Edit, mix, record, and restore audio. Audition is a comprehensive toolset that includes multitrack, waveform, and spectral display for creating, mixing, editing, and restoring audio content.

FL Studio (originally known as FruityLoops) is a full-featured Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) offering a complete range of professional tools for everything from audio editing and beat creation to advanced arrangement, composition, mixing and mastering. Sporting a fast, high-tech UI that runs at native speed, the DAW defaults to a relatively simple drum pattern sequencing interface while more advanced features are just a click or keypress away.
One of its most notable and distinguishing features, FL Studio is available through a lifetime license where a one-time purchase grants users continued updates forever after. The license is available across several editions providing access to an increasing number of bundled plugins with the mid-range tiers covering everything needed for pro quality music. The top tier includes the complete line of high-end synthesizers and effects developed by Image-line.
FL Studio is also highly recognized for several other features like its intuitive and responsive piano roll sequencer, fully vector-based UI with multi-touch support that extends the already adept mixer with full screen scaling and the ability to easily adjust multiple track levels simultaneously when mixing and mastering. The DAW also includes a unique visualizer plugin to create ultra-high resolution, 60fps music videos using an easy template-based approach powered by a highly configurable, modular visual system capable of producing practically any visualization imaginable.

Improved waveforms and meters give you a better look at the details of your music. And a new technology called Link works under the hood, allowing you to instantly play in perfect sync with multiple instances of Live as well as a growing number of iOS apps.
Create: No matter how you start your music, Live offers a workflow that will help you get going. Record audio or MIDI from any source. Mix and match loops and samples from any tempo. Work with a huge range of included sounds, instruments, and effects.
Finish: Live helps you get from a collection of musical ideas to a finished song. With extensive editing workflows, great sounding EQs and compressors, great looking meters and waveforms, and fast, flexible exporting options, Live gives you everything you need to get music done.
Perform: Take your music out of the studio and onto the stage, with Live’s powerful performance workflows. Since Live handles keeping everything in time, you can play hardware or software instruments, trigger loops, process audio from other musicians, and focus on making music.

MusicBrainz is a community music metadatabase that attempts to create a comprehensive music information site. You can use the MusicBrainz data either by browsing this web site, or you can access the data from a client program — for example, a CD player program can use MusicBrainz to identify CDs and provide information about the CD, about the artist or about related information. You can also use the MusicBrainz Tagger to automatically identify and clean up the metadata tags in your digital music collections.
MusicBrainz is a user-maintained open community that collects, and makes available to the public, music metadata in the form of a relational database. MusicBrainz was initially created by Robert Kaye in response to Gracenote taking over the free CDDB project and charging people for access to the (what up till that point had been free) data. The MusicBrainz community has grown considerably since then, and the project has expanded its scope from being a CDDB replacement to a true "Wikipedia for music".
