what if you run an OSX emulator? Would it take up much memory?

it would be alot of wasted effort.

i've tried it, wouldn't recommend it unless you've got a mac with nothing else on it for recording. everything i did in it that wasn't recorded (ie sequencing and the like) didn't sound much better than midi. if you want to record audio get audacity, if you want to sequence something there's better sequencers out there.

yeah, if you went to all the trouble of running it on an emulator you'd be better running logic or something. it's still pretty piss easy to use, but much better.

Just want something really simple for laying down/ working out guitar parts for my band. Is audacity easy to use? Basically want some approaching a 4 trk in pc form.
Oh and idiot proof! Very Happy

audacity would be fine for that. i've used it for doing wee demos and stuff on my girlfriend's computer, apart from a few glitches and crashes it's ok.

audacity is well easy, hit record and off you go.

it's not pretty but it'll get the job done.

NOTE: google fixing audacity latency before you do anything with it, overdubbing stuff is arsey before you sort it. the first link is a pretty decent (but slow going) youtube video on it last time i checked.

RUN AWAY FROM GARAGE BAND. It's evil, does random shit, and fucks stuff up for no reason.

It will randomly eat tracks for no reason, move tracks for no reason and shorten tracks for no reason.

I use GB, but obviously not very much. I use Audacity for podcasts. It's got some neat, simple, no-frills features. Ugly GUI.

I've had the randomly disappear track thing, annoying. But for free with the machine... it's priced right.
