Technology is helpful in so many ways. We would be foolish to be Luddites about it. Ignore it at your peril, yes. But also, embrace it at your peril. Many of us who have discovered the expediency of working with sequencers and DAWS for immediate feedback (even pianos) have suffered losing notation skills along the way.

When I do a project that requires a good sounding demo, computer-based, I am in a DAW paradigm. But if the end result is for human musicians, this must be translated…

Hello Ken

I use Notion 5 composition software which allows me to import and sync video, it has great samples and work flow. I then import each instrument wave file separately into Pro Tools to master it. At that time I can also add any live instruments I need. I have a few compositions published in Nashville and am currently writing for a company in California that has clients such as Sketchers and Chevrolet and some film opportunities. There are a lot of composers writing for them and the clients pick what they like. How about you?
