My primary electric is a old and beaten-up Samick-brand PRS knockoff with Dragon II pickups. Used to sound incredible, but now it's past it's prime due to abuse and weather damage [it's a hand-me-down, by the way.. I would have taken much better care of it from the start]. I currently don't have my own amp [aside from a piece-of-shit low-end 50 watt Laney that barely even serves as a practice amp], but I just use my brother's Peavey XXL halfstack when possible. I also use his guitar as much as I can.. A Schecter C-1 Classic. Sounds amazing..

My acoustic is a $300 Yamaha, dunno the exact model. It sounds really nice, but it's gotten all dusty and grimey over time.. it needs to be professionally cleaned and have new machineheads/tuners/whatever you call them put on. Then it'll be back to its former ass-kicking self.

As for my software setup, I have FL Studio 5 Producer Edition [with a whole slew of various extra VSTs and soundfonts I've gathered from various places] and CoolEdit Pro 2. I could really use a new guitar amp and more access to good mics.. Then I'd be beyond set.

I've got both electric (a Yamaha Pacifica) and an acoustic (Yamaha DW-15) guitars, though I mostly play my electric lol. I also have a small 10-watt Roland guitar amp, a Sennheiser e815S dynamic mic, a 100-watt Yamaha mic amp (wow, it seems that I have a lot of Yamaha stuff lol; it's pure coincidence too :P). I also have access to the Fruity Loops, Adobe Audition, and Cakewalk Sonar 4 Producer Edition audio programs.

Casio WK3000, Keystation Pro88, Reason 3.0 (for studio), FL Studio 6 (For Live), 4 gigs of sound effects/recordings (2/3 of which are self-recorded).

I do a lot of industrial stuff (circa KMFDM), and as such need a wealth of odd noises.

Just recently picked up a Line 6 PODxt. It's pretty damn cool.. so easy to record with [usb, and the sound is unbelievable]. Some of the tones are kinda bad, but if you screw with it, you can make some really nice-sounding stuff. Now I just need the model pack upgrades and I'll be set.

Guitar = Aria Mac 50Q
Amp = A crappy Fender Squire practice amp
Software = Reason 3.0 + one or two refills, Modplug Tracker 1.17, Soundforge 7.0, and various self-recorded loops...

Er, thats pretty much all I use for my composing, but i have other software which i'm yet to play with...

FL 6- Producer edition, Orion Platinum, Storm 3.0, Ableton Live, Cubase SX

I really REALLY could do with a decent midi controller/keyboard for Reason, can anyone suggest a decent, yet reasonably cheap one as cash is on the low at the moment (gettin a car  :D)

If you are registered with Myspace, comments/critisism would be greatly appreciated...
