What was your first music-making software?

Obviously we're all Reason users or we wouldn't be here... but what started you on your journey? What was the first sequencer or any other software that you used on a computer, to make music?

I'm not talking about synths, hardware sequencers, splicing tape, etc. Talking strictly about music-making software running on a "personal computer".

Here's a picture from my (almost) first...

I say almost because this is an image from "Super" Studio Session, I started with its precursor, Studio Session, but couldn't find a picture of that.

What about you?

All I had were guitars and eventually a tascam 424 mkIII until learning SAWstudio and Cool Edit Pro at broadcast school (03/04?)
Saw holds the title for ugliest interface in my opinion Still use Cool Edit, it's just called Audition now.

Ok wait, I take that back, the first software I use to make music was Garage Band. On the older mac computers that you can get with the different colors.

Those would be the original iMacs. I think they were sometimes referred to as the "Gumdrop Macs"

Some cheap early 90's Cubase knock-off, I can't even remember the name of it.

The first music software I actually used extensively was ModPlug Tracker.

Band-in-a-box, then the original Logic (before Apple took it over).

Sony Acid Music on PC. It cost about 50 pounds & I loved it. When I was a kid I had a few programs on my C64 like Electrosound & a couple of drum programs that were fun to play around with. Actually before I even had a PC I was using Codemasters Music on the Sony Playstation. That was fun but tedious to use. I missed out the whole tracker thing as I never had an Amiga/ST or PC in the early days.

DAW choice

Hi there

My first DAW was Reason 4, my nephew showed me Reason 3 way back,and I was hooked

I have always had an interest in music since school days,sadly Im no musician as such just a hobbyist one,lol

But yep Reason was my first choice,but also now I have paired it with Live via rewire,both togehter make an awesome workforce,.An inspiring toolkit for my ambient work,ha,ha
