Other daws I tested but did not include:

Reaper: Brilliant functionality but it is not free. It is a trial. It costs $225 for a commercial license if you want to make an income from your music or $60 for a regular license.

Why was FL trial on the list? Because thousands of people asked me to talk about it.

Ableton Live Lite – Not free

Pro Tools first – Highly limited tracks and saves

MPC Beats – Limited track count
