Bit of a hardware change. I am on vacation now, so I'm using my laptop for music. Core 2 Duo at 2.2mhz or something with an Echo Audiofire interface.

Also, I've upgraded my main setup to include a few more things. I'm working with (or rather, WILL be working with when I get home) 3 PCs the two main desktops are connected via S/PDIF and USB to jointly run VST plugins. One smaller P1 or 486 connected via S/PDIF to run Pinguin (incredibly awesome oscilloscope/analyzer for mixing and mastering).

That Pinguin thing looks pretty full-featured. I've been looking into stuff like that for easier mastering and i don't even know what half of that stuff is :). Too bad they rip you off hardcore with the shipping and tax... It's like paying twice as much in shipping and tax. Plus a dongle? Lame. Is it really worth it?

Edit: for content and spelling:

I'm still very much an amateur, but I'm making progress I think.

Current setup:

Instruments:

Bach-Strad Bb Trumpet (haven't played in awhile)

Eb and Bb Bamboo Flutes (still learning to play)

-Hardware

Tannoy Reveal6 Passive connected to an ART SLA-1 for monitoring.

EMU Xboard 61 for midi control and recording.

Some nameless dynamic mic. Pretty sturdy though. Sounds better than the SBlive mic that came with the card :P

-Software

FL Studio 6 for most of my work.

Rosegarden4 for music scoring

Audacity in the rare instance I need to record something.

-VSTi

Oatmeal and Crystal, freebies found on KVR, capable of many different sounds. Kinda my bread and butter for my electronica-type music.

Jamstix V1.81 Demo (because I can't afford a real drummer right now, and I suck at writing percussion, a weakness I need to remedy)

DSK Brass: not -too- bad sounding to me. I might take a look at their other stuff as well.

Proteus X: came with the Xboard. Full version, not the lite version. The strings sections are handy for layering, and fleshing things out.

Other various things found on KVR.

-VST Effects

Primarily Kjaerhus's Classic series.

MDA effects from time to time. kinda gives a different color or flavor.

BlueCat audio released some freebies not long ago. FreqAnalyst is useful.

-SF2

Mostly solo instruments I've painstakingly hunted down through the garbage piles of SF2midi.com

Squidfont

A nice sounding guitar font Suzumebachi posted up on the samples thread.

some sounds from other fonts like Fluid or SGM on occasion.

The decks are two Numark TT-1625. Really basic ones. I mostly make trance and stuff like that, but some hiphop too, and scratching is useful then :-)

Just gotta learn to scratch first :<
