Instruments

Some of the software I use for my production and other stuff used for electronic music.

Digital Audio Workstation (DAW)

FL Studio

splash-flstudio

I primarily use FL Studio for composition and audio editing. I’ve found it to be a powerful and user-friendly program.

Ableton

download

Ableton live is great for audio editing and mixing in a live-friendly environment.

Yeco

Really user-friendly touch-screen emulator for Ableton Live.

 

Synths

Omnisphere

Omnisphere-2-Slide-05

Amazing do-it-all instrument. I use it in nearly every project.

Serum

Vicious-Dubstep-Growl-Synths-in-Serum-Synth

The easiest to use top quality synth on the market in my opinion. Amazing instrument. Basically my go-to synth.

Sylenth1

sylenth1___lt_skin__updated__by_pureav

Sylenth was the first synth I ever learned and I still use it in nearly every project. It doesn’t have the most amazing sound but it still has a place in any producers arsenal.

Massive

native-instruments-massive-synth-xl

Massive has quite the reputation. I don’t love using it, but Massive sounds are Massive sounds. I like to render out WAVs of sounds I like in massive and use them as oscillators in Serum, combining the best of both.

Synthmaster

synthmasteraax

I have only demo’d Synthmaster, but it will be the next synth I purchase. It has an extensive library of quality, useable sounds, and it is a very robust synthesizer. Another versatile, go-to synth.

REFX Nexus

nexus230

Nexus  is an interesting synth. Sometimes I love it, sometimes I don’t. It does make some good sounds with little to no effort, and it does have basic programmability. Given its ease of use and extensive preset libraries, Nexus is good for beginners and producers who just need to grab a sound quick.

DJ/Mixing

NI Traktor

Traktor-Kontrol-S8
Traktor has the unique ability to mix songs in stem format where each song is broken down in to 4 parts, ie. percussion, bass, synths, vocals. This allows for much more custom and interesting mixes.

Stem Creator

STEMS_from_Cubase_intro_750x400px

This program allows you to render your prepared songs into the MP4 .stems format.

Deckadance

Deckadance

Classic DJ mixing software.

Mixx

mixx-review-header

Good free DJ program.

Touch Innovations

matrixcardblackborder2

Kick-ass touch-screen system for DJs.
