Music production software does exactly what it says on the tin. As a workstation for synths, sampled instruments, effects, and loads more, music production software brings everything together in one place. Synths, sampled instruments, and effects do everything you hear, but sequencers and arranging tools are equally important for taking your music from initial ideas to finished tracks. There’s a number of diverse companies who provide music making software, and you can pick and choose the tools you need from each depending on the music you make. The majority of Native’s music making software runs either standalone or in your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). Some examples of popular DAWs on the market include Ableton Live, Logic, Cubase, Pro Tools and FL Studio.


Native Instruments offers MASCHINE, which can be used to sketch and arrange projects both in the studio and for live performances. KONTAKT is our sampling platform, which acts as a host to a huge number of sample-based instruments for music production. REAKTOR is music making software with a twist, and offers both a huge library of synths and effects, plus user-generated instruments, and a means of building your own music production software such as instruments, sequencers, and effects.


When it comes to free music-making software, KOMPLETE START is a great choice. With thousands of studio-quality sounds this music production software is easy to download and get started with. KOMPLETE START comes with loads of synths, effects, sampled instruments and loops to fit loads of different genres and approaches to music production.

If you’re looking for a music composition software to get started with, you’ve come to the right place.



With hyper-realistic sample libraries, KONTAKT is the definitive sampling music software, powering an enormous selection of sampled instruments. A lot of KONTAKT's libraries are multi-sampled, meaning this music software not only has recordings of every possible note but also different intensities and dynamics. Played in hundreds of different ways, these instruments will drop straight into your studio setup and bolster it with unique, rare, and otherwise unplayable instruments. KONTAKT can be a simple sampler, instrument host, and a deep sonic scripting library when needed.
