  1. Man everyone needs to try reaper. Its like protools on steroids. 40.00 gets you life time updates and it can run with any VST you can think of.

  2. for vocals im still working with protools 7.4 lol thru a digi 003 rack but when i get my new lab I look forward to trying sum new daw’s!

  3. I have been used Pro Tools to record vocals and instruments, but Ableton to arrangment, mix & mastering.

    Cheers!

  4. Maschine 1.8 and pro tools… Was on mpc 2500, 5000, 2000xl and logic before this latest set up

  5. REASON 5 FOR THE BEATS, AUDACITY FOR THE RECORDING AND ADOBE AUDITION 3 FOR MIXING AND MASTERING THE VOCALS. KEEP IT SIMPLE AND YOUR CREATIVITY HAS NO LIMITS.

  6. REASON 5 FOR THE BEATS, AUDACITY FOR THE RECORDING AND ADOBE AUDITION 3 FOR MIXING AND MASTERING THE VOCALS. KEEP IT SIMPLE AND YOUR CREATIVITY HAS NO LIMITS. I HAVE REAPER BUT HAVE NOT GOT INTO IT YET. HAVE HEARD NOTHING BUT GREAT THINGS ABOUT IT

  7. Reason 6.5 has grown on me with the RE. But usually I use Cubase 6, since that’s the DAW I know the most. I know all the most vital hotkeys and that speeds up my workflow. Recording instruments, llke a complete drum set is real good in Cubase. This can be a process where you mic up like 12 micsand record them all at the same time, and the editing afterwards is alot easier than with other DAWs. But vocals into Reason 6.5 and then Rewire.

  8. Motu’s BPM. But it’s buggy as hell so I can’t recommend it. Yet it’s really fast and sounds good.

  9. The BEST software is what YOU feel most comfortable using.

    From a TECHNICAL standpoint, the BEST software will that which allows one to do the MOST, but that’s really only important if YOU actually NEED ALL of the functions and features included the software that allows the most.

    For example, if you’re a person who likes to sample, then plugin support MAY not be such a big priority, but if you’re a formally trained musician who prefers to produce ORIGINAL compositions, then a program’s midi capabilities and plugin support will be a HUGE priority.

    So again, it all depends on what YOU NEED and feel comfortable using.

    I like FL Studio because it was easy to learn, it’s not overly expensive and it’s VERY powerful, and CERTAINLY capable of producing PROFESSIONAL quality sound.

  10. MPC into cubase or Maschine into Studio One pro….vocals /live instruments/ mixing & mastering after this is a breeze.

  11. I mostly use FL Studio 10 for making beats and then master them and record my vocal tags in Pro Tools MP 9. However, I also from time to time make beats using my Maschine drum machine in the Maschine program. I am definitely going to check out reaper though.

  12. Hi guys, I use Maschine for all my producing and I’m just trying to figure out what works best with it for recording hip hop lyrics. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
