Some of the software I use for my production and other stuff used for electronic music.
Digital Audio Workstation (DAW)
I primarily use FL Studio for composition and audio editing. I’ve found it to be a powerful and user-friendly program.
Ableton live is great for audio editing and mixing in a live-friendly environment.
Really user-friendly touch-screen emulator for Ableton Live.
Amazing do-it-all instrument. I use it in nearly every project.
The easiest to use top quality synth on the market in my opinion. Amazing instrument. Basically my go-to synth.
Sylenth was the first synth I ever learned and I still use it in nearly every project. It doesn’t have the most amazing sound but it still has a place in any producers arsenal.
Massive has quite the reputation. I don’t love using it, but Massive sounds are Massive sounds. I like to render out WAVs of sounds I like in massive and use them as oscillators in Serum, combining the best of both.
I have only demo’d Synthmaster, but it will be the next synth I purchase. It has an extensive library of quality, useable sounds, and it is a very robust synthesizer. Another versatile, go-to synth.
Nexus is an interesting synth. Sometimes I love it, sometimes I don’t. It does make some good sounds with little to no effort, and it does have basic programmability. Given its ease of use and extensive preset libraries, Nexus is good for beginners and producers who just need to grab a sound quick.
This program allows you to render your prepared songs into the MP4 .stems format.
Classic DJ mixing software.
Good free DJ program.
Kick-ass touch-screen system for DJs.
