I use my sparetime trying to be creative. Writing, arranging, mixing and remixing music is just a hobby, wich seems to take up more and more of my time...
Acid Pro, SoundForge and various VST's
Just about anything. During any given week, I listen to classical, RnB, heavy rock, dance, pop, etc. There are a few exceptions, but I think most genres and styles of music have something to offer.
Whatever I feel like at the moment. I listen to, and try to make, various styles.
