Music Producing Software
From Santa Fe Institute Events Wiki
Anyone interested in electronic music production will be very excited with the recent developments in music producing software. What once required hundreds of thousands of dollars in investment, can now be done with a mid-range laptop from your home. Music producing software available these days can easily produce broadcast quality beats, but you need to use the right software.
Any software based online instead of being downloadable to your computer should be avoided. Firstly, the quality of end music production would be severely hampered by available bandwidth. If you are using an online software, you will be working with MP3 quality synths, which sound terrible. They are good enough for impressing your friends, but you will never produce music worthy of being broadcast.
Music producing software needs use 44.1 stereo synths. These are uncompressed and sound amazing. However, even if you use 44.1 synths, you need to still ensure that your music producing software will allow you to export at this quality also. There is no point using 44.1 if your end production is compressed into mp3! How heart renching.
