I'm a dude that does the music thing.
Programs- Adobe Audition, FL Studio 6 XXL Producer edition, Finale.
Hardware- Creative Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS PCMCIA (and PCI for my desktop). I should have gotten an external one.
OS- Windows XP home edition (kept updated)
1 gig of RAM, and a Pentium 4 2.66 GHz processor.
AKG Perception 200 Condenser Mic, bagful of adapters (WOO! Betcha need to know that one), Kurzwiel made in the 80s but really good as a controller, A hundered dollar Casio for bedroom Midi controlling, A Stageworks and a Sennheiser live mic, an ART Preamp. I should probably put the specific product names on some of these sometime, and there might be more stuff to list.
