Re: more VG-99 questions

The GK-3 vs Piezo debate rages on, but most at vguitarforums.com  
would agree that the GK-3 is the way to go.  I, however, use a Godin  
LGX-SA and am as happy as a clam. The best guitar I have ever owned,  
I might add. :)

The debate on the guitar to midi rages on as well.  Some say it is  
worthless and some say otherwise.  I have gotten it to work very well  
with Live 5.2 and Reason 4 as well as a bunch of other softsynths. As  
George said It took some tweaking of the params within the 99 and the  
synths to get it going, but I am very happy.  Getting sibelius to  
track well is a different story, and one that I am still working on.   
Lead sheets and scores are not happening as well as I had hoped.  I  
highly recommend registering at vguitarforums.com and asking  
questions there.  They are most knowledgeable guys in the biz when it  
comes to this stuff.
