"Hi

"I'd just like to add that Bob happens to be one of the real experts on the Sibelius forum, and likely knows more about the advanced usage of Sibelius than others around here.   Many have benefited from his expert advice and kindness on that forum. …"

"After listening to the notation vs daw mp3's, the difference between them isn't so much about daw being better than notation software.  You can use high quality samples with notation software as well as sound sets to achieve much better results than…"

"One thing I find annoying with DAW's is working with that piano roll/midi representation of music.  Most musicians/composers learn music notation when learning an instrument, not piano rolls.  I want to view my music as notation, not Midi dots or…"

"Hi Mike, any chance you could post your DAW project file or exported Midi file for this?  Would be interesting to see what the Midi looks like as far as how you used CC's to make for a more realistic mock.  I use Cubase Pro myself, and certainly…"

"Nice mockup!  As I'm trying to work on creating better mockups, I'm wondering if you could share your process a bit for how you created it?   Certainly you've got great samples, but am wondering how much of the realism comes from the samples vs. …"

Lasse Karhu replied to eboats's discussion Notation workflow?
"Currently with MuseScore it's mostly by mouse input and a ton of keyboard shortcuts. I do have my trusty old Yamaha DGX-200 which offers a shortcut (via MIDI IN) for certain big chords for example. But usually the MIDI link is not connected. I play…"

"In both cases no Dave. One of my best romantic composers is Hector Berlioz who could only play (very badly) guitar.
On the other hand, some of the composers I really admire and consider my mentors were just folk musicians without any "technical"…"
