First off, thank you so much for the nice comment. We're two weeks away from the Journey release, so please email / facebook / twitter and let me know what you think after you've had a chance to explore!

Re: your question, I am most definitely a pencil and paper guy, at the onset. I like the feeling of paper when coming up with the initial ideas. On my facebook page I posted my original sketchbook that had the Journey theme in it (link below). However, once the original ideas are worked out, I quickly shift into working 100% in my software.

For sequencing, I use Digital Performer and all the various ancillary sample libraries, etc. For notation I use Finale. Pretty simple!
