Simple PC-Based DAW


I currently record to a Roland VS-2000 and was thinking of ditching it in favor of a PC-based DAW. I just need the ability to track at 24/96, mix, sum, and a little EQ. I make simple recordings. Not too many tracks, not too much DSP.

What DAW do your recommend?

It kind depends on what you need. I've tried several different DAWs. I started with Logic, went to Sonar, tried Samplitude, went back to Sonar, and now I'm on Cubase and I plan to stick with it. It's great fit for me because I do lots of midi. I'm really digging Cubase.

If I was starting out right now, I'd take a very close look at Reaper. It keeps getting better and better, and it's already quite good. You can download and use it for free. Only $40 if you decide to keep it.

If you're like me, it takes some time and experimenting to figure out just what I need. Using something like Reaper will give some time to work with a DAW and figure out what you need without spending a fortune. You might find it's all you ever need.

Tracktion is powerful and easy to use. And cheap. Highly recommended.
