    "I love recording music on my computer, but I didn't have the software enabling me to edit and record tracks easily. Someone recommended Audacity, and it's really changed my life! It's a lightweight and easy to use piece of software for all my recording needs."

    "Macsome is an excellent free audio editing tool. If you're looking for something to help with making music, it's a great starting option. More features than many similar free software, so a good one to try out."

    "Looking for something to increase my creativity, I started looking for free music making software tools. I then came by a program called "LMMS". While, it does have neat features, it just doesn't have the necessary tools to be able to create good music. I wouldn't recommend it."

    "I have always wanted to try making music. The main obstacle has always been the pay wall for some of the more popular music making software like Cubase and Ableton which require a huge investment to even play around with. Ardour is different. Ardour is a free software solution that allows you to play around with creating your own music. It supports a large number of VSTs, which is the main component to any DAW, and provides all the features of other more expensive software packages. Definitely worth downloading."

    "GoldWave is one of the best free music making software tools out there. You can record, edit and process just about anything. It works on Windows 10 just fine and was well worth the download."
