"I started doing music when I was about 11 yrs. old. I began with DOS trackers like 'Tracker', then switched to 'Fast Tracker II'. I was convinced this wasthe way to create music.
After gaining some experience in tracking, I made a transfer to Reason (my first midi based sequencer). After exploring that for some time, I finally made the choice to switch to Cubase and invest into somewhat more 'serious' hardware and bought my first synth (Roland Fantom XR).
This piece of hardware took away a lot of stress from my machine and made making music a lot easier, while it would still sound nice.
Currently I still use the Fantom ( X8 ) as my main piece of hardware for making music, in combination with Cubase SX3 I still find myself enjoying the workflow and probably will continue like this for quite a while also.
I've always had a great love for music in video games, one of the reasons why I still do video game remixes every now and then. I don't really have a specific genre I always work in, but if I had to nail it down, I'd say my most done genre is probably R&B music."
