Garageband vs Audacity vs FL Studio

Hey guys, For a long time I have been looking for a music composing app. I am a beginner in composing and would like to try out a few songs. I have a Macbook Air at my place. Which is the best app for MAC if I want to compose music?

Audacity is the best thing to

Audacity is the best thing to learn actually.
But I wouldn't compare it with DAW's like FL studio or GarageBand.
 

I urge to do more research and find the best that fits your needs. Good luck.

just try something that's

just try something that's free..
- Caustic on MacOS
- Or start with an 'Intro' version of an app that you get when you buy a midi-controller: Ableton Live Intro, Bitwig 8 track etc. + some free VST's

i'm using Caustic on my 2008

i'm using Caustic on my 2008 Macbook and it is outstanding experience. i hooked up my midi keyboard too, it's really fun to play live chords/melodies and chopping up things. the only downside would be you have to click everything in order to control stuff... you can't command + z for undo. you simply emulate touch behavior with the mouse and it's a little bit slow down your workflow!

create.

GarageBand is a good free way

GarageBand is a good free way to start. Plenty of instructional videos on YouTube.

If you’re gonna make music

If you’re gonna make music professionally then I think Garageband would be better on Mac, as it has better optimization of MacOS. I think it has a much better interface, although there is a learning curve to it. 

However, I am using FL Studio, as I have a windows desktop, which doesn’t have a Garageband app. If there were I would be surely using it. Do you know how it can run on windows?
