"Hi Liz,
I am chiming in because I use Apple's Logic Pro X on a an iMac running Mac OS 10.13.6 High Sierra with 32 GB of RAM, which (I believe) is even more ancient than what you are running. I have only a few libraries--mostly Spitfire products and…"

"Dear Jon et al.
I'd agree with you if I could afford to pay a bunch of real people to play the stuff I write - can only talk for myself here!  Then you'd get all the random elements - though why us humans practice and practice to play as perfectly…"

"In many ways I agree -- although I know people who say the score is actually the composition. For me, it's actually only the starting point for making music.

"thanks for the kind compliment, Ingo -- I am still in intermediate stages of trying to improve my mock-ups from the state they were in say a couple of years back and have some way to go. As you say, both DAW's and notation programmes tend to have…"

"Though most postings on this topic have been about specific DAWs, I believe that because the topic title is phrased more generally as “Let’s talk about DAWS,” it may not be inappropriate for me to follow up on my general comment about computer…"

"Just a thought - not certain what version of Windows you're on - why don't you Rewire - or similar - Finale and Cubase together?  Then instead of having to do all the importing/exporting stuff, you could use them both together to create a finished…"

Ingo Lee replied to Liz Atems's discussion Let's talk about DAWs
"Let me say that both David Carovillano and David Owen are producing beautiful work that is neither dry nor mechanical.
DAWS for years have had 'humanize' algorithms to introduce subtle varitations to the rhythm and velocity settings of midi files.…"

"I think one important point about modern sample libraries is that they are virtually all designed to be played live in real time and recorded in this way, one part at a time. This way the transition programming, which is becoming increasingly…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Liz Atems's discussion Let's talk about DAWs
"I've never used a serious DAW before, so take this with a grain of salt: composing with a DAW is a completely different process from composing on a score the traditional way. You can import notation into a DAW if you're really inclined to, but the…"

"Hi Chris,
My answer was to Liz, the OP, not to you regarding Quick Score Elite which I didn't realise was still around -- it's a very old package dating back to the 1990's which has retained an interface from that era although it may well work OK…"

"Dear David.
Nope, I'm using the wonderful Quick Score Elite Level 2 by Cris Sion, accept no imitation.  Yup, Dorico works EXACTLY  the same way as Quick Score Elite - but it's £500!!!  There's a student version for £50, I know, but I'll never…"

"this is an old thread and I get the impression that you're still using Sibelius and NotePerformer which means no DAW as NP is only designed to work with notation software. Although there are certain things that are only possible with a DAW or others…"

"Dear Liz.
F'starters - nice to meet someone that can actually read music - it's becoming much more of a rarity these days!
Secondly - I use Quick Score Elite Level 2, which is a notation DAW, and love it! Its only real drawbacks are firstly it's…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Liz Atems's discussion Symphony No. 1 in C Minor - continuing (mis)fortunes
"So the idea of working this piece into a specific programme just isn't really very appealing... but something musically contrasting yet unifying, perhaps a more extended music of which the steely, muscular writing of the two big climaxes of the work…"
