Hi, I've tried a few different software packages for music production but a bit confused about ones i should go for when starting out!!? Cubase? Ableton? Logic etc? Do they all pretty much offer the same solution?
 
Any advice would be greatly received.
 
Cheers....

Hey!

Well of course I'm going to say Live as that's what we teach on this site! However, it's also the main DAW I use, and I'm familiar with them all. It's the best in terms of helping your creativity and workflow, as well as usability and capacity for original ideas. The others have their benefits too - Logic is another really popular one - but Live is still my personal favourite.

Hope to see you on the course.....

Rob

I have used Logic, Protools, and on PC used Audition and by far my favorite is Ableton, the versatility that is has to be very creative, sample easily and overall user friendly, I vote Ableton

Hey Sparkiedog, I have become familiar with Logic and am most comfortable with it now, but Ableton looks really good, which is why I am taking this course. Also it doesn't have to be an either/or because you can rewire Ableton with most other popular DAWs.

I've spent a fair bit of time on Logic and now Ableton, and I'd pick Ableton over Logic any day.  I feel like its much easier to be creative when you're doing production work, easier to learn, and when it comes to playing live shows, the two don't even compare.

I use Reason primarily, and I just started getting into Ableton. They both have their ups and downs for me. I would just suggest to download some demo version and have a play with them, and see which one seems easier for you to use. after thats what really matters, is how comfortable you are using a DAW.
good luck!
