What software (DAW) do you use?

Digital Performer is *dear* to my heart, but Logic has really crept in lately. I like garageband too -- don't laugh. Sometimes you need to just make music. Since ~2008, most of my serious work that involves composing is done in Logic; otherwise I'm often handed projects in Pro Tools to mix. And PT is fantastic for that: dead simple editing, mixing, automating... it's almost like working on analogue (with an SSL and an intern or 3 ;) I'm not sure whether it's good or bad that it feels the same as it did 10 years ago -- although I haven't tried the brand new revolutionary version yet.

Who are your influences (e.g. bands, producers, etc.)

oh god... only 970 chars left!?

Is there anything in particular you'd like to learn more about?

Mastering. I just worked a long mastering session with a great pro in a great studio, but my expertise is in recording and mixing. Mastering is another art entirely. I learned a lot -- enough to share -- but it's something I'd love to explore with the group. I have a Logic project with mastered and unmastered tracks, sample-locked and level-matched, so it's a great way to hear what a real pro does with a 10-track album mixed by 3 different people. Let's share.

Introduction

I do software for the day job but music for reality. Used to be a pro guitarist, quit that and wrote software for my improvising anti-rhythmic laptop duo, and have been recording and mixing all along. Hate to admit I'm more techie than performer.
