What computer programs are you using to compose music? or are you just using pencil and paper? thanks! your music is awesome!
First off, thank you so much for the nice comment. We're two weeks away from the Journey release, so please email / facebook / twitter and let me know what you think after you've had a chance to explore!
Re: your question, I am most definitely a pencil and paper guy, at the onset. I like the feeling of paper when coming up with the initial ideas. On my facebook page I posted my original sketchbook that had the Journey theme in it (link below). However, once the original ideas are worked out, I quickly shift into working 100% in my software.
For sequencing, I use Digital Performer and all the various ancillary sample libraries, etc. For notation I use Finale. Pretty simple!
