Hello again, Ron - Thanks for answering some questions I had in my last reply. And, cool beans about trying out a bit less reverb.
OK, so it's as I thought, that actually you're more interested in playing, composing and recording music rather than in making nice looking print outs.
"...Unless there is a decent sequencer out there for under 100$, It has to wait a while. But my goal is not so much to have pretty scores as to have good music..."
OK, and so I also understand you're on a tight budget. Well, I know there are several versions of Cakewalk under $100. Poke around at their site - easy to find, http://www.cakewalk.com and read up on the various versions.
AND, here's a hand link to REAPER - a shareware program that a lot of people think is just as good as the big companies' sequencer programs, and more hip because it's a grass-roots kind of thing, radical, anti-big-business and all that good stuff. I'm not sure what they're asking in the way of donation - less than $50 I think--!
CHECK IT OUT --
Here's a great endorsement - I do believe Forum member HANNES is a Reaper user. Use the Search engine here at the Garritan Forums, you might find some posts with him talking about the program.
And when you go to the above link, be sure to click "more info" towards the right. It'll take you to a Forum for Reaper users with a great screen shot of the latest greatest version which was just released this month!
GO forth and get what you Really want to work with!
