       Classical music is incredibly powerful. Even to teenagers, listening to a symphony is about as exciting as
      reading the Constitution. Classical music has a certain mathematical precision not found in other genres of

                                The Top Seven Programs For Recording & Mixing Music
                                                               By Johnny Moon

    Do you want to create your own computer based home music recording studio? If so then you'll
need a quality program for recording and mixing music. You will be using one of the following seven
programs a lot so you will definitely want to make a wise decision and choose the software that best
fits your computer, your audio interface, and your needs.

 First of all I want to focus on those with Mac computers (and yes whether you have a Mac or a PC will
play a huge part in your decision of which music recording software to buy.)

 If you own a Mac and do not yet have an audio interface then a Digidesign Pro Tools set up is
probably what you'll opt for. You can get an audio interface of varying sizes (from as few as 2 inputs to
many more) and prices. If you plan on just recording yourself then you'll probably want to get a one of
the fewer input systems (an MBox.) If you plan on recording a full band then of course you'll want to
get a high input (and higher price) option.

 For the full-on "professional" version of ProTools you'll spend about $15,000. If that's in your price
range and a truly professional studio is what you are interested in building, then this may be the right
choice for you but it's really not necessary for most. You can get a great sound without that big setup.

 If you own an MOTU audio interface already then you may want to get MOTU's Digital Performer
which is Mac only software and of course works very well with their audio interfaces. You'll likely have
a very stable system if you choose this option.

 If you do not yet own an audio interface you may wish to consider buying an MOTU audio interface
and Digital Performer (they do not come together like with Pro Tools, you'll have to buy Digital
Performer separately.) This is alternative to buying the limited version of Pro Tools that comes with
their cheaper audio interfaces.

 Another option for Mac users is Apple's Logic. It's designed to work with Mac computers and is a very
strong program for working with audio as well as for working with MIDI. You will need to either already
have an audio interface or buy one to work with it.

How about for PC users? Well first of all, Digital Performer and Logic are off the table as they are Mac

only programs. But what about Pro Tools? It does work with PCs but it does not yet work with Windows
Vista. Also it generally works better with Macs. If you're on a PC I'd recommend going in a different

 Just as with the Mac there are a couple of music production programs that are PC only. These include
Cakewalk's SONAR which is a great choice if you are into working with MIDI (it also does great with
audio as well) and Sony's Acid. Acid is for creating loop based music such as Rap/Hip-Hop and
techno. It's not really suited to other styles of music so you should only consider it if you are into
creating loop based music.

 There are also programs which work great on PC & Mac: Steinberg's Nuendo and Cubase. Nuendo is
Steinberg's high end system and it currently costs $1800 in stores. It's great for those who want to
work with surround sound and those who work on music with video (it has a video component.) It's a
very high quality piece of software but you should make note that it isn't particularly suited for working
with MIDI, if you are big MIDI lover then you should probably get Cubase instead. Cubase is actually
about three times less expensive than Nuendo, so that's good news for you!

 I believe each of these seven programs are available for free in demo form so that you can try them
out without buying them. This is probably a good idea because each program has it's own peculiar
quirks and you'll want to choose the program that "fits" you.

But please be aware that it's normal for there to be a bit of a learning curve with software such as this.
So don't give up right away. You may even want to read the manual!
