Can you recommend any freeware sequencers for OSX (or even Windows, I guess) that can send MIDI? Fucking Garageband can't. I know this is a long shot. Also hows your experience with the M-Audio controller, I've read some things indicating they are mostly crap - on the other hand they are affordable.

It doesn't ever really climax, but it is rather pleasant. I agree about the video game soundtrack.

But i have yet lots to learn :)
Does that mean you intend on doing something with this in the future? That'd be awesome.

Some sweet harmonies and stuff there Manny.... very nice. The strings sound real nice.
I assume you play this on a midi keyboard first... yes??

mattymoose: Try this one:http://www.reaper.fm
I haven't tried it myself but a coworker did and he seems to enjoy it. Apparently the trial version is pretty much like the trial version of winRAR. It expires, but you can still use it and its full functionality. You just get the little "please register"-message. So i guess its worth trying.

hanksr00tbeer: Yes, climax. We'll see what the future holds. :O

soontekk: Thanks. A lot of people are saying it sounds a bit xmassy. Kinda wasn't my intention, but perhaps thats what happen when you add a lot of "happy" sounds in a tune :D

markoid: Somtimes, yes. But most of it comes from endless tweaking in the sequencer.

horizon: Oh hush up! :P

Update!
The links above has been updated with the latest version! Have a listen :D

Fred - I've just got talking to a guy who wants to write some audio software to provide real time augmentation to digital music. He seems pretty clued up, but I was wondering if you knew of anything along these lines that already exists. E.g. If I play a chord sequence (say piano), it analyses the progression & comes up with a string section, etc. to fill out the sound. Crazy stuff !

I'm in agreement with Mattymoose, this would fit in to your stereotypical final fantasy-esque game quite well, change your career!... are game musicians paid more than game artists?

Thanks Manfred, Reaper looks so fucking key... I'm not even pissed that their epic 400-page pdf documentation ("This doc is not freeware") crashed my browser when I tried to open it...

I doubt game musicians are paid more than artists, but I do know it's very common for studios to contract out their music production to freelancers.

Im pretty sure Reaper used to be free. It`s fully functional though, supports VST etc.. Ableton Live is my favourite atm though a different approach.

If it does what I want, I'll gladly pay $50 for a noncommercial Reaper license. Peanuts, especially compared to Ableton! The other soft I was looking at is Minihost, but its PC-only. edit: not only does it do exactly what I need it to, there's even threads on their forum explaining precisely how to set it up....words can't describe how awesome this is....
