Hello fellow musicians.

I've been wondering this for quite a while and have finally gotten down to asking this question,
Could any of you please recommend me some good program with which i would be able to record my own music?

Reaper. Easy to learn, powerful, lightweight, free-esque.

ive never used Reaper but I would like to familiarize myself with more DAW's, so I'll probably check that one too.

Id say give this guy a listen. he'll give you the basics about choosing one.
Spoiler: show
Youtube: show


also, i know Pro tools is "soon" to be releasing a free version of their DAW with a few limitations. Pro tools is one of the most used DAWs out there, but i also think it's the most criticized by pros. Considering a free version is coming out though, id say get the basics down on that one, and then maybe move on to a full version of something expensive.

hope that helps

There really isn't that much practical difference in most DAWs these days, at least in considering the possible quality of finished products. A lot of it comes down to workflow and GUI, so rather than learning to use one and then moving on you should really just find one you like and get good with it.

Yea I happen to agree with Corpsefister. it's more about what you get the most comfortable with and enjoy using. I've tried a number and I like Reaper the most.

The free Pro Tools one won't be able to save to your harddrive though. Only to the cloud.

I've used Pro Tools, Logic, Ableton Live and Reaper, but I generally stick to Reaper. All DAWs do basically the same but have their own quirks. The reasons I really love Reaper though are:
-No input/output limits, meaning I can easily work with ambisonics with 8+ outputs without any problems which is not the case in most other DAWs
-Takes very little CPU and is incredibly stable
-You can program directly into it
-You can basically customize every single aspect of the DAW which is great for power users

Some of the Reaper features can be pretty obscure for people that are new in production, but for oldguard, it becomes incredibly powerful. If you're just starting out though, I'd honestly say to either go for Logic or Reaper. Ableton Live is good if you're doing a long of live sequencing stuff (I just program it myself in MaxMSP and route it to Reaper instead).

I use Reaper as well for 3/4 years now, fast and really easy to use.
