    majority of the producers now are using software and vst plugins. Fl studio, reason, logic and ableton are the most common right now.

    not really untyill thr final mixing stage largely....pro tools became affordable in the last 6 or 7 years for the cheaper versions.......they have been slow to develp the plug-in avaiablilty with rtas stuff.......I mean i remember in 99 when i got my full out mix+ systen that was 5 figures......protools is leader in terms of being there........I actually loved that system, I made some crazy weird stuff before it's time....

    Use whatever works for you. It's the producer's mind rather than the tools that are the important thing! Choice of tools are really down to how that individual like to work and what suits their workflow best. I will say that I think a lot of peeps including myself have moved from hardware to software as software has become increasingly more powerful.

    I used to use an MPC now I use Logic.

    Still sticking with FL. Various VST's and Mixing Plugins

    As far as hardware equipment, all I have is an Axiom 49 and some BX8A's. They get the job done.

    Still using FL. Learning more and more about the software every day. I teach Reason and Pro Tools at work. I used Maschine (my dad has it) and like that too. Also I really like the mastering section of Presonus Studio One.

    I actually have finally sat down to really learn Ableton Live 8 and jesus motherfucking christ.

    It makes FL Studio look like childs play and I've been a diehard FL user since they first released the program. There is also a MASSIVE difference in sound quality between FL and Ableton. It's seriously like night and day.

    @Obskure You should really check it. I got an idea of your workflow and I think Ableton would be a godsend for you.

    I've been interested in Ableton, but since FL released 10.5 the performance mode of FL has been pretty damn interesting. I have a copy of Live Lite that came with the MPD, but I never installed it. I'll look into it. FL is rumored to be going 64-bit soon.
