That is one  8) controller.....I can see quite a few folks getting into logic just to have Alchemy and Nektar.  Im Still happy in Logic Pro 9 but the day will come.

I'm still running Logic 9 myself, and it works with it too. I haven't had a lot of time to dive into it yet as I am still dialing in the studio after the move to another room, most of my time is taken up with other parts of my house at the moment.
Take care.

Reaper has great modulation options, you can choose a multitude of LFOs or use other audio to modulate effect parameters - great for adding to EQ to add sweeps and bring things to life - I don't know if other DAWs have this feature, but I think Bigwig also has it.

I'd also put up Audiomulch as a serious contender for ambient work, it's (mostly) a non-timeline based workflow and so is much more geared towards live jamming and experimentation. I generate nearly all of my audio via Audiomulch and then fine tune and structure it in Reaper. And whilst you can just start recording the output in Reaper, I find I hardly ever do it as the focus is so much more about a timeline - where as in AM, I'll just hit record and noodle away for ages..
