Thought I would jump in and share my setup. I actually have two spaces:
- At the piano- using Dorico on my iPad Pro 10.5” for writing and sketching. I have a Bluetooth midi adapter for the piano that allows me to input notes into Dorico. Also the BT QWERTY keyboard.
Apps used here include Dorico, Forescore, GarageBand, Korg, Klevegrand and a few others.
- When the piece is pretty well fleshed out and I have a nearly finished the arrangement, I head upstairs to the studio to orchestrate and finish programming the necessary samples and sounds.
Apps used: Reaper, Dorico, Logic Pro, hundreds of sample libraries.
Often times I start and end in the studio, depending on deadlines. But I feel I write a better piece of music when I separate out the writing from the orchestrating. Kind of my version of an analog and digital workspace.
Hoping to replace my aging 2012 MP with a new MBP in 2022.
Love seeing others spaces.
