Can someone recommend me good but not too expensive recording software?
I'm not big on gear and stuff, but I could really use this.

Thanks in advance.

I use Sound Forge 7.0, it has many effects and does really good. I think Kris uses this as well.

For recording wavs I use just goldwave (wav editor) and make all my drums and synth, bass in FL Studio 6. FL does great, it's a good all in one but there's a learning curve. Great once you get the hang of it.

http://www.flstudio.com/ starts at $49 but the $99 is better, the fruity edition. You can get a demo off the site.

Enjoy my friend!!

Has anyone tried this?? http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Son...io-6?sku=703492
It fits my budget better.

But I came across some sites that says you can download Sound Forge 7.0 for free :think , is that for real?

Actually I use Nuendo 2.0 - but it's pretty expensive software. There are some light version of cubase which are cheap and work nicely.

If you learn Cubase you have understood the basis for a powerful recording tool.

There is also a freeware called audacity.

Hmm....thanks guys I got alot of coices to consider now. I probably have to think about it for a while though, because I want good recording software but I can't spend more than a 100$ or so. :think
I still welcome suggestions though. smile.gif

Yes the ears are cheap and extremely effective! biggrin.gif

Most backing tracks on gmc are recorded with a bos BR-600 digital recorder, ie no computer.

Yes fairly easy - it's explained step-by-step in the manual how to record, just follow that.

I would recommend reaper. I have Cubase and a few others; but for laying down some tracks and doing some real-time vst stuff reaper is awsome. I also included the latest shareware version

Check out Traction II, distributed by Mackie now - Its in you price range and has a cult following due to its full featuredness, but easy interface.

But you will still need a decent guitar interface/audio card to get decent results with all the software packages.

I use a POD XTL to record - I dont think it takes ANY computer resources?...I dont run the sound through the USB though as I did not find that very good - I use the left or right outputs into either "line in" or "mic" inputs into the sound card (you need a lead making up that goes from a standard guitar jack (1/4") to a mini jack (1/8") but you can easily buy these any length you want from ebay for instance. Then make sure that the software you are using is accepting that input as a recording device.

I am sure I am making this sound all horribly complicated but its not, its so simple - its one cable from POD to computer and the POD take up no computer power/bandwith or whatever - its simply an input device with the tone pre shaped. It takes up no more resources than a microphone plugged into your soundcard. In essence, thats all it effectively is.
