100% software at present
i like the flexibility of software, I dont see any real benefit to having hardware other than having tangible objects to interact with, which can be inspiring
when i did have more hardware i always found that it did not mix well with softsynths. this is probably attributable to my lack of mixing skills at the time
>What is the balance of hardware/software like in your music?
100% software and likely to stay this way, unless instruments count as hardware.
>Do you prefer one method over the other?
Yes, I strongly prefer software. I'm lost without Ableton.
>How well do the two worlds integrate for you?
I haven't even touched the hardware side, haha
I totally prefer hardware. My favorite way of recording is just with my mic instruments and audacity. But maybe hardware/software is a moot point when you simply prefer using physical instruments (I mean, is that really /hardware/?)
It really depends on what you're working on though. I also like making mashups, mixes and remixes with dj software, and that's 100 percent on my computer
I prefer having more hardware. I like to collect keyboards and speakers. Currently i have 7 sets of speakers, and 3 keyboards in my room. The reason i dont have a lot of software is because im terrible at mixing, so I like to spend more time playing than recording.
I dont really integrate the two worlds that much, only one of my keyboards can even be hooked up to my computer.
