I've been playing piano since I was five and also play guitar, dulcimer and autoharp. My music is a hybrid of electronica and actual instrumentation. I do use some loops, but I create a lot of them and play along with the composition via Yamaha EX-7 and a Yamaha CVP-501 Clav. Old stuff, but it still works. ;-) I use Acid Pro 7.0 and Soundforge for all of my recording.
