I've used this in the past. It's a very powerful, professional program. Good for classical music, but not so much for newer styles, ie blues or rock. Quality of sound for instruments depends on the quality of the sound library. Writing for non-classical guitar and getting it to play the sounds in your head can be tricky, but 7 times out of 10 it gets the point across. The UI leaves some things to be desired; mostly point-and-click. Records to various file formats, as well as to an audio CD. Very nice, I reccomend it.

Expensive though.
