What is the "Adobe Photoshop" for music recordings/editing on a MAC? Logic?
Unlike the image editing software, the music DAW software has no clear leader that has toppled everyone else. There are many programs out there and each do the job well. The main difference between all of them is interface, and yet, most of them have similar interfaces. As far as the most common I've seen while in the business, there are a few:
Digidesign's Pro Tools
MOTU's Digital Performer
Out of those I see Pro Tools to be the most common in recording. Logic, Cubase, and Digital Performer are all great for recording but more aimed at the sequencing crowd.
If you're looking for a music recording software. Check all those out. They're all great programs.
Thanks! Does Digidesign's Pro Tools require their hardware though?
Wintermute posted this in another thread, but basically it goes a long way towards describing/comparing PT/Logic/others. Generally speaking for non-pro applications, PT requires either Digi hardware or M-Audio hardware (when running PT M-powered).
