i've been really motivated to compose this few weeks. i think i wrote more tunes this month than the first 32 years of my life combined.

i've always been hearing melodies in my head, but this is the first time i've gotten down to understand how sequencing software works and be able to use them to add strings, keys, horns.

the best melodies often make me feel like i'm an astronaut waiting to go into space. its the imagination of propelling oneself into the blackness, seeing stars, gazing into the earth from above that makes me feel life is full of wonderment!

since i can never be a space traveller in this lifetime, i'm going to have to make music that makes me feel like one.

i wished i had someone to push and discipline me into doing all this earlier. everything would have been so much faster.

guess its the music thats going to come in a tidal wave then.

Hey Hey, what sequencing software are you currently using?
I tried Pro Tools when I had a Mac. Then I use Cakewalk when I switched to Windows. However, Cakewalk is only good if you are making the music into Midi format (that's what I realised... or maybe I didn't go deep enough into the program). Now, I'm using Magix.

i use quite a few:

FL Studio (used to be fruity loops - its really good and professional-level now)

Finale (you do music score and generate the music from there)

Ableton Live 7 (very good for combining clips)

Adobe Audition 3 (good for tracking and mixing more than midi-piano roll style composing)
