I create Jazz and Big Band scores and MIDI files. I use:- Overture/Scorewriter for scoring. Cakewalk 3 !!! for sequencing. For sound:- Creative X-Fi Extreme Gamer soundcard. Garritan Jazz and Bigband samples. Chaos 8Mb soundfont. Synthfont, VSTSynthfont, SyfonOne MidiOx, LoopBe Classic Reverb For transcription:- Amazing Slowdowner
And welcome to the forum. Many thanks for introduction, you'll notice many people don't bother, so yours is much appreciated.
Cakewalk 3, eh? Well, that takes me back more years than I care to remember. Mark you I do most of my sequencing in XGworks. It seems otherwise that we share many bits of software in common. Although I moved from LoopBe to Maple virtual MIDI cable a year or two back.
Hope you find something of use here. Kind regards, JohnG
