    "Cubase is a very useful tool for creating and editing audio files. The website offers a variety of different packages and products based on your specific needs. While Cubase is very intuitive, it is also very expensive, and might be too much for most people's budgets."

    "Sonar is very similar to Logic Studio, about midrange in ratings of audio workstations. I found Sonar to be a viable alternative but the final choice between the two will come down to your individual preferences and comfort level. For me, I'll stick with Logic Studio."

    "I wasn't sure if I would have a lot of time for my hobby making music, so I didn't want to spend a lot of money on software. Luckily for me, Pro Tools offers a monthly subscription plan. I like that it provides me the ability to collaborate with others with ease and can work with my ipad."

    "I did not like how you can only view one lane of controller data at a time, and the quantising options aren't versatile, lacking any triplet, swing, or groove features. Pretty inexpensive, which is a plus, but not cheap enough to not make me miss score editing and printing, a scrub wheel, and various other functions I have gotten used to having on other sequencers"
