Logic 9 – it’s amazing. Also just bought EWQLSO gold with 50% off – seems like a good investment if anyone’s interested (I guess anyway, I’ve still not got it!)
Cubase 6.5 and Presonus Studio One. Both excellent DAWS but when it comes to composing I’m starting to use Studio One more so because it’s just quicker to work with. All Drag and drop functionality, better window management and there’s a neat feature that allows you to view all your midi tracks in the edit window and score each part without having to window hop.
Mainly Ableton, but Cubase as well.
If my project is intricate I use Cubase. If my project is simple I use FL Studio.
I use Logic and third party plug-in.
Pro Tools here – but we still have the lifetime free update FL Studio license! ...and Sound Forge for the fast edits, it’s awesome!
