So I am on the market for a must production software. I am looking for a program to be able to make some beats, add in some instruments and in some fancy things here and there and eventually release an EP for fun. I have been looking into programs but I need help on deciding.

 

I will be getting a PC so Logic Pro is out, although I used to work with that so I know the basics of certain things.

 

Now I know price is an issue but lets be honest I am going to get whatever program illegally so price is not an option. Has anybody used any music editing software? I know of the major ones like Ableton and FL studios but I was curious if anybody knew which one was easier/better in music standards.

I have use Cubase, Sonar Professional ( I think you have to be registered with Roland, even if you pirate the software) , I haven't used Pro Tools, but a lot of people around here use and swear by it.

I've used FL Studio in the past, and it's not bad and pretty easy (and fun) to work with. A lot of professionals use this software too. I'd recommend it :p

It depends:

 

For MIDI/VST oriented music: Ableton

 

Regular DAW's: Cubase / ProTools

@HiMyNameIsNick so MIDI/VST is more actually creating a sound in the program (like a dubstep beat) and DAW is like recording an instrument and just having a simple editing software correct?

Well, not simple. Ableton its easier to use and more simple (IMO).

If you're a hobbyist, i would suggest Ableton, otherwise, stick to Cubase or ProTools, those are the nowadays standard software.

Been using fl studio and ableton for a while.

mainly producing things that range from pop to trance : D 

fl studio is my favorite for overall editting for how easy it is to learn it's tricks and the "quality of the software" pretty much depends on the plugins you are able to get.

I have around 50 gbs in plugins and i probably have only used 70% of it so far

Pretty much every plugin is easy to download, from the original source or not

 

But at the end of the day it comes down to what kind of music you're into making, hope it helps.
