Arrow, that's no excuse. Get yourself a keyboard, USB guitar, and digital drum pad and you're set.

...USB Guitar? I had completely forgotten about digi drum pads though, that is going on my purchase list now. ;D

Well, just something to plug your guitar input to USB, so that you can just play through computer speakers and not have to lug an amp around.

Ah, I see. Does it improve the sound quality? I have been running my guitar into my amp, then an audio dubbing cable (which for me is a swiss army knife, basically) out of the headphone jack and into the mic input. Will a USB input make the sound better or worse?

You run it into the amp, and THEN into your computer? Definitely go USB then. The whole point is to NOT have to lug an amp around. Plus there's software that can do anything an amp will (read thread title for clues on where to find said software).

Why USB ?_? I just use a standard guitar lead and a cheapo 25p converter to convert it to a standard mini plug on the other end. Then you can just put that in your mic / line-in and use software to add effects or distortion.

[edit] picture because I can

Double posted because I have no idea of what else to do...Where can I get stuff like Tab-it and Finale, REGISTERED, (as in, do you have one I could steal from you?) and quickly? I'll wait on it to download for a pretty long time if I HAVE to, but I would rather not...

Finale can easily be found if you look for a torrent. Although I got mine from Silverline. If you don't know how to read music, I'd stick with Tabit or something else though (Although you can just write everything in tabs on Finale if you wanted to.). Finale's pretty complicated for the casual user unfortunately. Or you might want to look into Sibelius, it's more user-friendly.

EDIT: What happened to the poll? *Adding poll.* Add any more you can think of if I've forgotten Silverline.

I got this thing called Synthfont. My hatred for MIDI has officially melted...

Heh, I use synthfont.

You might want to find freeverb, a ree reverb VST effect and use that with synthfont.

Also, 2 awesome soundfonts I've uploaded HERE ~

Sometimes I use the Fluid soundfont in that link. I remember you gave it to me a while back. It's pretty good. I use that or the SoftSynth that comes with Finale, which is pretty good as well. That is, when I'm writing music for games. Otherwise I use Garritan Personal Orchestra, Garritan Jazz & Big Band, and Virtual Drumline: 2.

Thank you so much guys...are there any realistic...ish sounding guitar fonts out there? I figured I could use tabit, export to a midi, then use a font on it. In addition to THAT, I'm gonna try and use midis for my games now, so would anyone know where to get a good SNES font? I got this one by a guy called Setzer, but it's mostly for stuff like FF and Chrono Trigger...

Check www.hammersound.net

Most of the stuff there is individual instrument fonts though, so unless you can load multiple soundfonts, it may not help out. There was one guitar there that sounded great, but I don't remember which it was.

Other than that, almost all of them suck. I have Garritan Jazz & Big Band, and it comes with an electric guitar, but it's jazz, so it's not very well suited for rock. But I'm going to try and find something to add distortion to it to see how it turns out.

You can make synthfont use samples from as many different soundfonts you like :3 sometimes when I record stuff I use different instruments from both SGM and Fluid.

Well, I can't figure that out...how does one go about using multiple ofnts at once? I could only select one in the settings...does it involve that Vienna thing? And even if it doesn't, where would I find the Vienna Sound Font Editor?

Thanks Silverline, I was wondering what that was for...

BTW, you may or may not care, but I think that that fluid soundfont was used for the Music in Mega Man X8...
