Yeah, stop crying you big girl's blouse.

Although I've never tried to do midi with a guitar as imput. Strange idea. Oh, and I don't own any guitars and never learned how to play the blasted things. That could be a potential problem.

I still say wav-to-midi conversion is the answer.

I play guitars, but I've never tried it. I'm proud to be a Luddite.

and works.
The whole PC stuff costs a lot of money and time and doesn't work. It's just frustrating. I just use it for mastering and wav editing. No MIDI!!!!

The good thing about PCs are that you dont have to pay for anything. I have got thousands of pounds worth of software and didn't pay for any of it.
If I am using my pc to record, I do either audio or midi. combining both is a nightmare unless you have a good sound card and fast processor.
At the moment if I want to combine midi tracks with audio, I record the midi tracks and treat them as ordinary audio tracks. Then I can add any post production to those tracks that I want.

Of course, if I had the money I would have a computer running Nuendo, stand alone racks of keys, effects and things with flashing lights on, a decent sized mixing desk , shit loads of really good mics and a sound booth.
But as I can get decent demos out of my cheap computer, I do proper recordings in recording studios.

I love the handling of external devices, lots of knobs. Plus I always had problems with the monitor, creating humming noises on guitars etc.
