What is the consensus on notation versus sequencing programs. I have never found an adequate way to manipulate midi data in finale but I may be missing something.
For example, how would I change mod wheel data in a simple way to add vibrato. Could I get all the alternative attacks, breath noise, key noise for example, to happen as a result of an expression mark?
The reason this is such a pain to me is that I just bought a laptop with vista so I got the new version of Finale. Now my sequencer needs to be updated, I have 3 keyboards, none of which have the correct combination of after touch, working mod wheel and working sus pedal.
It would be nice to have this all work in finale but I suspect I should be working with a sequencer.
btw, The other reason for these questions is that I just finished 3 big band charts and would LOVE to just record them with the Garritan library.
