Hello everyone, I am pretty new to recording in general, and was wondering what kind of a Mac (laptop) I should get.(I have no Idea about Macs) I would be using it for such programs as Sibelius, Q…Continue

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I was born 1988 in England, moved to Germany at age 4 and ever since live in Frankfurt Germany, I finished studying Music in 2011
at the Frankfurter-Musik- Werkstatt (Pop & Jazz school) in Frankfurt my main instruments are Drums and I Keyboard (Piano). I love Video Game music espacially the older stuff like "Secret of Evermore" by Jeremy Soule, or "Beneath a steel sky" by David Lowe.
I earn my money through teaching Drums & Piano, but am looking for a career in composing for Video Games or animation in general and working together with fellow musicians or animation students. If anyone is also fairly new when it comes to composing or animation, feel free to write to me.
I pretty much nearly only do music related things all day.
Well, it's all programmed sounds. I used Acoustica MixCraft 5.0 for it (basically a real simple recording program, where you also can make music - it's like Cubase, just alot simpler). I do want to upgrade to a more sofisticated composition program soon, but such things often costs alot of money...
But for starters I'd recomend MixCraft or Cubase for recording (off course you can use free software such as Audacity aswell, but really, Audacity sucks) and Sibelius - or free alternatives such as MusScore - for notation. Good luck! :)
