Choosing a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW)


There are so many amazing DAW programs available today, it’s hard to know which one is the right one for you. In this video, I discuss the important points that you should consider when deciding which DAW program you want to study. In fact, it’s not a bad idea to learn more than one DAW program because each DAW program has its strengths and weaknesses, and as a busy working professional you will undoubtedly work with clients and co-writers who are using different programs. Indeed, the students in many of my music production classes here at Berklee Online are using different DAW programs. But we’re all working together on the same course material. Check out the video below to learn how this works and what you should keep in mind as you’re deciding on the best DAW program for your music productions.
