Thread Name: Recording Software
Subject: RE: Recording Software
I used Cubase and Cakewalk in different iterations for many years. Both good, both do what they say on the tin.

In recent years, my PC of choice has been Mac. If anybody is reading this who has a recent Mac, you probably already have Garageband. This does 99% of what you need, really. (I am basing my comments at Mac owners here, not necessarily the OP.) it is very powerful, can get plug ins and if you then want to go more professional, you find that it is a cut down version of Logic Studio, which is up there with the best I reckon.

Mind you, regardless of what you use, one tip that was pertinent a few years ago and I reckon is still a good idea. Always shut down all other programs and stop anything working in the background on the computer, including killing the internet connection before recording. If your interface has a choice of USB or firewire, then firewire every time.

My experience anyway..
