Audacity and FL Studio were named High Performers in the report, earning strong customer satisfaction marks with smaller market presence scores. Audacity earned the highest overall satisfaction score, while Audition earned the highest overall market presence score.

The Grid leverages customer satisfaction data reported by authenticated users along with vendor market presence determined from social and public data. Based on a combination of these scores, each software solution is categorized as a Leader, High Performer, Contender, or Niche.
