Let me then begin by recommending LennarDigitals Sylenth1

It's a great working horse for leads, basses and everything analog. It sounds great and it's very easy to use. It's the foundation of most tracks I produce these days.

Ableton Live

I've previously used FL Studio and Reason, and although they mostly do the same things, Live's workflow is to me far more efficient. The session view grid system gives you a more dynamic approach to structuring and experimenting, as you can for example implement one part from the intro in the chorus, immediately jump to the outro, automate actions for single elements, such as (play next, play previous, random, repeat etc.). Generally, I just find it very simple to work with.

www.ableton.com/live

Also, I got Spectrasonics' new synth Omnisphere some weeks ago. I haven't really gotten in depth with it yet, but after discovering the sample source section, I've enjoyed it very much happy The strings and choirs sound fantastic

By the way, shouldn't this thread be in the "production equipment" section? wink

Ableton Live (I've used every other sequencer in my past, but nothing hits as good as ableton)

here's my take

- Logic Pro
the possibilities on this bad boy are endless, yea it does take a while to wrap your head around, yes logic does require time and patience, but once the full entire capability of logic is discovered, wow. . . . is all i can say-

the only thing i've ever had to complain about was the time and pitch algorithm plugins, which aren't exactly the best, so invest in Melodyne - seriously this set up is all you'll EVER need

[URL=http://imageshack.us] [/URL]

but
a musician likes options, so. . .

- Ableton
the interface is very user friendly, instruments are extremely clean sounding, altho there are boundaries in Ableton, limiting some creativity, i do love using it day to day

what i do is create the tracks off logic first, then bounce it to Ableton n mess with the effect automation there (shh, that's my secret!)

i've saved up and waited forever for a setup like this, nothing more i could ever ask for

thanks greyna.

So you seem to prefer Logic to Ableton ?

yea i mean if i had to choose, i can honestly live without ableton- but, for my love of special effects, i choose to use both-

but to answer your question, yes, logic over ableton

for anyone interested, go to youtube and type in sflogicninja and check out his tutorials.. he goes over everything from intermediate to extremely advanced stuff- awesome dude

i've found these to be an extremely valuable investment for me, one, for logic's gigantic sample and instrument library, and two, for abletons effect plugins and just overall cleanliness

let me kno if any of you got anyother questions! i'd be glad to answer
