I've been using Cubase SX 2 for awhile now. I bought the Steinberg MI4 audio interface because I wanted a more portable recording solution for my laptop. SX 2 has been rock solid for me though, never had it crash once, and I've stressed the fuck out of it.

It came with a bible sized manual to dig into as well. The only downside to it is that because of copyright protection, I can't start SX 2 without the MI4 hooked up. It kind of acts as a "dongle" for the software. Steinberg needs to get a new protection scheme bad. Dongles suck, and I hate being a registered user looking around warez sites for cracks to get around the protection. I don't always feel like having my MI4 with me.

I use FLstudio Producer 5 for most of my drum programming and sketch pad ideas. Just because I think they have the easiest sequencer to deal with out of all the software I have. I also use Reason 3 for drums too. The Reason user community is pretty rabid. I've found so many awesome drum kits and refills on forums out there. Man, how I wish someone would code a vst drum module that could import Redrum kits. I'd be in heaven.

And Junkie, while it is not a "natural" drum kit you can download my newest kit "electrodeath" here:

Monophonic's Electrodeath Kit - http://www.analogblood.com/kits/electrodeath.zip

All of you are free to use/abuse it. (5) kicks, (5) snares, (5) hats & (5) strange. enjoy.

for those of you who rock commodore 64 emulators in your setup:

http://www.prophet64.com/

Prophet 64 is a series of synthesizer software for the Commodore 64. There are currently three editions, all MIDI compatible via DIN-sync (like the 303/606/808 etc) finally making it possible to use the C64 for contemporary music.

free and badass.

ohh pretty.
cant wait to play around with that shit.
btw, for you people looking at the audiophile 192, backup your computer first. installing it corrupted my windows (which lead to bad sectors in a harddrive making it incapable of running an OS)....

ive got a ton of stuff i use but its all shit people already know about or a few of my "secret weapons"

but all the new cool lil toys i can find ill post up here.

junkie... i know just how big your vst folder is... i dare ya to just pick ten. haha.

my top o' the plugin pile would be:

Reaktor 5
Linplug CronoX 3
PSP Lexicon PCM
Audio Damage Ronin
Antares Filter
Silverspike Rubytube
Maxx Claster Toxic
AlAlS Ultra Analog
Voxengo Curve EQ
Izotope Trash

I would be a very unhappy camper without any of these plugs in my setup.

man, i'm jealous. did you do the mod yourself? because i happen to have a 505. i've been looking at all the circuit bent stuff on ebay for about a year now. i've seen sk-1's, speak and spells, ect... you can coax some really strange sounds out of those things.

ill take that bet on 10.
that i can do.
but im not admitting some of my secret weapons either, just oddball synths ive found.
in no order, just the frist ones that enter my head.......

1)vanguard is probably my overused at the moment because im trying to reprogram my own user bank in it for a project...:-x .
2)novakill synths (they are all close to the same so i count them all as one) esp lovekiller and the new neokiller. but they are a goddamned resource hog. simon says "freeze track"
3)the korg legacy collection. the vst collection is worth every penny..
4)tapeworm. i mean i really use that fucker alot.got da tapewormmmmmm
5)guitar rig.
6)model - e. i wont say why.
7)orchestral. der.
8)minerva. static snare.. static snare.. that causes a sub hit.. static snare... granular drums own you. in a pinch, it fixes percussion problems with the (!!!)
9) evm synths. obvious.
10) reason for redrum.

i just started playing with reactor so gimme a lil bit on it.
there are a few great synths im not naming. i wish i could, but i use the presets on them too much. :-x

yea, I just put 3 toggle switches on the back. I can't remember what taps I did 'cause I moded it years ago. One switch "overdrives" the snare. Another switch distorts everthing slightly. The third should have a label that says "Do Not Touch", because it makes a lot of random rythmic noise that's pretty uncontrolable.

here's what I'd love to do with it: http://www.circuitbenders.co.uk/rolandtr.html

i also have a couple consumer keyboards that ive moded the hell out of with limited success.

finally.... someone has coded a refill unpacker for reason. i found this while browsing a dutch music forum today. the documentation is very vauge though. all it had to say was this:

1. you must be using Reason 3.0 or higher

2. place the .exe in the same directory as the orkester refill.

the link:
http://www.activerecords.net/RefillUnpacker.zip

after a little testing, i must say that it works with some refills better than others. hopefully we'll keep seeing updates to this.
