    At the moment, Windows PCs with Sonar for sequencing and Sibelius for music notation.

    I voted Mac as they were bought for Music Tech, but technically they have access to both.

    Despite comments in your other thread...

    We currently use PC's with Sibelius and CuBase. Head of Music has expressed an interest in Mac's though. We are also getting a new Head of Media Studies in September who will be very film orientated (apparantly). So I can see discussions around a share suite of Macs.

    Again, linking to my recent blog on this:

    Building a Recording and Sequencing lab on a budget (And why you shouldn’t buy Apple) - Blogs - EduGeek.net

    Also worth noting that Ableton Live (which i consider the best new production and sequenceing software) works equally well on either format.

    Sibelius and Cubase on Windows, mostly.

    Sibelius is licensed for OS X as well, but media aren't interested in losing computer time to music (who've got their own IT base and scheduled time in the other IT bases).

    Windows all the way here.

    Sibelius on the network machines & Ive patched up some old redundant ex network kit as standalone none network machines that have open office & dance ejay - the head of the department having picked up a big pile of dance ejay discs for peanuts a few years ago.

    No network & no internet = the kids dont get sidetracked off task

    Oh and utilising redundant RM 2020's stripped out of other rooms during our last refit meant they got a uniform set of equipment for the cost of a few hours of my time, instead of the assorted hotch potch of elderly none standard base units they had to put up with before.

    The 2020s aint great but they do what the deaprtment wants from them with very few problems. I only see the base units again on the rare occasions they suffer a hardware failure - mainly power supplies, occasionally the cd drives pack up. ANd there are plenty of spares of both in my store room.

    Windows 7 PCs with Cubase (LE4) and Sibelius 5. Work fine. Tascam external USB sound devices which aren't great- only reason we stick with them is the interfaces they provide for midi/mic etc
