"I'll enter and try my hand at writing something for air. While I agree that 3 months is more than enough time for a two-minute piece, I'm in the middle of something right now and could probably use the time. But either way I'll give it a shot."

"UPDATE:
     I've been messing around with my new freebie software. I've been able to get sounds into (from my Carbon 61 keyboard) and out of (to my speakers) Kontact 5 and Reaktor 5. Reaktor 5 is amazing--such great sounds! And Kontact 5 comes with…"

"Possibly not, but I like Reaper because it gives me a little more control. Usually I set everything in the Sibelius mixer to center at 0 dB and then export it to a .wav file. I use Reaper to set my pans and fine-tune my EQ and reverb. Plus, Reaper…"

"Kontakt 5 is a sample player, a very powerful tool and an industry standard in many different genres. A sample player loads a library of already recorded sounds, and gives you some (limited) amount of tweaking over the sound. While you can make your…"

"Thanks for writing, Bob. I appreciate your advice, and I'll try to answer your questions as best I can.
I could easily export my compositions from Sibelius as MIDI files and then assign voices in Reaper, but the only sound library I had before…"

Mita Lupa replied to Glenn Simonelli's discussion Sibelius 7
"I cannot compare, as I'm new to Sibelius and have been working with 7, but it's great. A bit clunky, and difficult to navigate at first, as it's a 'new' set up (as far as I know) with the "ribbon" technology, but now that I've worked with it quite a…"

"Do you use a sequencer, or to you have Sibelius set up to use the EWQL voices during payback?"

"I've gone ahead and gotten Sibelius 7, and I agree with your assessment. I was hoping I could avoid having to buy a sequencer and sound libraries to get professional sounding demos, but Sibelius 7 isn't quite there yet. The sound quality is an…"

Boneman replied to Glenn Simonelli's discussion Sibelius 7
"Well it certainly is different and offers a lot more sounds but as for equalling EWQL etc, there is still a way to go."

Glenn Simonelli replied to Glenn Simonelli's discussion Sibelius 7
"Well, I guess I should have worded the question better. According to the Sibelius web site, Version 7 includes a new sound library. I was wondering if anyone has compared the new sound library with the Garritan library included with Version 6."
