first of all I am really thankful for all your answers an interest in this post. I will try to adress a survey from now one at least once a month.

See my answers to the comments below.

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 ;)

Benztown: Cool, we run a HD 3 Accel in the big studio. I also love the Transfuser, it is a great tool for Music Production as well. I think it would be cool, if you could write a blog post about the Transfuser and its opportunities.

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.

Benztown: Cucker is in the house. Love the L3 as well, same with the  L2. Best Limiters on earth in my opinion. How about the SSL 4000. Can you send me a screenshot for VO you use – so I post with your comment?

Andrew Choiniere says:

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.

Benztown: I never worked on Nuendo, but would love to check it out one day.  I love T-Racks as well. Is there any specific plugIn you like most and why?

Pete says:

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 ;)

Benztown : I would take the Aphex as well :). Will check out the Nectar soon. Here is the demo link. There are great presets in Izoptope plugINs in general.

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)

Benztown: The gold bundle is great. Waves still is my first choice very often. Vegas is not often been used in Europe. Is there any advantages compared to ProTools?

  1. Gavan says:

    Not really advantages for Vegas over Pro Tools. I personally like it better, but I am on PC based systems. Vegas is a Windows only app, and many of the PT users prefer working on macs. It’s also a great app for video editing, in the way that it handles video just like it would handle audio. Very straightforward and easy to use.
