    I am working on a Short Film and I wish to create my own soundtrack.
    What software do you recommend? I do not have previous experience with such software. I am looking for a software that is accessible and where it is easy to compose a song.

    Hello Marianna!
    It is difficult to compose a song without previous experience or background knowledge. My program of choice is Sibelius, however there are others such as GarageBand.
    Good luck with your first song! And keep us updated!

    As a composer, for better result in general, I would recommend hiring composer, but if you really really want to do it yourself, I’d recommend going for Garageband if you’re Mac user. If you’re PC user, I think using Cakewalk and search for bunch of audio clips (a.k.a. samples) and free sampler and Soundfonts. But again, it’s highly recommended for you to get a composer instead of doing yourself especially if you don’t have much knowledge on music. Seriously.

      Hiring a composer is always the best option 🙂 But I would love to learn, too. I am still a novice and all my projects are made for the sake of experience and learning 😀

    There are many programs. Ableton is popular. I am not sure what is the most popular. Here is an article about using garageband to make your soundtrack. https://www.studentfilmmakers.com/use-garageband-to-create-an-original-soundtrack-for-your-film/
