There is no "best" music software, so ...

... think best music software for me!

Right! You want the best music software you can afford. That's understandable. So, which one of the myriad of DAWs available is it?

So, you simply want to know which is the top music software to make your own music with, and when you ask,  the countless opinions of other producers vary so much you end up feeling as confused as a chameleon on a heap of M&M's.

Why don't they just let you in on the best program to use already?!

A few reasons...

1)  The leading Audio/MIDI sequencer packages can pretty much do the job with only minor differences in interface and functionality.

2)  The music recording software and sequencer you choose will come down your taste and style, which is subjective to your personality.

3)  Other people don't know exactly what you want to create as a musician or music producer and therefore can only give you general advice and in most cases will simply suggest the software they use.

4)  There are so many music software packages available which range from toys to pro level, which means nobody can say for sure which is the best music software.

You're going to have to get your hands dirty and do your research because Audio/MIDI software is a vital choice when you decide to produce music on your computer.

So, here are a triple dose of Renegade tips to get you going...

1) Head for music producers forums. Ask for tips, read previous posts, look for polls and any information that can help you make a choice of music production software.

2) Visit your local music equipment retailer for demonstrations of the leading music software packages.

3) Download available music production program demos from the manufacturer's web sites and buy when you feel comfortable that you will like the program in the long run.

I said it before and I'll say it again...

...there is no ultimate music software.  You'll find a few very good and many more reasonable to just plain wacky programs available.

The music production software you choose will come down to who you are, how you like to work and what you want to create with your music.

Most professional DAWs can do what you need to do to create music so the difference is miniscule.  Try out a few and go with what works for you. To get started is more important than to delay because of not being sure if the software you chose is the best choice.
