try my best to explain what the heck it is. VirtualBox is available for Windows, Mac and Linux at https://www.virtualbox.org/

Screenshot of VirtualBox here it is seen running LibreOffice Writer Word processor and Audacity, an audio software utility.

VLC Player is a do-all, play all media player. I have yet to find a file that it won’t gobble up and play. You can get VLC Player at https://www.videolan.org/vlc/

Screenshot of VLC Player shown with a screenshot from a stop-motion movie I put together with my daughter when she was around five years old or so. In the image you see a little Playmobil character and behind him, is a large pair of child's feet (my daughter's)
