I'm actually making a beat right now! I use Reason 5 as my DAW, and I use an MPK25 as my midi-controller. I use some samples, but I have my own style. I make beats that sound like they could be sampled. To cut and chop my samples, I use Recycle 2.1. I also have logic, but I think Reason 5 is more advanced. Logic does have better sounding synths though. So I do sometimes export beats from Reason, and import them into Logic and lay over them with synths and things.
When I sample, I use a lot of Curtis Mayfield, and Isaac Hayes.
Recently I made a Halloween beat in the spirit of Halloween. I'll try and find some way to post that here soon!
