Just interested in what kit people are using to produce their tunes, 'cos I'm impressed with some of the stuff I've downloaded from people here. Softsynths users or hardware purists? This is my setup: Cubase 5 Soundforge 4.5 Reaktor 3 (this softsynth is a work of pure genius!) HALion (soft-sampler) Battery (soft-drumsampler) Various plugin FX for cubase M1 Korg (old, but still useful) PIII 800MHz 190Mb RAM SB Live soundcard (this needs changing) It seems to be mostly software, when considering how little I earn and the ease you can d/l things from the net, it's no surprise. My PC can just about handle the load, but if I try and get too fancy with the FX or have too man softsynths running, it punishes me. I suppose that's the major drawback. Any Reaktor users out there?
