"Steven, thanks for this post. I found it very relatable in that I also have far more training in music theory than in music technology. I am leaning towards FL studios myself but these responses have broadened my perspective a bit and I plan to do…"

"Although your post is from 2013, perhaps by now you have discovered that what you decided to get doesn't really suit your needs. If you do a lot with the music staff, you should look into using a notation program as a front end for a sequencer.…"

"I've been using Logic for a number of years now and it certainly isn't a specialist dance DAW. Like most pro DAWs it'll do whatever you want it to. Since you are on a PC though, Logic is a non starter-as you know.
Before I switched to Logic I was…"

Jimmy Paladino replied to Steven Moore's discussion DAW Tutorials/Resources?
"I am using Ableton Live mostly and loads of resources online for that in the way of forums, manuals and videos. It is not considered as high end as lets say Pro Tools and Ableton gets bad rap as it is used by DJs for live performances. But as for…"

"Reaper is under $100 if you make less than 20k a year from music.  You could buy GP6 for $60, edit there and export midi to Reaper.  Or buy Logic or Digital Performer, DP has been used to score countless films, though most people know little of…"

Bernard Duc replied to Steven Moore's discussion DAW Tutorials/Resources?
"There are other DAWs most of the times they are much more expensive (and it doesn't mean they are better). Reaper has a 60 days demo (in fact it's even an unlimited demo) and is easy to install (it's only 10 MB), Mixcraft has also a free demo and…"

Bernard Duc replied to Steven Moore's discussion DAW Tutorials/Resources?
"Of course you can transpose, copy and paste, but no, they don't have a score (traditional notation) view. But the piano roll contains much more information than a score and it's the traditional way to use a DAW. But it's a request and maybe someday…"

"Mixcraft has some interesting things but Reaper has definitely more features and since version 4.5 it's one of the best DAWs for MIDI (the weak point before)."

Cody D. Boyce replied to Steven Moore's discussion DAW Tutorials/Resources?
"I haven't used many DAWs, but I am in love with Logic and have no plans to change it up anytime soon (still on Logic 9).  It's very very easy to use if you want to just get started with a DAW, and then if you have more experience there are a lot of…"

"Thanks for the replies so far everyone! It's good to hear from people more knowledgeable than me in this field. Ann, thanks for linking that course, I'll certainly consider doing that. Reaper is also something I've considered, a friend of mine uses…"

"Logic might be geared towards dance but would do what you need fine, it is known as one of the best.  Pro tools and Digital performer are both similar quality to Logic.  You could try Reaper for free, after the trial it's very affordable.  I mostly…"

Spiros Makris replied to Steven Moore's discussion DAW Tutorials/Resources?
"I personally use Ableton Live. Most daws offer similar features, although some are better than others for some particullar type of workflow, so it usually comes down to what YOU prefer. I suggest downloading a few demos to get a taste of what each…"

Steven Moore replied to Tyler Hughes's discussion How relevant is Theory to you as a composer
"Good thread, Tyler. 1) I currently hold ABRSM Grade 7 theory. I will be taking my grade 8 in February. This was mostly done by my own personal choice, as opposed to official training. I would seek help from my college tutor if I needed it but theory…"
