If you want to make music on a computer, you’ll need a digital audio workstation, or DAW. This type of software typically provides a suite of virtual instruments and effects, as well as a recording and editing environment. One of the more popular options is Ableton Live, which is conducive to performing your music in addition to recording it. The company is discounting its software by 30 percent until May 30th, which means the Intro tier costs $69, the Standard tier is $324 and the Suite tier is $524. This beats some of the best sale prices we’ve seen from Ableton -- the software was discounted by 25 percent on Cyber Monday. The company offers a 40 percent discount to students and teachers, so if you fall outside of those categories, this may be the best deal for the foreseeable future.
