... or both equally? Just curious what do you prefer and why. I'm waiting for an input from both professional producers and hobbyists
Do you have a favourite cataloguing software? Do you even use one? Or do you think your discogs account is enough? Personally, for more than a decade I use OrangeCD. Cheap to buy, you keep it forever, constantly updated and has everything you need (and more). So, what program do you use? (if any)
Alright audiophiles, I think its about time we put together a collection of software for musical production! Have you ever wanted to express every vision, passion, and experience into pure, untainted sound? Do you crave knowledge and wisdom through the universe of electronic production? Does listening to other peoples music make you wonder, "How did they do that?" If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you want to start crafting your brilliance into wave form! There are many of us who yearn to learn, but we do not know where to start. What software do we use? How do we use it? What the hell is an Oscillator? Why do I need a synthesizer? What synthesizers do people use? These questions and more pop up everyday, sending people on journeys through Google to find answers. My journey began ten years ago in the middle of nowhere Arkansas with a small, easy-to-use program named Garageband. I wanted to make Ambient music, and so I stretched every corner of the virtual globe to explore, discover, and understand electronic audio composition. My goal is to help everyones musical goals a little bit easier to reach. With this reference, hopefully you can. Below, you will find a large series of top notch, high quality, extensive programs, add-ons, effect processors, tweakers, and other sorts of musical programming pornography to release the stitches holding together your mind, aiming to bring the color of your world into a beautiful soundscape that will impress any fellow electronic enthusiast or dance-floor-acceptable raver. Show us what you've got! Grab some of the fresh programs below, mess around with them, and put together your virtual audio rack to start creating music! Hey now, don't stop there. Post your discoveries below, tell us about your favorites, and help expand this thread to communities everywhere. Otherwise, everything I have typed here is pointless! You don't want a basket full of kittens to die do you? Well, me either, unless it produced some sort of incredible sound effect that can not be replicated... hmm... Kittenslaughterstep... So, without further ado, I now present to you a list of Digital Audio Workstations, Virtual Synthesizers, Mastering Tools, Mixing Programs, Effects Processors, and other VSTs / AUs for Mac, PC, or both. Some of these work on Linux as well. Enjoy! Digital Audio Workstations - Synthesizers and Instruments - Effects - Mastering and EQuing
