A Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) includes but isn’t limited to, the computer on which you make your recordings, the software to make those recordings and the attendant outboard gear that you use to capture those recordings. Also included are the software and hardware effects, instruments, amplifiers, microphones, etc. Also included are the other tools you use to edit the recording as well.
My current system is quite different form what I started with. It includes a MacBook Pro 15, 2.8 GHz Intel core i7 with turbo boost to 4.0GHz, a back up Mac Book Pro 2.2GHz Intel Core i7 with turbo boost to 3.4GHz. Various external Drives for Project management and storage and samples.
My audio interface is a Focusrite Clarett 8PreX and two Clarett OctoPres, a Line 6 KB37 as a keyboard controller only, a Behringer UMX610 Keyboard Controller, a Bias Bass Mini Amp, Edirol MA-7A monitors and KRK VXT8 Monitors. I also utilize a dox 266XL external compressor/limiter/gate.
I utilize Apple Logic Pro X, Propellerheads Reason 10 and Pro Tools 2018 for my DAWs. Apple Final Cut Pro X as my NLE and Motion 5 for graphics automation. I also utilize Apple Logic Remote and Pro Tools PT Control on iPad Pro.
My plugins include, iZotope Neutron 2 Advanced, iZotope Ozone 8 Advanced, iZotope RX6 Standard, iZotope Insight, Toontrack Superior Drummer 3, Focusrite Red 2&3, plane Veilklang 2, Positive Grid Bias Amp 2, Positive Grid Bias FX, Positive Grid Bias Pedal, Ceremony Melodyne Studio 4 and Native Instruments Classic Compressors suite.
So that kind of sums it up!
