Top 10 Music Production Software That Made My List
I’ve compiled a list of top 10 music production software. I’ve used them all, and i find it more useful then other software out there. Just remember that the software that i use, is not the most suitable for you. Other people may have different list, different styles but no matter what, it’s always better to review it your self.
1. Steinberg’s Nuendo 4
The easiest sequencer for me to work with. The good thing about Nuendo is, because it is based on ASIO, it will work with mostly anything.
2. Propellerhead’s Reason 4
Fascinating synths (especially Thor) Great “configure your self” input output, Great library support from third parties manufacturers. And the best of Reason is this, the combinator. The good thing about it? your freedom to craft your sound.
3. Ableton’s Live 7
Great tempo manipulating sequencer, u can easily drag a sample put it inside a track, and the sample tempo will matched the project’s tempo. The good thing about Live 7? The great layout. It helps you a lot, especially when you wanted to search for files without clicking or opening the Menu.
4. Digidesign’s Pro Tools
Beat Detective, McDSP plugins, those are a few rare items that you can find on Pro Tools. The best of Pro Tools? The great combination from software, hardware, third party manufacturers, and of course the ease of transport and compatibilities with class A Studios.
5. Apple’s Garage Band
An easy to see and use sequencer, especially useful when you need to create a quick map for your project. The best from Garage Band is the Jam Pack’s great samples. Do you know that one of the Jam Pack’s sample ended up in Rihanna’s Number One Hit?
6. Spectrasonics Stylus RMX
With constant updated libraries and a passion for beat, you can use Stylus RMX to help you find the beat your looking for. The best of Stylus RMX? almost anything that you can think of when it comes to beats.
7. FXpansion’s BFD
A live drum on a box. Mic placing options, customized drum sets, great samples, it’s like you have everything a drummer needs in a software.
8. Native Instrument’s Guitar Rig 3 and IK multimedia’s Amplitube 2
I can’t separate the two of them! Both of them provide almost the same features. Amp simulations, Mic Simulations, you name it. The best of them? Great Sounds!
9. IK multimedia’s Ampeg SVX
The best? It turns any lame bass instrument into a great fat pounding bass sound you’ll ever get from a software, period.
10. Guitar Hero
Well.. it’s not really a production software.. but it can inspire you a lot.
There it is, the top 10 music production softwares that made my list! Now all i have to do, is to get me a list of top 10 music production hardwares. I’ll let you know when i’m done with it.
