In this video, I’ll be looking at how to choose the right DAW for your music-making. Do subscribe for more videos like this and ring the bell to keep up to date with our notifications and deals.

Feelings run extremely high amongst music producers when it comes to their favorite DAWs, and with so many different options out there it can be difficult to choose. There’s Logic, Cubase, Pro Tools, Fl Studio, Ableton Live, Reason, Studio One, Reaper, and many other options. So which one is right for you?

In a nutshell, the DAW that you should choose is the one that lets you get ideas from your head out into the real world in the fastest time. You need the creation process to be as seamless as possible so go with the DAW that feels easy and quick to use FOR YOU – essentially whatever you’re used to using already. It doesn’t matter if it’s not the latest version or if it’s missing features that everyone else seems to love – if it works for you then that’s the most important thing.

Now don’t get me wrong, of course, you need to consider other aspects if you’re collaborating or need specific features and functions. So in your downtime, do shop around and try a few trial versions. But for straight-up creation and a smooth workflow, stick with what you know.

There is no sense asking question “which DAW is best” simply because there is very limited number of persons who uses ALL of them and give you real answer based on experience. People very often use single, selected program for specific task and if you ask them “which email client / filemanager / image viewer / video processing / etc.” program is the best, they’ll answer “the one I’m using is the best”. But it’s a lie in most cases. True answer should be “I don’t know, I’m using only one and I like it, but I have no experience… Read more »

Mixcraft. It is inexpensive and not copmplicated. It has am amazingly fast (shallow) learning curve and it does just about anything any other DAW can do. Also, it is much better at integrating video than most DAWs. I come from a SONAR background, and when Cakewalk folded I tried just about every DAW that would run on a PC. I decided to see how far I could push Mixcraft and I was very satisfied with my results. I purchased Ableton Live Studio, Studio One, Reaper, and Cubase, and, of course, I often use Cakewalk by Bandlab. Cakewalk is an old… Read more »

I’m also a Cakewalk user (old school – pre BandLab). The fact that it’s now free to anyone who wants to compose on a PC should win over a lot of young composers. And since I have years of plug-ins that only came with the original version, I’m holding on. I will take a look at Mixcraft if for nothing else, it’s improved video integration. Thanks! And one thing not mentioned anywhere in the article is that all composers need to have a basic understanding of the dreaded ProTools, only because most studios and production companies use it exclusively.

I believe that Fl Studio is the simplest from my experience but I have mostly used Protools, Reason 11. I have tried Ableton and sonar in the past but didn’t feel them . Fl studio is not a toy it’s a bad ass daw for just about anything you can think of nowadays. Free upgrades forever as well.
