I am wondering how I would add different sounds that I want to use in mixcraft? I want to find other virtual instrument sounds on the internet and then add then into mixcraft so I can use them in my songs. How would I go about doing that? I know at the top of the list of virtual instrument sounds that there is a list with four options that I think might have something to do with it. They are Custom, VSTi Instruments, ReWire Devices, and External MIDI Devices.

We need to know what instruments you want to add (synths, strings, etc) as there is a virtual universe of possibilities to choose from.

Agreed.
Marc, your recent questions are far to vague and general, you might get much more help if you were more specific and clear.
I'd be glad to offer some suggestions, but honestly, I am not sure what you are asking!

My bad, I was pretty vague. What I want to know is how to add sounds I find on the internet into Mixcraft to be used with my keyboard and used in my songs. Also, what exactly do I search for in google when I go searching for the sounds. Let's say I wanted to find some more string sounds, what exactly would I want to search for in google to find some that are compatible with Mixcraft? And what is it that makes them compatible or not compatible anyways?

OK for string sounds you can google "string VST" and you will get results ranging from freebies to libraries costing $1000s. Try some of the freebies (avoid torrents pls as very often their pirated stuff is corrupted) and see if they do it for you. Try the KVR audio forums for safe downloads. If Free doesn't do it for you post another thread asking for recommendations on string libraries and you will be inundated with possibilities from me and the boyz ;)

Good advise. In addition, it might help to know what you are using now.

Unfortunately, most good options require a virtual instrument or sampler, and another learning curve to install and operate.
