The "who uses what" thread

Recommended Posts

It seems like a common question asked by people new to the forums is "what program does (remixer) use." While we have a lot of threads about what can be used, one has to do a bit of searching in some cases to find out what specific remixers actually DO use. And honestly, I'm also curious as to what some of my fellow remixers use.

So why not start a thread where remixers simply say what programs/gear/whatever they use in their remixes? Could be used to educate n00bs and satisfy the curiosity of veterans as well.

I'll kick it off.

A good advice to people who can't afford VST's, they can get a free soundfont-VST from:


There is plenty of free Soundfonts on the web, and many of them are very good!!! I do always use soundfonts for the organ sounds!!!

  • -FL Studio for 95% of everything.
    -Cool Edit [maybe I should upgrade?] for sample recording [e.g. capturing the audio from a .swf advertisement], which I do a lot, and final trimmings of my songs.
    -Modplug Tracker for chiptunes.
    -2nd hand Kawaii K11 for MIDI control

So yeah, my setup is pretty minimal.

I smell a lot of warez users in here - so who among us is honest?

Anyway... main weapon of Choice is Cubase SX3, for engineering it's Wavelab 4.

The rest can be found on my homepage: Equipment List

(might not work with IE5.5 and below, you have to scroll by dragging the text)

This list lacks a couple of stuff however that got recently added:

- Propellerhead ReBirth RB-338 v2.x

- Wusik Wusikstation v1

- Rayzoon Jamstix

- Steinberg Waldorf Edition (PPG Wave 2.v, Attack, D-Pole)

- Peter Siedlaczek Complete Classical Collection

- HG Fortune STS-21 and ProtoPlasmTS *still testing before final implementation*

- Boris K Synthesizer Bundle (Meddle, Intro, VS Oscilloscope) *still testing before final implementation*

Also there's a typo on the page:

I'm not using "Elemental Audio Inspector" anymore, but "Elemental Audio Inspector XL". I definitely need to update that page.

...oh wait. this isn't the Christmas Wishlist thread.


I use FL Studio 6 for overall stuffs. Do some post in CoolEdit.

My sounds come from Kompakt, Broomstick Bass, LoungeLizard and Ravity, as well as a shitton of drum samples from Modernbeats.com. I also make use of the FL plugins (mainly to thicken the bass sound using 3xosc).

I have an edirol midi controller, three guitars (two electric, one acoustic), a pair of 70$ headphones, and a AT2020 mic that runs in through a TubePre.

This is getting off-topic, but after pirating Fruityloops/FL Studio since version 1, I finally broke down and bought it last week. For what it can do and how much I use it, it's damn cheap. Lifetime updates are another incentive.

My guitar is also warez. MWAHAHAHA!

I just like how Xelebes mixed up da warez and da loot.

Actually, I got into this stuff with pirating, but after window shopping around I chose Cubase and got it for Christmas. Then my dad and I made our studio, and got complete with it. My only wave editor is a cracked version of audition, (but I feel bad so I just use audacity for now), but version 2.0 has come out and looks nice, so I may want to go pick that up.

I wrote that comment because EKM has his list a lo of tools like Ableton Live, Cubase SX and Reason, etc.

So this sure is some nice stuff :nicework:

...or a warez list, cause those tools sure aren't cheap. And it was strange that somebody uses at least 4 different sequencers at the same time, and most of them with the same possibilties.

Nobody has a white vest (we could make a long discussion out of it), but this screamed for a comment. Sorry about that.

Back on Topic, please.


Oh yeah,I totally forgot on page 1 that I also have ReBirth 388 v2.x in my equipment list.
