How's it going? In recent months (by recent, I mean the last year) I have been slowly discovering that when I use a sequencer, I tend to write the same thing. Not the same tune, per se, but same motives, rhythms, textures, instrument combinations, everything.
However, when I use Sibelius 3, my mind seems to open back up and I stop using my personal cliches. Has anyone else experinced something like this? I like my sequencer because I can use vst's and effects that are integrated but I don't like the "limitiations" that my mind give me. I've been making a concious effort to get out of my rut.
The main reason I like the sequencer is because I can sync to Video, however, with Sibelius 4, which I haven't got yet, I can do the same thing. So, in the end, I may be abandoning my sequencer if it improves my work flow. Does that make sense?
Oh well, just thought I'd share and see if anyone else has come across this.
