This has probally been done before but just it will be upto date :D

the music i create mainly is Reason or fruityloops (fl studio) though it seems fruity seems unstable alot over the updates or probally me pushing it too far with my vst plugins :D

I have a Korg microkorg though its mostly used as a midi keyboard and a very basic yamaha psr170 that was for midi too
and my PC :)
AMD 2600
512mb
ATI 265mb RADEON 9600XT
Creative sound blaster Audigy2 ZS
2x 80gig hd's

I'm currently trying to win a bid at ebay for a nice korg triton le 61 key synth/workstation, if i win, (a big if!;) it should keep me really busy :D

also if anyone has a triton le or used one, whats your opinion on it?

Pentium 4 2.5 ghz
768 Mb ram
ATI AIW Radeon 9800 Pro
Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS
Cakewalk Sonar 5 Producer Edition
FL Studio 5 Producer Edition
MAGIX Audio Studio 5
Yamaha PSR 248 (for midi)
Roland MT-32 Synthesizer
Roland MT-200 Synthesizer
Yamaha ERG-121 Elec Guitar
Boss GT-6 Effects Processor

I'm looking to get a Roland SC-55 or SC-88/88pro/8820 down the road sometime somehow. I also have a variety of soundfonts too many to name but include Atomic Soundfont and RealFont 2.1. I'm also looking into getting an Audigy 2 ZA Platinum so I can have the nice console that fits into a hard drive slot to plug all kinds of plugs into. Would be a lot easier and more efficient than the current jury-rig setup I have now.

MusicallyInspired, I'm interested to know why you have all of the following programs:

Cakewalk Sonar 5 Producer Edition
FL Studio 5 Producer Edition
MAGIX Audio Studio 5

What do you use them for?

My setup is:

Pentium 4 3.0 GHz PC running Windows XP Pro
Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro
Cakewalk Home Studio 2004 XL
Cakewalk Dimension Pro
EDIROL VSC DX instrument
Cakewalk MP3 Encoder
Casio CTK-630 keyboard

I had MAGIX Audio Studio 5 for recording all of my tracks together into a mix. I used FL Studio 5 for sequencing drums and maybe a bit of synth here and there. I recently got a hold of Sonar 5 which does both and am attempting to figure out how it works now. If it works with me (and it probably will) I'll ditch MAGIX and probably FL Studio as well if Sonar will do MIDI sequencing which I think it does.

Yes, I thought there was some crossover there! :) Thanks for the explanation.

Have you ever used Cakewalk Home Studio?  Do you know how it compares to Sonar?

No I haven't touched any other Cakewalk programs other than an old Cakewalk Professional for Win 3.1 (that being MIDI only) so I couldn't comment on that, sorry.
