Equipment

I occasionally receive questions about my hardware & software setup. Here's a list of what I'm using, as of December 2009. (In all likelihood, I'll forget to update this for the next two years.)

If you want to read about how I actually use all of this equipment to make a piece of music, read about my writing process here.
