There are so many DAWs available now it's hard to keep up! (What's a DAW? A Digital Audio Workstation of course, but I always feel too formal by calling it a "DAW". It sounds too much like "Duh!" so I often call it "Audio Recording Software" - but that means it's an "ARS", which is not a good acronym either.) ;-)
I've tried/used the following over my three decades of audio work: Logic Pro, Sonar, Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Studio One, FL Studio, Mixcraft, Audacity, Adobe Audition, Digital Performer, and more. I have the most experience with Sonar, but I also use Audacity (for simple quick tasks) and Audition a lot.
If you're a beginner at audio recording and editing, learning to use a DAW can be incredibly overwhelming. Most DAWs are so feature rich that it's a challenge just to do the simplest thing, like laying down a single track recording. It might be a good idea to try Audacity to start because it's free, multi-platform, and relatively easy to start using. However, even though Audacity might be easier to start out with, I don't personally think it's a good choice for working with multiple tracks. Mixcraft is a good choice to jump too if you want to have an easier learning curve, but for some reason it doesn't have the great reputation that some other DAWs have, even though it's loaded with features.
A possible choice to get started at this point is to use the free version of Sonar that is available by creating a profile at Bandlab.com. It's a watered-down version of Sonar, but you may find that the social media features of BandLab combined with the music creating capabilities of Sonar are right for you.
If you want to hobnob with the pros and find the right DAW for you, you may try the free versions of the "Big Boys" - Pro Tools First, Ableton Live Lite, FL Studio, Studio One Prime, and more. You can download them for free and get a taste of all of them before you settle on one.
The best choice for a DAW will probably depend on the level of sophistication you need, whether you work with audio, midi, or both, and the particular end product you want to produce. (For example, although Adobe Audition is incredible audio editing software, it may not be the best for multi-tracking and certainly not for midi.) Thankfully, there are options galore to help make a choice that fits you the best. Do some research, try the ones that seem to fit you, settle on one (or two), and go from there.
My journey started over thirty years ago with a DAW I don't even remember the name of anymore, I then progressed to Sonar, which took years to learn, and more years to refine. When Sonar was sold by the original manufacturer a couple of years ago, and is no longer being supported, it put me in a difficult situation. I had to look elsewhere for the future. I still use Sonar because I've become very good at using it, but I've been gradually learning to use other DAWs over the last few years, which has given me a unique view of the huge DAW universe. I think it's important to enjoy the journey of continually learning the skills necessary to use whatever DAW you choose to work with, while not getting overwhelmed with the infinite possibilities available.
I hope I have given you an idea of what's available and how to go about choosing the right DAW for your particular situation.
