    Which DAW should I buy?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hi there.

    First something about my current situation. I`m making (producing) music since about a year with Ableton Live 9 (the cheapest edition). Iv got an Ableton Push and a Novation Bassstation 2 Synthesizer. All was fine until I bought the Basstation, because you cant use it with the cheapest Ableton Edition because you dont have the "external instrument".

    I want to produce Trance, especially progressive and psytrance. I need a simple DAW which dont have to have the most functions.

    I thought about buying the Ableton Suite version, but im not sure because i think its not that easy to use and record midi and sound from external instruments and Logic for example looks much easier.

    Which DAW would you recommend for my situation and why?

    Thanks a lot.

    I think for producing, FL Studio is perfect. You can make beat patterns very easily and arrange the song in the playlist easily too. All DAWs have a basic foundation under them, but their user interfaces look different. I've started with FL mnay years ago and still use it to this day ....and I know that many successful artists use it too. Some people will shame it because it doesn't "look" good, but when hit tunes are being produced on it, who cares. ...so I say FL studio, ...but its up to you.

    I recommend:
    Reason
    Reaper
    Cubase
    Studio One
    Ableton
    Lmms to try out.

    Others will suggest other daws.

    Any popular modern DAW will do the job. Most of them can be quite easy to use, or very sophisticated if you dig deeper. I guess it comes down to which workflow suits you the best. I personally prefer something like Stuio One or Cubase and hate Ableton and Bitwig. I'd just recommend you to demo different DAWs. At the end of the day each person's preferences differ.

    Fl studio for sure. Maybe Sonar could be a very good solution (it has a lot of versions. paid per month etc) Also you could find a lot of free virtual instruments to make the job perfectly....
