Need scoring advice!
Hi everyone, I\'m new to this board. I\'m a musician and I just got my first scoring job for a very short subject film, however I have no experience using a computer to compose. I\'ve tried researching on the internet but am still totally confused by sequencers, samplers, etc. Can someone just tell me plainly and simply what I need in terms of software and hardware?
What I need to do is write to picture from my synth, and through whatever process, the end result should be a professional sounding orchestral mock-up, completely notated. I know it can be done and I\'ve heard the awesome samples on the Vienna Strings and Advanced Orchestra websites, it\'s just that no one ever tells what the process is to get there.
I\'m not interested in being a MIDI tech guru, I just want to concentrate on writing the music. Any info would be really helpful. Thanks.
