    DAWs and Plugins

    Since we have one of these for visual art, I decided to make one for music.

    I use FL Studio as my DAW. Tried Cubase, hated it.
    On the plugin side, Synth1, Kontakt 5, Bass Station, RealLPC, AmpliTube and many, many others.

    I also happen to have the Orange Tree guitar libraries.
    Meanwhile, in #CoE...

    I have Kontakt, myself, though I'm considering switching to MachFive for the sake of the UVI libraries. As for what else I have, the most notable for me is Logic Pro as a DAW, and then Omnisphere, Arturia Prophet V, EWQLSO Gold, Distorted Reality 1 and 2, UVI The Beast, EmulationOne and EmulationTwo, Shreddage II, and lots of less notable sample libraries mostly dedicated to vintage synthesizers. I also have some hardware synths: a Korg TR-Rack and a Roland JV2080.

    I also have the SSD Platinum library because I can't be assed to upgrade to v4.

    Honestly, AmpliTube would be a million times better if IK didn't microtransaction the Hell out of it. It's still a great plugin, though.

    I could tell you'd be happy to hear I have an electric guitar library. XD

    I personally use Guitar Rig 5, which came with my order of Komplete, as an amp.

    I have a collection of guitars -- Shreddage, Strawberry, Evo Acoustic, RealGuitar, RealLPC and RealStrat. Obviously, I use AmpliTube. Occasionally I use TH2, though. Mostly for clean electrics.

    Wish I could afford QLSO but I'm flat broke after blowing money on the above. I use SSO and EDIROL Orchestral, though. I wish EastWest and others would just ditch dongles. You're going to get more sales if you use DRM that gets out of the end-user's way.

    Ableton Live 8(suite), Renoise 2.8,Audacity, puredata
    basically just native FX, along with some random free VST, in particular Kammerl Kaske Warm Distortion.
    DSI Mopho desktop
    Korg ESX1
    m-audio trigger finger, also an oxygen 49
    novation launchpad
    arduinome


    and by the end of this year I intend on buying a MOTU 828mk2, some monitors (probably yamaha hsm50 I think) and an Elektron OT. I was going to go for a machinedrum because i fucking love the machinedrum but it seems like the OT is better as a center-piece, hardware DAW equivalent which is what I need.


    I use native FX because honestly they just fuckin work. No bullshit, rarely any crashing issues. I use Live mostly right now, and honestly just use Operator for almost all of my in the box synthesis. I use my Mopho now too obviously but until I get an interface i don't have a high quality way to record it.
