    Ive heard of many softwares ranging from Pro Tools to sibelius, Mixcraft and even audacity. I just want an expert opinion of what to start off with. Im serious about doing and I have the money to spend on a premium program.

    If you have the money, not point in not starting on Pro Tools.

    similarly look at Cubase, Ableton, Reason - the only reason to go Pro tools is that they have an almost automatic association with pro-audio not because they are tehe best but because they got there first....

    I would recommend looking into Ableton, Ableton 9 is out and it is easy to use (waiting for mine with push). I learned on FL studio, to logic, now to Ableton. Once you get the program you will thank me for suggesting that DAW. FL is the quickest way of making loops, but to make a track i like ableton.

    Cheers,

    I'm not expert but I have a little knowledge about your Q. If you have more money for premium tool and you're serious about this industry I think that FL studio is perfect and flexible for various midi controller.

    Really all depends on your knowledge and experience.
    Simple and easy,Fruity Loops.
    Something a little more complicated but solid,Presonus studio 1.

    There are alot of other options but S1 has become my favorite.Very powerful and user friendly.

    Peace

    I have used FL studio, Cubase, Pro Tools, Logic and Reason.I currently use Maschine with Logic and it's perfect. It's all a matter of preference. I'd seriously recommend demoing each DAW that you are interested in and purchase after you have found the one most comfortable, keeping in mind what you will be using your set up for. I absolutely loved Reason until I discovered Maschine, which made Reason obsolete because you really cant use them in tandem with one another. BUT if I had not practiced so much with Reason's unique set up I may not have been as comfortable with other DAW's. The GUI in Reason gives a visual representation of pretty much everything.

    Definitely..........Cubase's the way to go, period!

    You can take your project's to Pro studio as with Pro Tools......but Pro Tools isn't as complete and will cost you more, in the end!

    1st daw

    There is no one answer .Logic is awesome but you need a Mac. If audio is all you need go with PT.
    If you are looking for creativity tools go with Logic,FL,Reason,Cubase or DP.
    PT was created for audio not midi and sequencing. Many pros have used PT along with other software.
    If you have budget issues almost all DAW products come in entry level packages.
    There are also free trial downloads too.
