I'm looking into writing symphonic parts in my song writing, what are some programs that I should look into for notation, playback and recording?

Thx in advance.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Finale or Sibelius for notation, for playback you are going to want a really good sample set, Sibelius and Finale both come with one, but it sucks, I suggest the one that EastWest has out.
