    Im just wondering what a good PC program might be to do some multitracking, and general messing about? I know Garageband is a good one but not sure if its available for PC. I'd like something thats fairly simple to use, and can burn a CD afterwards. Any ideas? Thanks, Ben

    I use Adobe Audition, but you could try Audacity (free). Might do what you need.

    Depends.....doesn't it always.....Reaper's worth looking at, and is (on a non-commercial licence) fairly cheap....and it's free to try.

    I'm having a brain freeze - isn't Audacity a stereo program/ wav editor rather than a multitrack (I've certainly only ever seen it used that way, although it may support multis)?

    "This is a list of features in Audacity, the free audio editor. For more information on how to use these features, go to the help pages.

    Audacity can record live audio through a microphone or mixer, or digitize recordings from cassette tapes, vinyl records, or minidiscs. With some sound cards, it can also capture streaming audio.

    * Record from microphone, line input, or other sources.
    * Dub over existing tracks to create multi-track recordings.
    * Record up to 16 channels at once (requires multi-channel hardware).
    * Level meters can monitor volume levels before, during, and after recording."

    It's come on a bit fairly rapidly!

    That'll pay me to not check....not seen it used in anger for years....

    Cheers Andy :)

    I use Audacity for creating podcasts - it has indeed come a longway.
