I'm a software developer and a graphics artist, but I've been taking an interest in creating music simply for the leisurely pleasure of bringing to life the orchestral scores I find banging around in my head trying to get out =)
As the heading states, I am a COMPLETE noob to music creation.
I bought something called the Garret Personal Orchestra 4 (This is all I have related to music creation). It uses something called the Aria Player. However, I can't seem to make anything with it. The reason I bought it was because of the demos pasted on their site of what one could ultimately do with GPO4.
I guess this is more of me not understanding anything about music composing software to begin with (if the aria player is a music composer to begin with).
I just really need someone to point me to the best direction to composing orchestral scores.
I know how to play the piano in real life and that's about it for my music abilities.
