Recommend Computer Programs For New Artists

This post is just about a few programs that I would recommend for any small time band or any sort of artist that wants to put some of their stuff together and record it, write it down, mix it, whatever you want.

Guitar Pro Version 5.2

Alright, Guitar Pro isnt exactly for recording anything but it is a great tool to have. It allows the user to write down their guitar riffs, bass riffs, drum beats and pretty much any other instrument including vocal pitch simulators into a single file. This means that you can write down your guitar riff (using the frets and strings on guitar pro) and then add drum beats etc etc to it. The playback option also allows you to get the general idea of what it will sound like to. Although I'm yet to find a very good guitar simulator.

You will be able to download and open of guitar pro files as well of other bands songs such as Lamb of God et etc from websites like Ultimate Guitar. Using the latest version (5.2) means you will be able to open any .gp* file.

Overall Guitar Pro 5.2 is a great tool for any one writting music or learning to play an instrument.

Sony ACID Pro

Sony ACID Pro is a recording and DAW (digital audio workstation). It allows you to record your music through the line in or usb ports on your computer. It can also be used for multitracking and mixing. At first it may seem a little difficult to use but after you fiddle around with it for a bit it is relatively easy.

Sony ACID Pro also has a variety of rendering options, from low quality bitrates to 320kbps in MP3 format, and a range of other formats such as WAV or M4a. You can also customise your own profile for rendering.

Acoustica Beatcraft

Acoustica Beatcraft is a drum machine program that allows the user to input everything and anything when it comes to the drums. This means every type of symbol and drum, along with more downloadable content, different styles of drums, tempos, beats per second, etc etc.

The sound created by Acoustica Beatcraft is also quite realistic. The beats that you create can be rendered in MP3s and other formats so that you can upload them to the internet as audio files, put them on your ipod to jam along to and so forth. The renderings can be in a variety of formats and bitrates.


I chose these three programs for one main reason. While other programs out there are great, even better than these, you can all find these on the internet to download (including serials or cracks). But I urge those of you who do download the program to trial it and if you like it, buy it or use free software.

Recommend but expensive software:
1) Drumkit From Hell
2) Pro Tools
3) Logic Pro
