    Everybody major..

    Only dudes im into that use software based setups are the whole Odd Future qlique, and they get criticized for sounding low quality.

    This isnt a hardware vs software thread, Im just curious as to why the people at the very top of the game lean towards hardware.

    A couple of things come to mind...

    * They probably DO use DAWs - if only for recording the output of their hardware setups
    * If you see a video of a high-profile producer working out in his/her studio, it's obviously much cooler to bang on an MPC or twist the knobs of a synth or a big-ass console instead of mousing around in a DAW
    * They've been at this for a long time and are used to their hardware workflow
    * They have engineers to do their dirty work - ie. they just do the groundwork and the engineers handle the DAW stuff
    * They're rich and can afford pretty much whatever they want

    And of course that list is only a small slice of big-name mainstream producers. There's plenty of major producers out there that aren't in the limelight (and there's plenty of other kinds of music than what these dudes do).

    Most of the producers on this list haven't been relevant in years

    Most hit producers today use the software you mentioned

    Tim is a big native instruments head btw

    Um sorry to tell you, but a lot of big name producers uses software such as Reason, FL, Logic and more. There are many who use just hardware but it's more common to see a big name producer using Reason, FL, or Logic these days.

    I disagree...Just Blaze uses Logic... so does Pharrell.
