So I haven't made IDM for maybe like 6/7 years now. I got involved in bands and started producing Indie records and things like that. Taking the time out i've ended up working on records recently for Rudimental and Clean Bandit amongst others and so it's made me want to get back into producing alongside what i'm doing now.
So I used to use FL studio on a crap PC tower, now I mostly produce on Protools on a mac. So i'm interested as to the setups most people are using to produce nowerdays. Not sure if anyone I used to know still does it. I'll probably go under a new name for it and stuff. But yeah, fire away your ideas of what might be good for me to check out. I know FL studio has been talking about a mac beta for a long time but does anyone know if it's any good? I used to love the workflow.
To someone with experience but getting back into electronic music I'd recommend Ableton Live and Push 2. If you're looking to go hardware I'd look at Elektron. Find a box of theirs that tickles your fancy and order it. Resale value it's nearly a no lose situation. Plugins you could look at Serum and Diva but anything bundled with your DAW will be good enough to get you going.
