It depends what you want to do with it. A bit of a smart arse answer is 'sound recorder'. There's some software that is easier than others for audio editing (I find Pro Tools to be good for that) and some that is easier for MIDI compatibility. Some, again, will be easier for doing sound for video. For straight multi-tracking there isn't a hell of a lot of difference between the main players.

I'm not that technically proficient but am keen to do some home recording. I'm not bothered about video etc just want to record some drums (got a drum machine), bass, guitars and maybe a few effects...nothing too spectacular.

There's some free software that has the basics covered and I think they accept VSTs too. Kristal is one, and there's one Sloan uses which I think is called Repear, or something like that. If you browse Sloan's posts in the recording section you'll get loads of tips on which free VSTs are worth downloading.

I've used REAPER for the past couple of months and it is simple, everything works how it should (IMHO) and for the most part it is easy to set up with different Audio Interfaces. I've used a Firestudio and some m-audio stuff and they both worked fine.

So yeah, I highly recommend giving it a shot, save some cash for some decent plugs and mics.

choosing software is as personal as choosing your guitar or placing your mics.

what kind of music are you into?

ableton live is incredibly flexible. if you decide rock isn't your thing, for example, and you wanna do techno, BOOM, you already have the right software.

if you decide you dont like guitar, and wanna be a digital dj, BOOM.

renoise if you are into electronic beats and sample manipulation. all those electronic artists that make your head esplode use renoise or similar trackers (venetian snares, aphex twin)

ive heard sonar is really efficient. cubase is harder for your system to run, and protools seems like its really expensive, and isnt compatible with as much hardware (am i wrong?)

plus, EVERYONE uses it. im sure nickelback, bush, modest mouse, springsteen, they might be giants, the flaming lips, and pariah scary all recorded their last records on protools. if that doesn't bother you, im sure its a fine program.

I also rock the Live. However, I think I would go with reaper if it works, if you dont need live sampling fancy remixing computer music stuff.

Adobe Audition - I've been using it since it was called "Cool Edit". Probably not the best, but I've always gotten good results.


Same here. The learning curve on it is super-easy so if you've never used a DAW before I'd highly reccomend starting with Audition.
