MG2 is about all I use. I've tried other programs, and quite frankly, don't really like them. 8 years of using it, and I am still finding ways to make new sounds.
Honestly, I am finding the best music we did was from 2002-2005. I cannot write like I used to; my wife does most of the writing now. I used to be able to write poppier stuff, now everything is more beat oriented.
