Up until now I’ve been using MuseScore and a free version of FL Studio to study composition theory. I’m now looking for a “complete” DAW that I can use to start more in depth things.
As you can tell from this post I’m really poor and I can’t efford “pro” paid DAWs at the moment so… I have to pick a free one for the time beeing… and then perhaps pick a better one as I manage to save more money
I’ve done some research and, at this point in time, the best free ones should be one between:
From what I’ve seen so Far:
CakeWalk seems to be the most complete option. It really interest me the fact that it comes with a music notation option similar to MuseScore. Also the automations seems nice.
LMMS seems to be the more “similar” to FL Studio, but it puzzles me the fact that it seems to only have blacn and green colors… it might make tracks recognition a little harder?
SoundBridge seemed to be the “simpler” one to jump into.
Waveform was interesting because of it’s “music wave presets”… but there is the chance something like that would actially “slow down” my learning of composition?
Any ideas on which one would be better in your opinion?
