Hi OCremix, I've been a fan of this site for a while now and have decided that I want to try out remixing a track. Only problem is that I have no idea where to start. I had a look at the tutorials section and the thread about the best free music software was a good start for letting me know what's out there, but there's a lot of different programs in that list and I'm not sure what would be best for me.
I don't have a keyboard or anything that I can hook up to my laptop, so I was thinking maybe there's something that will let me write notated music kind of like the program sibelius. The problem with sibelius is the sounds are crappy midi sounds.
From the tracks I've heard here, I gather that there's a way of getting real instrument sounds on the computer without having to physically record them yourself? If I'm right in this assumption, what would be the program to use?
If anybody could help me in the right direction, that would be great. I'm sure many have asked the same questions before me so sorry for being a noob.
