Hello, 

I'm new to the forum.

I purchased the cdp 130 CASIO keyboard

I need guidance with understanding which window 10 software synthesizer, MIDI software to download. I would like to jump in somewhere and perhaps there is a suggestion/jump in point for me to experiment with.

Thank you,

Steve  

 

BTW the "dzSwell - Rhodes blended with a saw/synth swell element. Inspired by Chick Corea Electrik Band tune “All Love”" is pretty cool... was this made by softare?

You're in the wrong place. If you have a CDP 130 there are other places on the forum to discuss it, and if you're generally looking for MIDI software, you need to ask in a topic area here that's more general.
