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.
