New to Sampling
I\'m about to graduate from high school, and I\'ve recently been looking into purchasing a \"sound library,\" such as either Garritan\'s Personal Orchestra or the Silver Edition of EastWest\'s Symphonic Orchestra (both are only about $300, which is all I\'ve got to spend). However, I am unsure how all this sampling works. Right now, I only compose midi\'s, and I am hoping for more professional quality sounding music from one of these packages.
Can someone tell me about what exactly is included one of these packages, and how exactly I can use them to compose a piece and turn it into an MP3? Are there any other tools I\'ll need besides what\'s included in one of these packages? Will I be able to compose music entirely on the computer?
Thank you! I hope to make a purchase this summer!
