I just want to know what do you think is better in terms of music software do you prefer sequencing or notation software? I quite sure u are probably going to say notation. for me though it depends on the style of music I'm composing for. If I'm composing a techno or dance song I would use a sequencer no questions asked but if it were a pop song or love ballad I would use finale. Actually I think I use finale more than any other music related program on my pc

This is very interesting and slim qestion.
When you use Hyperscribe it maybe called sequencing, but when you are typing or writting music into the score by yourself it will be notation of course!

I never figured out what all this envelope stuff was. To me, music is notated on staves. I am sure that sequencers can do wonderful things, but I've always thought of that as sound engineering, rather than composition.

It really are two completely differend things:

Finale is a great notation program, which I use every day, but only for music which is to be performed by real musicians. The realtime options in Finale are nice, but absolutely not good enough to replace a sequencer.

To me there are different ways of composing. When I compose in Finale, it is a bit more a technical composition, because the rules (if they exist) are more clearely visible. Composing in a sequenser is a bit more done by using my ears.

 

And as you said, the style wich I'm composing in and the purpose of the music are also importent by the choice.
