The very first software what Ive used to make "music", was Turbo Pascal...
Ive just programmed a melody, by bleeping the internal speaker of my old 286 IBM...I remember how shit was calculating the notes to frequencies...

Then use FT2 for a while, but after around a year just switched to Impulse Tracker, I just loved it...

Then tried almost every software, Cubase (the old vst version), FL studio, Ableton the 3rd, Reason for a year, then Logic 5...

In 2006 just installed a hacked version of Tiger to my PC...just blowed my mind...

Then bought a mac, and my first sampler, and Akai S2000...

Ive tried a lot of different hardwares, but the current config is enough for me. An E6400 Ultra and an S1100 HD, with some outboards, and a big Ukraine 20ch mixing desk...

I miss the handson expiernce. I used it tell it totally glitched out and would change the sounds i saved in banks and the settings (and espically for cut off knob, ect) it was like it got haunted. Eek
Ok i guess if your down with randomness, but i like a bit more control over my sound..Hahaha

never heard the uad plate, but i imagine it sounds better...

I am able to find a reverb sound that I want pretty quickly with EOS, I was always a bit unsure about the hi end on the Arts Acoustic one..

But having said that the new update to Arts Acoustic reverb came with some really good new presets for room sounds...

You can buy it and get a refund if you dont like it... (thats their strange demo policy)
