We mainly use the Reaper DAW to record and produce music.  While you can use this program for free indeterminately, we recommend paying the low price for an individual license if you want to upload your work to the Internet. You can download Reaper for free at (Note: Choose Joy Productions is not endorsed by any of these creators, and we are not responsible for the content found in any of these links.)
