To answer your question. I just pick a midi style,make my tune in B.I.A.B, then make midi file,and load in real band. Then i start looking for real files that will fit my tune.I use a lot of files before I put it all together.For each file I use plugins,fine tune them, then record them to my external recorder. I'm a hands on person. I do use plugins from Adobe. When it fits my ear I make a wave file in my Adobe CS5.5.That's about it.I just wish I had more options for my style of music.Sure would like to have some real strings.
Thanks for asking,have a great day.
