    Default So, what's your weapon of choice?

    Which tools are you using when creating music? Tracker? Sequencer? Pure hardware? Do tell!

    Myself, I'm a bit ambivalent what to use, actually, since I really haven't made that much music for the last ten years or so, but my last two tracks (Combat Crazy/remix.kwed.org and Comic Bakery/Remix64 vol. 3 - Syntax Era) were created with Cubase on the PC and Logic Pro on the Mac respectively. Now I'm twiddling around a bit with Renoise so we'll see where that ends.

    What do you guys'n'gals use?

    Milkytracker, Renoise.

    I guess my first program was Deluxe music construction set by EA on Amiga in 1986 or 87 (before Sonix or Soundtracker), now that was a weird one, it even tried to sing with Amiga speech iirc

    I've been Buzz Modular Studio user since it's early days in late 90's. I don't think I've come to the end of my journey yet. Especially since Jeskola decided to revitalize the code. VST support is much better thank to Polac. I also use Audacity for some mastering. Buzz is not great at this in my opinion. I guess the reason I love buzz so much is it's the best of both the tracking world and sequencing worlds.

    Huh, I wonder if the reason the Jeskola guys brought it back after YEARS of prompting was that some folks such as Paniq have basically redone it (:

    http://code.google.com/p/aldrin-sequ...ki/Screenshots

    (I do believe this is what Paniq is using, mostly, for composing now. I could be wrong, as, well, I'm not Paniq. But you will notice that the actual screenshots have 'paniq' in the filenames (:

    Paniq _is_ using/developing on this.)

    Im using MadTracker now for more than a year. Its a bit like the good old StarTrekker on Amiga. Of course the whole VST support and the 64 tracks are makeing it a lot more comfortable but the feeling is still the same. At least for me I think that Renoise is much better but until now i was too lazy to get into Renoise. But one day i will switch for sure...

    I tried out some sequencers like FL, Cubase, Reason and Ableton but i really have no clue how to get any sound out of it. Its just too confusing to me. Maybe im not clever enough for sequencers...

    I tried both FL and Reason and was not impressed with the interface. I can't stand step sequencers and Piano rolls. Gives me a headache everytime! I still love the all inclusiveness of having the tracker screen in front of me with all that power at your fingertips. Renoise looks promising if I could ever stop drinking Jeskola.

    For solo projects I am using a pumped up Amiga 1200 (68040 32 mb) with octamed pro as a sequencer to steer all the midi stuff,mastering is done thru a spirit soundcraft mixer on a old 98 pc with a maxi studio isis soundcard (loving the sound of it)......I know old fashioned but loving it.....

    When working with Erwin (Tron) and my bro (A0D) its mostly Reason......

    Hardware:

    Monitoring : 2x Genelec 8030 APM + Profel PS100SUB
    Audio interface: M-Audio Delta 1010LT
    Synths: Access Virus Indigo 2 (Virus C), x0xb0x (303 clone, frickin' AWESOME)
    Drum Machine: Korg Electribe EMX-1 (Groovebox, contains a synth etc.)
    Processing: Line 6 PodXT, TC Electronics Finalizer Express
    Guitar: Epiphone SG-400 "Maestro Tremolo" (Gibson clone)

    I've also got a Novation X-Station audio interface / keyboard / synthesizer as a "mobile studio setup" which I use with my laptop. It rules.

    Also as a DJ I've got a pair of Technics SL-1210 MK5's vinyl turntables and a Ecler NUO5 mixer.

    Software:

    I use FL Studio 8 with a large array of plugins:

    Synths: Native Instruments Massive, FM8, GForce Minimonsta, reFX z3ta+, reFX Nexus and of course, 3xOsc.

    Effects/processing: Waves SSL-4000 bundle, Diamond bundle, Uhbik U-He bundle, Ohmforce Ohmboyz and Ohmicide, Kjaerhus Audio Classic pack (freeware, check it out), Camel Audio CamelPhat 3.

    There's much other stuff that I use, but those are the ones I can't live without.
