WHAT'S THE MEANING?

The digital audio workstation, or DAW, is a tool to record, mix, or refine audio files. It can either be an electronic device or a digital application.

DID YOU KNOW? 

Did you know that the first commercially-viable digital audio workstation was created in 1978? Music production was an expensive venture in the 1960s and 1970s since the hardware for recording and processing were not as affordable as they are today. But in 1978, audiophile company Soundstream created the Digital Editing System, a powerful but slightly affordable DEC PDP-11/60 minicomputer with a Digital Audio Processor software. It had a Braegen hard disk drive, an oscilloscope, and a video display terminal. In the late 1980s, DAWs became cheaper as more companies joined the market, with Yamaha, Apple, Atari, and Commodore putting out products that can process audio files. 

Digidesign then opened the door for the software types of DAWs when they launched Pro Tools in 1989, prompting most major music producers to buy the product and use it as a software for their physical DAWs. Only in 1999 did a music producer created a full song using only the Pro Tools software, when Charles Dye and Desmond Child processed Ricky Martin's Livin' La Vida Loca. In a 2017 survey by AudioSkills, Pro Tools remain as the favorite DAW software, chosen by 30% of those who answered the survey, though Logic Pro (27%) and GarageBand (24) were not far behind.

    "Nanoloop is one of the easiest to use and most comprehensive music making apps I have ever used. It makes it super simple to make music on the go and share it with everyone. It has a real cool export that allows you to export in wav or ogg and you could upload it directly onto your dropbox and/or soundcloud. It also has so many options like uploading samples from your phone and recording directly to it through your microphone. If you don't want to use your own samples, it also has very powerful and amazingly fun synthesizers you can mess with. With 8 channels to use, this mobile music maker, is perfect for making professional sounding tracks on the go. I use this every day on my commute to and from work, where I have already made at least 13 new tracks since downloading this app. Overall I believe all music makers would love to use this app while they are on the go. A must for all music lovers."

    "WOW! As a professional singer and university professor, I am very happy with Audio Evolution Mobile when I'm away from the studio. On my Android, I can create my own recordings from start to finish with all the finesse of a professional studio. I use the internal mic to record, and then I can do unlimited editing--you name it, including virtual drum patterns and musical instrument sounds. With this app, I feel my studio is completely portable."

    "MorphWiz is a great music app that lets you get pretty immersive with how you produce sound and produces stunning visuals to go with it. The interface is fully playable and something other apps try to emulate, but this one is the original that started this category to begin with. Dream Theater is one of my favorite bands and the genius behind it created this very simple but effective music application."

    "I'll be honest - this app isn't great. It's not bad, it's not broken or dysfunctional. It just...what does it do that other apps don't do better? It's pointless. It's too amateur and low-level to be serious and just not good enough to be fun, like a game. It's something to poke at to relieve mind-numbing boredom - that's my only explanation. Move along, nothing to see here."

    "I've used other apps but this is the most organized and simple DAW I've used so far. The multi-platform compatibility helps me take me work with me wherever I go. I use it to create all of my music and I can't believe it was made with an app. My only wish is that the graphics would be updated!"

    "If you want to create good sounding music, Caustic 3 may be your ticket. There's the ability to create numerous machines for synthesis and a whole library of sound. It can use some improvement as the interface isn't always the best, but an enjoyable app nonetheless."

    "I'm surprised at just how much this app has going for it. The free version has quite a bit behind the paywall, but for five dollars you get quite a bit. Works really well, if you can afford to buy the full-featured version."

    "FL Studio Mobile might not be the best app for the purpose; the share function of the app, according to a review on the Google Play store, does not work at all. This might not fit my applications for the app."
