I'd like to ask for some advice regarding a new sequencer.
You see, I recently aquired a new computer with Windows Vista. I'm looking for a new sequencer to purchase to run on it. Cubase doesn't seem to like Vista, and nothing else I find really works. Here's why:
I already have a program that I like to create, record, and edit MIDI data in. But it doesn't support VSTi. All I want is something that can load VST instruments and play the MIDI data I create with them. I don't want many bells and whistles. And, as a cash-strapped high schooler, I'd like it to be less than $150.
("Sonar 6 Home Studio" looks nice, but the demo has been causing problems for me with my sound card. I don't know why. "Cubase SE3" looks nice, but it's not supported by Vista.)
The reason I ask is because I'm not familiar with the sequencer world out there. Is there some bare-bones budget item out there that furfills these requirements? (As an example, I'd be perfectly happy with Overture that comes with GPO if it ran other VSTs). Any advice would be fantastic!
