Less than one year and it's already shifted to other software :hihi:
Mainly:
- Bitwig and Maschine
- Addictive Drums & Battery 4
- Massive, Razor, Diva and RePro

I still like and use my other DAWs and synths but I prefer using the above and/or find myself using them mainly (It's also related how well their integration with my midi controllers).

These days mostly:

Cherry Audio Voltage Modular - with some bundles of third party modules it's the most flexible plugin that's actually usable to me (I've mostly given up on Reaktor, I'd much rather have more oldschool modular patching with plenty of decent quality modules as in VM and not have to sort through so much that's unusable too me and slight variations on the same stuff)

u-he Hive - I had stopped using but along came the Wt update :D :clap: so fast to make sounds from scratch that tickle my ears using my own Wt files made in Serum, once the Wt files are done I generally find Hive is the more interesting synth to use them in (I suspect scripting isn't for me though I realize there's insanely much flexibility to be had, but I may give it a try or three)

u-he Zebra 2 - crazy flexible and still sounds great with a bit of tweaking - and with Wav2Zebra2 relatively fast to throw in some of my own waveforms made in other synths etc

Vember Audio Surge - seems this old thing is still surprisingly unique in many aspects, and I know it so well by know it's often fast to create something that will fit in where I'm thinking I need this or that type of sound

Some hints of MPowerSynth, mainly for droning texture etc as the lack of freely assignable polyphonic modulation limits a lot of the use. There'd be much fun to be had with percussive and experimental little sounds otherwise. :( Oh well, there'll be MSoundFactory to right most all wrongs of MPOwerSynth eventually. 8)

The last year has seen me using pretty much everything under the sun, but i got an idea last night for a new set of songs and am setting up a template with the following idea.

Ableton Live 10 (using pretty much all the included fx and M4L fx, but only really Sampler, Simpler, Granulator II and Drum Racks for instruments)
Goodhertz Canopener (so i can actually make music without monitors)
ValhallaDSP Ubermod for everything time-based (modulation and delays for track inserts but also as the main reverb and delay on my fx sends...we'll see how this works)
NeuralDSP Fortin Nameless Suite
SampleSumo Saltygrain

Lately i've become really tired of how standardized soft-synths have become, and how all the feature-limited quirky ones are slavish recreations of hardware and all the forward-thinking softies are these behemoths with eight gazillion modulation options. So i'm going to see if i can just use TRK-01 Play's bass module and Zebralette for everything, and a lot of processing. i might introduce Absynth later on down the pike as it seems to really exist in its own little universe (unless you count Alchemy).

Izotope Ozone 7 for mastering, Triumph for final sequencing.

That's it. i've only recently really figured out what kind of music i'm supposed to be making so i'm trying to find out what i actually need.

Bitwig as it’s really the only major DAW available on Linux.

My preference is Studio One, but I am a hobbyist only and it is tedious having to dual boot Windows

Pretty much just instruments and effects in Apple MainStage while I record a live stereo track in the MainStage recorder. I use some long delays for layering so I don't usually like to multitrack even though I also have LogicPro X. Besides the instruments and effects in MainStage, I use Chromaphone 2, Expert Sleepers' delay effects and Pianoteq occasionally.
