Open Mic: Tell Us About Your DAW of Choice

by

Digital audio workstation software is the central hub of music production. Which program do you use?

Each Tuesday we open our mic to readers and lurkers alike to come out of the woodwork and tell us your thoughts and opinion, your experiences and mistakes, what you love and what you hate. We want to hear from you, and here’s your chance.

What DAW software do you use? Why do you choose your DAW? Are you happy with the choice?

Do you use just one DAW or several? Why? What are the strengths of each program?

Would you like to see more tutorials on a particular DAW?
