Music Mixing Programs – 3 Programs To Change Your Music Life




In this article, I want to talk to you about the three music mixing programs I have used over the years to get an idea of what is going to work best for your price range and level of skill. Of course, there are loads of programs out there you could choose, but these are my top three:

PRO TOOLS= $800 with an audio interface…

This is where I started, and I have to say that Pro Tool does not do you any favors if you’re a newbie. The software is not made with the musician in mind, and you really have to be a geek to get to the hang of it.

But if you spend six months with it, you will have great results.

You do get a full set of effects and a massive mixer. Plus, the best audio editing software available anywhere.

GARAGEBAND = Free with a $1000 Apple Mac…

I love this software because it cuts away all the setup time and lets you start recording within a few minutes. This was the second of the music mixing programs I used because it came free with my mac. It comes with a massive list of drum sounds that automatically match the tempo of your record. You don’t need to have loads of outboard effects either because you can get a pro sound from the built-in stuff if you use it in the right way.

It’s great!
AUDACITY = $0

This program is totally free, and you can’t really find a better price than that on the market 😉 It pretty much does most of the simple functions of Pro Tools, and there is also a massive list of plug-ins to enhance your tracks. This is a great program if you’re running a PC and don’t have a big budget.

Final thoughts.

If I had to pick one of these music mixing programs, I think I would have to go with Garageband because it has enabled me to sell all my equipment and have a few leads and a mac. Even though I don’t have all that expensive gear anymore, I can still get my stuff played on the radio because I follow a simple step-by-step recording blueprint every time.
