What is the best free MIDI software for beginners?
Logic Pro X is the best free MIDI software for beginners.
Logic Pro is a great beginner’s program because it has been specifically built to work well with a controller, and can be used as an all-in-one music production studio. It also is such an expansive application, that there are more resources available for tutorials and support than any other program on the market today. This makes it very approachable for beginners looking to start their journey in Music Production.
Apple Garageband Modeler offers a decent free music production toolset. It’s worth checking out if you are new to MIDI and sequencing.
La La Land (https://lalalandstudios.com/) transforms the command line into an intuitive point-and-click graphical environment for those who are more comfortable with that type of interface than the traditional text-based approach to coding a song or instrument track.
Patchage is another choice, but it might be a bit complicated for beginners (make sure to check out the manual before diving in).
Musical instruments are all tied to MIDI technology, and the industry standard for a long time has been Audacity. You can either download it for free or buy a more advanced version of Audacity. Another excellent free option is Plogue-AudiTFact2 – here’s their website, check it out.
