How to Use a Noise Gate to Get Rid of Unwanted Noise in Your Audio Recordings Unfortunately, for musical composition you are going to have to pay for things if you want real quality. I'm not exactly sure what you want though; For notation you really need Finale or Sibelius, other free or shareware programs might be workable, but for full control over anything you are going to have to pay for the program. For real sounding instrument samples, I suggest either Reason or Logic. Both are going to cost a pretty penny, but the sheer amount of samples that comes with something like logic is astounding (Over 50 Gb of real instrumental samples and things) I would also suggest looking into an M-Audio box, for microphone capture, and a Midi controller for direct inputs from an electric piano. You can find basically all of that at M-Audio's website: []

Mixing in Stereo: Adding Width and Depth to Your Recordings When it comes to discussing the fine art of mixing music, I tend to approach the subject with some trepidation. After all, compared to many of the topics I’ve written about, this one is rife with subjectivity — one person’s idea of a great sounding mix may be another’s sonic nightmare. And what works for one genre of music will be decidedly wrong for another. But all those variables aside, there are at least a few general theories, tips, and tricks that apply to most mix projects.
