A digital audio workstation (DAW), is used to record, edit, and produce audio files. DAWs typically include a wide range of features such as multi-track recording, editing tools, and the ability to add effects and plugins. Plugins are additional software tools that can be added to a DAW to provide additional functionality such as equalization, compression, and reverb. Some popular DAWs include Ableton Live, Pro Tools, Logic Pro, and FL Studio. There are also free and open-source options such as Audacity and LMMS.
