Tip: When searching for a computer ignore the soundcard and speaker specs. This is because you will redirect your main soundcard with the one built in to the interface and you will not monitor with the stock speakers.
A DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) is a software that is used to record, edit, mix and playback an audio project. The DAW you choose will have a significant effect on the quality and sound of your project. DAW's are not limited to outside recordings. Some DAW's allow you to create music in the software using MIDI sequencers and samples. Here is a list of good DAW's below.
