Macbook pro, 2.66 Ghz duel core processor with 4 gigs of ram
Ableton live – This is my “host” program. It holds all of my plug-ins and I use it to trigger drum and keys loops as well as run the click (metronome). Live’s audio and midi effects is probably the biggest component I use to achieve my sound
Propellerhead Reason – This is my main plug in program. I use this program from my piano sounds as well as many other synth, pad and string patches. I will occasionally create a drum loop from reason as well
Native instruments komplete 5 – Although some of the programs in komplete I rarely ever use, b4, Elektrik piano and absynth are pretty regularly used in my set up. B4 has an incredible b3 organ sound bank, and Electrik piano has outstanding rhodes patches
Spectrasonics omnisphere – This is the program I use for many of my pads and some of my synths. Omnisphere has phenomenal atmospheric sounds
Guru – In my humble opinion, the best beat-making software out there
Here’s a brief overview of all the plugins and how I set up my live scene
Motu 828 ultralite mk3 – This is my audio and midi interface. Motu has been amazingly consistent and has pretty good audio conversion for the price.
Hope this helps! Feel free to ask any questions in the comment section about anything in my set up.
