Types of DAWs: Digital Audio Foundations

Matt organizes DAWs into 5 categories, based on what their earliest versions were built on: MIDI sequencing (such as Logic and Cubase), multitrack audio (Pro Tools and REAPER), digital manipulation (Ableton Live and Reason), single-track audio editing (Audacity and iZotope RX), and musical notation (Finale and Sibelius). Audio software is best chosen by matching its strengths to your needs. When collaborating with other musicians, it's best if everyone uses the same DAW.
