Twitter user @BoDangles11 asks Rusko, "#AskRusko what DAW do you use and what is your top soft synth of choice?" Rusko answers that he uses Sony Acid Pro 7 as his DAW: "@BoDangles11 I still use Sony Acid 7 always have!!! My most used soft synth is [Albino 3](http://equipboard.com/items/rob-papen-albino-3-software-synthesizer) - most used real synth [Roland SH101](http://equipboard.com/items/roland-sh-101-synthesizer) #geekout" (23 Aug 2013)more
Sony Acid Pro 7 is a nice little audio workstation. It handles all the basic tasks pretty well. it's quick and sufficient. I like to use it mostly for creating podcast's/mix's. Although you can connect and use your MIDI controller with it, I wouldn't recommend doing that since the software is a bit outdated and is very buggy. It does have some nice sounds in it and you can use it together with Ableton Live 9.
