I want to try a first survey here over the weekend. Please tell the other guys, which production systems / software do you use and what is your favourite outboard gear and plugIN(s)a nd maybe a short why that is. I am happy to make all comments and answers public over the weekend and discuss the results on Monday. Looking forward to hear from you all.

Cheers and nice weekend.

    My DAW is a Pro Tools HD2 system & my favorite plug’in is the Transfuser from Digidesign/Avid. A very cool plug with a lots of possibility & fx on it. 1 everything run on the tempo, love it 😉

    I use Adobe 1.5. Stable. Trustworthy. I can do just about anything with it you can do on Pro Tools. I also use Sony Vegas 8.0.

    My favorite “go to” plugs… L1, C1 comp/gate, SSL 4000 compressor… and Waves REQ6 and L2/L3. I start with those then work from there.

  3. I use Nuendo 3.2 and it work A1…. and i don’t know anyone who is using Nuendo. ahah.
    Plugins ? Waves bundle, T-Racks, PSP Nitro, FabFilter, speakerphone… those are the main one.

    Adobe Audition 3.0.1 and Pro Tools M-Powered for most demanding vocal stuff. But I still like working on Audition most of the time. As for the plugs, hmmm… Waves L3, Waves MetaFlanger, API 2500/SSL compressors, Waves REQ6 (yeah, me too) and Izotope Ozone. These days I’m testing new Izotope’s “Nectar” and I’m sure this thing will be my next *must have.
    Outboard gear? My only desire is Aphex 230 Master Voice Channel and I’m planning to get one soon 😉

    I’ve used Audition, Vegas, Pro Tools, Sonar…

    But now I use Cockos Reaper (www.reaper.fm) and LOVE it! So much more intuitive, and it is such a great price as well.

    As for plugs, I use the Waves Gold bundle, and I love the BBE Sonic Sweet ($99)
