I am indeed! Also moving chromatically up at 0:52 ish.
I am happy to talk shop! I use Reaper and love it dearly, mostly because it's just what I know best at this point. I've been using it for about 4 years, and because I'm a stingy bastard I still use almost exclusively built-in plugins for EQ, Delay, Compression, etc.
I messed around with Ableton for a little bit - I found it to be a great place to work on ideas and get creative, but I was just so used to Reaper that it never really stuck with me. If you're looking to make some sort of electronic music, Ableton is definitely a good pick.
Also, if you are interested in making electronic music and happen to have $250 to spend on something musical, I highly recommend the Arturia Microbrute, especially this particular package. This is what I use for basically all my synth stuff, and it's awesome. The Microbrute itself is an awesome way to learn the basics of synthesis in a hands-on way (plus it sounds great!), and it also works as a velocity-sensitive MIDI controller. The real beauty of this package is the synth library they include with it - there are something like 6000 presets, including some really lovely electric piano/organ stuff.
All that being said, I recall that there are some nice synths built into Ableton, so the above recommendation may be irrelevant.
What sort of music do you like? Do you have anything you've been working on that I could listen to (maybe PM me?) Always happen to meet another musician on here!
In closing, here are two somewhat goofy but very useful videos you may find interesting:
