In an attempt to encourage some discussion, and get a feel for the MacRumor's digital audio community, I thought I'd ask the question: "What's your platform and what do you use it for?" My main DAW is Pro Tools TDM (192 I/O + Control|24), but I use Pro Tools LE (M-Box) when I'm not at polytech. I tend to use Logic Express for doing MIDI work, simply because I have more soft-synths for Logic than I do for Pro Tools. Typically I'll write the arrangement in Logic using temporary sounds and then export as a Standard MIDI File and import that into Pro Tools where I'll replace those temporary sounds and overdub audio. I also use Garageband for doing one-track Guitar/Vocal demos at 4am in the morning . I'm a second-year audio engineering student, so I'm recording bands (my passion), creating sound effects for video, writing jingles/soundtracks/etc. I tend to work with a lot of local indie bands and my engineering/production style is heavily influenced by sixties pop productions (particularly The Beach Boys, Phil Spector, The Beatles, etc.). I also write and record my own songs. So, whether you're sitting alone in your bedroom with Garageband and a built in mic, behind an SSL in a big LA studio churning out shiny radio-pop, or somewhere in between... tell us what your 'gig' is . Tim.
