Which DAW is best has always been a hotly contested topic.
Some would argue that there is no ‘best DAW’ – that it depends too much on each user’s requirements. And some would argue that the ‘best DAW’ is the one that you know inside and out, so you can make music without barriers.
We asked Synthtopia readers their choice for the best desktop DAW in the world. And the response was massive – there were 14,076 votes cast in Synthtopia’s 2014 DAW poll.
FL Studio took the top spot with 26.6% of the votes cast, followed by Ableton Live with 21.9% of the votes and Apple Logic Pro with 8.3% of the votes.
The biggest surprise in the poll was how well newcomer Bitwig Studio ranked. It took the number 4 spot, with 8% of the votes.
Rounding out the top 5 is Cubase, with 5.6% of the votes cast.
Here are the results:
