Here is a list of some of the best recording studio software used in studios all around the world. I have listed the best five below.
One of the best places I’ve found to get recording software is zZounds. They’ve got some of the best prices on the internet and are well established and reliable musician stores.
Top Five Sequencers
The best recording software on the market today are:
– Cakewalk Sonar
– Steinberg Cubase
– Apple Logic
– MOTU Digital Performer
– Avid Pro Tools
#1. Cakewalk Sonar
This is the latest Cakewalk Sonar version, and is a significant upgrade from previous versions. It demonstrates great superiority and consists of many powerful features. It is widely accepted as the best on the market, the ultimate in studio software. If you want a powerful home recording studio, you should definitely consider getting Cakewalk Sonar.
#2. Steinberg Cubase
My second choice would be Steinberg Cubase. It is undoubtedly the best and most powerful music recording software which Cubase has ever created. No matter what type of audio production you’re working on, this program has the power to control and to provide results. When it comes to a high level of sound quality, Cubase SX stands out. Essentially, it’s one of the friendliest sequencers one can find and will allow you to work efficiently.
#3. Apple Logic Pro
This is definitely one of the best on the market when it comes to sequencers. It’s also the best Logic to date. (Please not that it’s only for Mac users and that Emagic doesn’t develop Logic on the PC platform anymore.) Despite the fact that I prefer Cakewalk and Cubase, I cannot deny the technical excellence which Emagic Logic Platinum provides, as well as its outstanding quality.
#5. Avid Pro Tools
Cheaper and earlier versions.
Although the above types of software are the best on the market, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t consider buying more straightforward, cheaper and earlier versions. Perhaps the earlier versions can provide you with all the features that you need.
If all you need is recording studio software which will help you put down songwriting ideas, then you don’t need to spend too much. You can download free software like Audacity and Krystal.
