MP3 Remix Software

This is a summary of what we believe to be some of the best MP3 Remix Software on the market and where to find it. We recommend SameDayMusic for all of your music needs!

M-Audio Pro Tools

For more than twenty years, Pro Tools has been a major force in audio production software and digital workstations. Not content to while new comers like Ableton gained traction and early competitors like FruityLoops evolved, Pro Tools has come full circle to hardware with its specially-designed Pro Tools M-Powered edition, which brings Pro Tools LE functionality to the popular M-Audio devices.

The interface is so much better than past versions. The bundle is superb as well when you consider the Virtual Instruments that are shipped with it, such as the Grand Piano, Eleven LE and Xpand. The entire workflow is nice, everything is where you need it, and there's a tool for everything.


ACID Pro 7 has come a long way since its debut in 1998 as a loop-based music sequencer, and the program has been a favorite for music producers almost from the beginning. Version 7 keeps all of the functionality that has made it popular among professionals in the music industry and adds some more features that help it stay up to date.

Enhanced beatmapping facility can handle songs with varying tempo and time signatures, and you can also implement tempo changes into any project. Acid Pro 7 ships with an extensive bonus software bundle, 3000 music loops and 1000 MIDI files.

Ableton Live

Ableton Live is tailored for simple, on-the-fly audio production, but provides classic audio workstation functions found in more expensive software. The Arrangement View shows a familiar timeline-based interface found in other digital audio workstations, while the Session View is perfect for improvising and sketching out all your musical ideations.

Ableton Live is used by artists the world over, for everything from quick digital notepad sketches to full, end to end audio production. With the added features and clean interface, you'll spend more time creating and experimenting in Ableton Live, and less time setting up and troubleshooting.

Apple Logic Studio

For years, few of the most popular audio production software programs were available for the Mac. Users either had to run a parallel platform, which often delivers shaky results at best, or run one of the handful of programs that had been designed for the platform. That all changed in 2002, the year Apple acquired Emagic.

Logic Pro is one part of the updated Logic Studio, along with other music-related tools such as MainStage 2, Soundtrack Pro 3 and WaveBurner 1.6. We'll be focusing on Logic Pro 9 here, but note that you can't buy the software on its own. There's a cheaper cutdown version, however, called Logic Express.

With Logic Pro you can enjoy a potential 255 audio tracks, 255 software instrument tracks and 99 external MIDI tracks. These are complemented by over 70 effects plug-ins, a bundle of soft synths (including those that are also found in GarageBand) and over 4500 presets.

One caveat to be aware of is that Logic is now officially Intel Mac-only, although internet reports say that it does actually work on PowerPC machines.

Steinberg Cubase

Cubase has been around since 1989 when it was first introduced as a MIDI sequencer for the classic Atari ST computer. Over the last twenty years, Cubase has gone through numerous updates and revisions to make it one of the industry standard digital audio workstations (or DAWs) for modern day music producers around the globe.

The New Cubase Digital Audio Workstation for Mac and PC. Cubase could possibly be the most powerful and flexible cross-platform DAW around. Assuming you've got a suitable soundcard, you can select different monitoring setups on your outputs (mono, stereo, surround, etc) and just as on a professional hardware mixing desk, you can choose different external devices for playback (such as cassette, MiniDisc or vinyl). You can toggle the Listen function between PFL and AFL, there's an adjustable Dim button for the monitors and even a Talkback button.
