I use this machine to process and edit all my sounds. The overkill amount of RAM is needed for making music
as I use the EastWest Hollywood Platinum Orchestra library containing 1.6 million 24 bit multi-mic samples :)
Laptop, Intel i7 4-core, Samsung Chronos series 7
The laptop is only used when I travel.
Sound Interface: RME Babyface
Audio quality, and for me more importantly driver stability, of this interface is great. I use this interface
to bring the sound to my studio monitors and headphones. (I previously had Native Instruments Komplete 6 until
I found out that "Komplete" refers to the fact it is complete rubbish. I, like so many others, had problems
with sound artefacts and USB-driver stability that I wouldn't even give the NIK6 to my worst enemy.)
Studio Monitors: KRK Rokit 5
I'm fairly happy with these small yellow pair of studio monitors. I do have some "hum" issues despite using
high quality balanced and shielded cables as they appear to be affected and disturbed by WiFi. I use my
headphones more often than not so these are mainly used to verify mixes.
Headphones: Audio Technica ATH-M50
The best headphones I've had so far. Great audio quality, very comfortable, dual-sized audio plug, and
"sort of" portable.
MIDI Keyboard 1: Roland FP-7 (88 keys)
MIDI Keyboard 2: Nektar Impact LX49 (49 keys)
Steinberg Cubase 7.5
Cubase is my main DAW.
PreSonus Studio One 3
I use Studio One sometimes, I like the look and feel of it.
iZotope Ozone 7 Advanced
Used for mastering my tracks.
Sony Sound Forge Pro 11
I master most of my tracks in Sound Forge.
Izotope RX5 Audio Editor (Advanced)
I mainly use this for sound effects, but maybe it'll come in hand for music one day too.
