Getting A DAW
« on: August 13, 2015, 07:44:51 pm »
So as you may know I like making music. But I feel like the software (garageband) isnt taking me far enough for the kind of music I want to start making (electro/edm kind of stuff). I need a DAW that is good amd works well and can produce music at a high quality. I was thinking Logic X Pro because of my mac, but Is it any good? 0w0

DAWs are sort of just something you have to research about. Every DAW has its ups and downs. Just read about some and figure out what's best for you ^w^ Here's some of the more popular DAWs:

FL Studio 11/12 (What I use)
Ableton Live
Logic Pro X

Send me a message and I can for sure help ya' out with this!

Here is a pretty good list that you might want to check out! FL Studio tends to be the most mentioned (and probably most popular) DAW among aspiring producers (I use it as well), but I'm not sure if it'll run any differently on a mac or not. Either way, you could certainly benefit from doing a bit of research on what's out there like Twizzy said  :fox-:):

I use FL Studio. It's pretty easy to use once you get the hang of it.
I've left (again), probably for good but idk. If you wanna talk to me outside the forum, feel free to email me. Just tell me who you are in the email pls

Cubase is my personal favorite. It's very well-featured.

(But it's very expensive, hence why only my dad has it)

I have personally been using FL Studio for the past 3 years and it has very good workflow imo. But there are also other DAWs such as Reason, Logic, Bitwig, Renoise, Ableton, etc.

Anvil Studio is free, and it's really user friendly.
