I was curious about what's the best recording software for a classically trained musician, but one who writes indie rock/pop/folk/hip-hop/EDM? In fact, I'm not professionally trained, but I grew up around some top-notch classically trained musicians, and I know how to read music, and I enjoy scoring my own music in Finale-like applications like MuseScore or Notion. I'm still learning, but I can definitely sense myself steadily improving, and I am currently at a place in my life where I can pursue music as a profession, and I want to do some DIY projects to record my music (as well as work with experienced professional recording engineers). So if I want to continue to grow in terms of standard music notation composition/transcription, but also make "modern" sounding music with drums and synths (often not recorded, but just input directly from the [computer] keyboard), how can I "kill two birds with one stone"? I mean, I would be happy to focus on Garage Band, Fruity Loops, Audacity, Logic, etc. (though I prefer open-source/cheap software, and I prefer Linux, but not a deal-breaker if there's not Linux version), but I would like to choose a software package that is well-integrated with standard music notation. I don't know if any of these packages that the average "producer" uses would satisfy my standard music notation requirement, but if you know of any, I would greatly appreciate some advice. Thanks in advance!
