I use sibelius and that's about it. I put the notes in, sib plays and records what I do. Samplers and daws and the rest I am not sure about.
My guess is that for example if I bought K3, It would play the sounds if I used a midi keyboard to input, but would not record. To record I need a sequencer?
All I am looking for is a simple explanation of what does what. If I bought k3 to go with sib, how do I get the sounds from libraries to be recorded?
What does what?
The reason I ask is that I am interested in buying K3, but I can't get a yes or no from sib that the instruments in K3 will record in SIB5. Actually, I get both yes and no from them. When I use sib4 w/Jabb, I record sib instruments in sib and jabb instruments in Garritan studio and then put the 2 together in audacity. The sounds are sometimes in synch and sometimes not. Needless to say it is frustrating to have everything going along fine and then all of a sudden for a few measures one lags behind the other and then get back in synch.
What is the solution?
