We were surprised at how powerful some of the best free music software available right now can be. If a lot of those popular digital audio workstations out there aren’t your thing or you don’t feel like spending an arm and a leg right now on software (or download it illegaly!), you’ve come to the right place. We’re huge fans of all DAWs and music software in general, and although we do recommend going with one of the more popular music software picks out there that you’ll eventually have to pay for as more of an investment (you can also use free trials for free), downloading some free music software in the mean time won’t hurt for some immediate needs. We scrounged the net for some of the best free music software and found some awesome solutions below — we’ll also list the highlight features and provide download links.
