Im just kind of curios what people use live.I use a laptop and an edirol sound module
Desktop PC, Cubase SX nd VSti's. Plus my Marshall AVT150H, 1960B Cab and my Jackson Guitars. R1, DXMG, DK2, KE3 and Charvel 650 XL.
Minidisc player, all midis mastered through sonar and Hypercanvas thru an Extigy.
The minidisc goes through a soundcraft desk with a Behringer Ultrafex (amazing on the midis) Australian Monitor Amp and Yamaha speakers.
I use Minidisc too, everything is recorded using roland jv1010,cubase and reason. It saves the danger of breaking the laptop when in a pub and getting pissed while playing.

My band, a three piece,use my acer laptop which has a midi portman attached which is then attached to a roland sc 155 sound module.I run all the files thru Cakewalk 9,where u can set up set lists as well as edit all the files
I have an rack mount with 10 channel mixer,2 Pevey CS 800 power amps,one for the bass bin and one for the main front speakers all Pevey Equiptment. For a program at home I use Cakewalk 9 ,with Cakewalk I can edit the songs so the bass track can pan to L or R in the direction of the Bass Bin. Also Cakewalk is a great program to do anything you want to do with a midifile. I Use a Roland SD 35 on stage ,with a Vocalist Tapped in.I've been doing this for 13 Years.The Roland takes Floppy Disc,you can get about 12 to 15 songs on a disc. I bought the Roland off e-bay about 11 Years ago. I started playing out with midifiles burned on CD's buy a good friend of mine that got me started doing this. I was very determined to perform.
I got a yamaha qy300 that I write on and perform with, slaved off of that are:
Roland juno 106
Roland r-8m for drum sounds.
I rarely use any of the internal sounds on the qy because they're pretty bad except for the strings.
