Question to all: who uses just notation software, who uses just a sequencer, and who uses both and in what way?
I have only completed 1 MIDI song so far, and I got so frustrated getting Overture SE to sound the way I wanted it to sound, that I just said "screw it" and did everything straight in Cubase. Thing is, I don't really have a score for what I did, and I don't feel like spending the time to create a score after the fact-- I'd rather work on another song!
Now, I'm working on something else, and my process so far is to use Overture SE to compose the notes and general dynamic markings, with a rough score being the end result, and then go back into Cubase and 'record' it.
Does anyone get notation programs to sound really good without using a sequencer?
