    Hi, forgive my terminology, just starting my dive into music/composition.

    I am not particularly interested in recording capabilities of software,
    but rather the possibility of using midi samples to make music from scratch completely on the computer. I am wonder what software is available for such purposes, and what would be good to start with (past the crap quality of guitarpro).
    I saw that cubase sx 3.0 has such capability, but the 800 dollar pricetag scared me. If it is what it takes I will go there, but if there are cheaper still effective options availabe, it would be great to know.
    Quality of samples does matter :).

    Thanks for your time folks.

    If you don't intend to incorporate recorded tracks at all, maybe Propellerhead Reason is the way you should go. It comes chock full of numerous soft synths, a sampler, drum modules, processing effects -- and the ability to mix all of this stuff and output digital audio files. It's a good app for pop, dance or electronic genres.

    Myself, I use MOTU Digital Performer to create MIDI-driven compositions for tv. It's a great app for MIDI stuff, but you need to purchase all virtual instruments and samplers a la carte.

    i am looking into more of guitar/piano centered music with use of effects.
    also i would like the possibility of adding guitar tracks in, since i do play.
