I am trying to figure out the best workflow for composing orchestral music.
I have tried using Finale but find some aspects of it frustrating.
Most composers I see in Youtube are working in DAWs working with midi data.
I don't like getting bogged down in technical issues when I want inspiration to flow, so I'm looking for user-friendly software.
What methods have you guys found best?
What software do you use?
Or do you just write notes by hand and then scan it?
If you can describe the advantages of your method, that would be excellent!
