DAW software has revolutionized music production and democratized the recording process; enhancing commercial facility workflows while leveling the playing field for home studio owners. Whether you're into loop-based beat production, composing film scores in a linear timeline, or mixing post production audio, there is a digital audio workstation perfectly suited to your requirements. But with a dizzying selection of Mac-, PC-, and Linux-compatible software from Ableton, Avid, Steinberg, PreSonus, PG Music, Cakewalk, Propellerhead, Image Line, MOTU, Novation, Magix, Tracktion, Acoustica, and Bitwig, how do you decide? No worries: Sweetwater is uniquely qualified to ensure you get the right DAW for your needs. How so? Well, for starters, Sweetwater was founded on digital audio expertise.
Our CEO Chuck Surack launched the company in 1979 — just as the digital revolution was beginning. A tech trailblazer, Chuck sold his grand piano in 1984 and purchased the groundbreaking Kurzweil K250 sampling keyboard. Soon he was creating custom K250 sounds for top artists like Stevie Wonder, Dolly Parton, and Kenny Rogers. And Sweetwater has been on the leading edge of music technology ever since. Our employees are musicians and engineers who put the latest DAWs to the test on a daily basis in home and commercial studios. Sweetwater's on-site multi-room recording facility runs Pro Tools, an industry-standard DAW found in professional studios worldwide. From basic MIDI sequencing to sophisticated audio-for-picture, our highly-trained experts have decades of consulting experience.
