I am looking for the most inexpensive way to accomplish the following tasks:
1) Record a midi performance including pitch bends into a sequencer program (pc or mac) that provides a click, has the ability to quantize as it records, and allows me to move notes around later with some kind of GUI.
2) Apply a vst plugin to this midi performance with the pitch bends intact. (and then of course render a wav or mp3)
I have the following and software: pc, mac, several keyboards that can be midi controllers, several vst plugins.
I would like the absolute simplest solution, but I'm willing to buy some software.
Thanks so much for your advice.
