I have a Korg 01/Wfd and have been researching production software such as Sonar 8 Producer. I'm trying to figure out the least expensive (for now) way to compose and create professional recordings using my keyboard (if possible) and software (virtual instruments, etc).
My operating system is XP Media (I know I have to upgrade to XP Pro or Vista).
Would I be able to create and record professional tracks using the Korg, Sonar 8 and VSTs/Soft Synths?
I know my questions are pretty basic for some of you, but after doing some reading on my own I understand more than I did at first, but I know there are gaps in my understanding. Also I've never worked with MIDI files. Previously I've used USB to record audio from my keyboard sequencer to my computer.
Any clarifications would be greatly appreciated.
