  1. Man, my set up has changed so much.. I was rockin the Fantom G8 with Logic Pro, Pro Tools, and Maschine.. I learned after spending all that money, that its about keeping it simple and just improving my workflow.. SO now.. I have Mac Pro tower, M-Audio keystation 88 midi, Reason 5, Logic pro/ pro tools, with Akai MPD 32 and a bunch of kits, and vst’s. I sold the fantom, because it’s more for stage performances, even though i miss the weighted keys.

  2. Oh, forgot,, Rockit 8’s monitors and sold the M-Audio Project Mix I/O ( bad faders, and drivers) went back to the M-Audio fast track pro.. I do want that Apogee Ensemble. Great mic pre’s and coverters and overall sonic quality.

  3. KRK Rokit G2’s, HP Elitebook, Studio One Pro, Reason 5, Maschine, Behringer umx610, Korg MicroKey, Saffire 6 usb, audio technica lp120, and a ton of vst’s

  4. My setup is base around powerbook G4 laptop
    with Protools 7.4 Reason 4.0 emu proteus 2000 motif rack ,radium 49 key controller,
    Ibanez guitar for jazz funk and rock style playing & a old beat up acoustic guitar for slide playing. but all that doesn’t matter its how create with what you have.

  5. At work: ProTools 8 HD. Mostly use MIDI (with a Roland keyboard controller). I also use a Motif Rack.

    At home or on the go: ProTools LE, Motif 7, Garageband, and a bunch of iPhone apps (Groovemaker, Nanostudio, iDrum, Beatmaker, Sampletank, Maschine, etc.).

    If I get inspired, I just use what I have on hand to get some ideas out and try to flesh it out when I get back to the studio…

  6. Well……..Just my PC, it doesn’t work that fast but it can get the Job Done.
    -God Bless everyone-

  11. I use Reaper, MPC 4000, Keystation 61 midi keyboard, records, and mad vsts. I love Reaper’s timestretching and I love its sequencer. Reaper is the most underated DAW out there. Its much better than Pro Tools and Cubase. Cant speak for Logic though because I’ve never used it.
