Hi folks. I'm relatively new to computer recording but have been a piano player all my life. I have read tons of stuff on all the neato gear that's out there but my needs are simple. Most of the recording I will do will be with piano and strings... and an occasional synth pad.... no mics or guitars(not anytime soon anyway). Not a lot of bells and whistles needed here but I do want to make top notch piano and string recordings. What kind of midi/audio sequencing software do y'all recommend? Should I invest in a softsynth such as gigasampler? or would that cost too much to justify what I want to do with it?
