Future Music - - GEAR GUIDE | ESSENTIAL TOOLS FOR MUSIC MAKING -

Live 10 is a qual­ity up­date to one of the best DAWs on the mar­ket. It’s not cheap, but the work­flow im­prove­ments and new de­vices make it worth the out­lay.

Track­tion Wave­form 9 | $60 Con­fus­ingly num­bered but im­pres­sively spec’d, this sec­ond gen­er­a­tion ver­sion of Wave­form (pre­vi­ously Trak­tion) is worth tak­ing out for a test drive.

Stein­berg Cubase Pro 9.5 | £480 Re­view: FM328 There are no rad­i­cal changes in this up­date, but most of the new fea­tures are both well-im­ple­mented and worth­while. Cubase re­mains an ex­cel­lent and well-fea­tured DAW.

PreSonus Studio One 3 Pro­fes­sional | £279 Re­view FM295 Studio One 3 is sta­ble, ca­pa­ble of sat­ing any mu­sic pro­duc­tion need, and even does things that other DAWs can’t dream of.

Avid Pro Tools 12 | £550 Pro Tools has now caught up with other DAWs, bring­ing in a fast work­flow to match its power. It still only runs AAX plug­ins, and there are al­ter­na­tive sub­scrip­tion pay­ment mod­els.
