Mostly a guitarist, just launching into the whole "computer as studio" thing after successfully completing a rather involved arrangement for a Church program last Christmas. It was a bit of a steep learning curve, but it beat using a razor blade, scotch tape, and five billion photocopies of the sheet music!
Purpose: composing, arranging, learning, exasperating the wife
hw: homebrew Phenom II X6, 12GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 1TB spinnydisk, MAudio sound card, Novation Launchkey 25, Akai LPD8
(I have a Macbook with a busted screen waiting in the wings for a screen repair and a RAM upgrade, if I ever get around to it)
(I don't have the space to set it up at present, but there's also my daughter's Casio Privia PX-310 up on edge in a closet)
Half a dozen guitars, and a MicroCube amp
audio: Cheap little Lepai amp, NHT SuperZero speakers at ear level
sw: Ubuntu Studio 18.04, Jack, Hydrogen, Rosegarden, Audacity, Qsynth, Padthv1, Amsynth, Synthv1, Bristol, VCV Rack (that last is an obsession all by itself!)
hw: Acer Chromebook C720 snagged at a hamfest for $25, 2GB RAM, 128MB SSD
audio: whatever is handy where I am, usually either Sony MDR V150 'phones or the church's PA
sw: Same as above
