DAW Guide 2017



If you want to do a quick and complete music project, then I will tell you nothing beats Reaper, at the time of writing Reaper is at version 5.40, nothing beats the speed, resource management, workflow of Reaper DAW, and the whole package is just under 10 MB, that's the beauty of coding, Reaper comes as a 60 day trial version, which can be used even after the tiral period ends. one can buy Reaper DAW for just $60 (discounted fee)  and it iincludes free upgrades through REAPER version 6.99. if your annual gross revenue exceeds USD 20,000, then you should purchase full commercial licence at $225

Bitwig Studio

Though a spin off of Ableton live, I like bitwig because of it's layout, it has got bigger windows for MIDI editing and other stuffs which ableton is missing, at the time of writing bitwig is version 2.1, priced at $399 it's costly and the licence offers free 1 year upgrades (ableton (9.7.2) is $99 for Inro version, $449 for Standard version, and $749 for Suite version)


F L Studio 12

Different workflow, the easisest DAW in the world for Electronic music produciton, fruity edition costs $99.00, producer edition costs $199.00, signature bundle costs $299.00 Fl Studio all plugins costs $899.00, on the plus side Fl Studio offers free lifetime updates



The best news of 2017 is that Reason is going to roll out version 9.5 with VST support, and that's a big step forward,  given the unique workflow and with the support of VST, this is going to be a beast in electronic music production, Reason costs $399 not sure whether the Reason essenial ($69) will get the VST support, will update on this later

Protools First

For electronic music produciton, protools sucks! :)
