This might seem really obvious, but my most essential studio tool is my Mac Pro desktop. For years I used to use a little G4 laptop which would always freeze and max out on the CPU so, finally in 2009 I bought my first proper big, fast machine. Having a powerful computer means you can get through ideas a whole lot quicker and load lots more information into the DAW, whether that be internal/ external midi signals or audio, before it starts to snap and crackle.
My studio consists of a Mac Pro running Logic Pro, a Korg R3, An200, Dx200 Dave Smith Evolver and a shed-load of silly percussion instruments I use to record with. As for plug-ins, its pretty standard: Waves, Kontakt 5, The Audio Realism pack, Kore, Reaktor 5 and GTR Rig 3. I try to use hardware and software together. I do love hardware, but in the past I’ve found it quite temperamental – though I like the tactility and the happy accidents you can have. I’ve hit the wrong button or done something by mistake so many times, only to find the machine has performed some crazy trickery and made the most amazing sound or pattern.
My workflow and the instruments I use are always changing, but if there’s one constant it’s my Mac Pro.
