Post Your software setup?
I'm wondering what most ppl use as their basic setup in software.

Sequencing, Mastering, Editing, Instruments, FX?

My setup:

Sequencing: I've been working with FL Studio for years but I'm now, slowly but surely, learning Sonar. It's absolutely an amazing piece of software!

Mastering: Waves Bundle 4 (Comp, EQ, Limiting)

Editing: Soundforge v6 (I should get it updated)

Instruments: Since I started producing downtempo stuff, I've started using more and more virtual instruments, rather than synths. Stuff like NI Elektric Piano, EQWL Symphonic Orchestra, Phantom Horns, Steinberg The Grand, etc.

FX: Ohmboyz Delay (H), Waves Bundle 4, TC Works Native Bundle

Sequencing : I use Renoise. I fell in love with Fasttracker 2 back then, and never once wanted something else than that kind of rusty old interface with hex numbers everywhere :love:
Also, it's one of the cheapest product on the market with as much capabilities than sequencers like cubase, logic, ...

Mastering : Izotope Ozone 3. Great soft :)

Editing: Soundforge too, it's a nice tool

Instruments: Zeta++ has not disapointed me till now and I hope I still can get a lot of nice sounds from it

FX: various vsts, i use a lot of free ones. Also, antares filter / tube = great

as possible,i try to buy the stuff i use the most, even if it's hard to find good tools for a a cheap price.

I can only afford Live 5 for the moment :cry:

(but i'm not much of a producer)

Anybody working on Mac?

maybe start with telling your OS

EDIT: -> upgraded to Live 7

I'm working on a mac,
but at the moment there's no osx installed on it :P

Using stuff like Ardour2, Jamin, a lot of LADSPA plugins, Hydrogen, seq24.
But the most important part of the setup if jackd, the audio server.
It's serves for very flexible routing between audio/midi inputs and outputs.

I'm working on a pc.

Sequencing: FL 6 and Cubase (mixdown with my hardware mixer)

Mastering, Comp, EQ: Waves plugins (my favourite plugins), PSP vintagewarmer, Classic plugins (dunno the maker, but it's free!)

Instruments: NI Massive (really great for DnB!)

FX: PSP Camelphat (really nice for unexpected effects!)

I think I forgot a couple of vst's because I'm not at home, but I'll update this later!

What are you using as analyser? I use the one from Waves.
