I started recording songs on my Mac in 1990 using Deluxe Music Construction Set, a MIDI composition tool for the Mac Plus. I have owned a great deal of software for my home studio since then, as I have switched from a 68k Mac to a PowerPC (Vision) then to a Windows PC briefly (Cubase) and then back to an Intel-based Mac (Pro Tools + Logic). The software that is currently installed on my Mac Pro DAW is listed below.
