Hi guys, i prefere to use software than hardware,
What's about you ?
Software. witouth a doubt.
Just much faster and easier to use.
Software, faster and easier to learn for me.
High Quality FL Studio Tutorials
Cheaper, faster, it doesn't take up space in your bedroom, and most importantly... you can unplug your laptop and take your studio anywhere you go.
Lots of producers have stated that the argument over the sound quality of soft synths vs hardware synths is BS.

Donít worry about people stealing an idea. If itís original, you will have to ram it down their throats.
Software, because there is virtually no limit to how many presets I can make! <<that a common problem in harware. I can mix various plugin sources in one place and render in the same space. No batch dumps, stems, or excessive cables. Lower risk of fire.

you'll never get a true analogue sound with software
with hip hop you need the looseness of playing in things live. if its all quantized up neatly sounds far to rigid for hip hop. but perfect for dance
You can record software without quantize...also most Daws offer groove quantizing. In Ableton, I can sample the midi or audio swing of an MPC60 and extract the groove. Then apply different grooves to individual clips/regions. To sweeten up the signal, I run through some UAD plugs. If I really want that raw sound, I can two-track the master into a tube compressor. But producing in the box is at a new highly competitive level that is constantly evolving.

yeah thats what i do in my daw just keep it un-quantized.
i just feel hardware is and always will be the way forward. software is brilliant as it's so easily accessible and most of it can be gotten for free. but at the same time its cheapened the value of actually making the music.
its what the digital age has done to music. it all has its pros and cons
look at turntables over serato its the same argument.

Only hardware I see as irreplaceable at this is are preamps. They seem to hold their value well. Companies like UAD and Focusrite believe they can improve hardware modeling significantly over time. The UAD Apollo is probably the biggest successful experiment of this since Waves Rack. For a company that makes the 1176, TwinFinity, etc I think they'll make a great hybrid system to follow the Apollo after thunderbolt is officially OS universal. For now hardware still has relevance for the HD finish...until audio interfaces start shipping with high end transformers and preamps.
