Programs for creating music

The best free and paid programs to create and edit digital music.



It is probably the best free (and open source) program for create and edit music in digital format. It has graphics structured in graphs that allow easy navigation within the tracks and a very wide range of effects that allow you to adjust (volume, tempo, equalizer, etc.) or transform (flip, phaser, remove vocals, etc.) the tracks selected.

It supports WAV and MP3 files but to save songs in compressed format it requires the installation of a free additional plug-in called LAME MP3. Download from here.

Adobe Auditions


It is one of the most famous programs for creating music in the world. Being a professional solution based on the old Cool Edit Pro, it offers all the tools and functions that professionals need to record, process audio in multi-track modeedit and correct songs down to the smallest detail.

The full version of the software is quite expensive but there is a free trial version which can be used freely for 30 days before purchase. Download from here.

Crystal Audio Engine


A free program for creating, recording and processing multi-track audio. It’s not very intuitive at first glance, but after studying well its structured interface in graphics and panels for adjusting audio channels it turns out to be a resourceful software.

The software can be used free of charge only for non-commercial purposes, it is also an excellent solution when you want to mix several music tracks together. Download from here.

Microsoft Songsmith


A very special software that intelligently creates music tracks based on the user’s song. To simplify the concept, one must imagine having a reverse karoke in which it is not the person who has to follow the backing track but it is the backing track (chosen when starting the software) that follows the person’s song.
