When home recording became a thing, the earliest versions of the modern DAW began emerging. And every year the question about what is the best DAW software has plagued the electronic music forums and social networks.

According to Wire Realm, Digital Audio Workstation also known as DAW is a computer program designed for, recording, editing, mixing, and mastering audio files. The user can record their various instruments and controllers, lay down the tracks, rearrange, splice, cut, paste, add effects, and ultimately complete the song.

The buyer should also consider what software that suits their needs, the budget, and their experience level. According to Music Radar, these are the best DAW software today.
FL Studio version 12 offers a vectorial UI that looks good on high-resolution monitors, a redesigned and resizable mixer, and updates to several of the software's plugins.

The current updates feature a real-time audio stretching to the party and added a 303-style synth and compatibility. Ableton Live, ever since it's released on 2001, the software became a recording program for composers, but also as a performance instrument in itself.

But that did not stop Live, its update redesigned Simpler sampler, new Max for Live instruments, Push 2 controller that when used in conjunction with Live, gives you a unique music-making experience, and new wireless syncing between Live and other desktop and iOS apps.
Steinberg Cubase Pro is a long-timer of audio recording, plugin effects, and instruments, and actually invented the VST standard and every other major DAW development.

In 2016, Steinberg released Cubase Pro, Artist and Elements 9 with new features available including Lower Zone, a new area for a mixer and other tool panels, and Sampler Track for an easy way of playing samples chromatically. Apple Logic Pro, if you own a Mac this software is pretty hard to resist and its price is good.

If you have the Touch Bar then the version 10.3 will come in handy, updates made the Touch Bar used to navigate the project in a timeline overview and can also be customized to allow access the user's favorite keyboard shortcuts.
