What's a good recording software that's really easy to use and doesn't jack up my sound too much. Something like Garageband but with some more features and Windows Vista compatible. I will be using the line-out/recording port from my amp and plugging it directly to my line-in port of my computer. Good effects is whatever to me.

How does that fulfil his needs ?

TS, what is your budget for this software?

EDIT: When I said the first comment, I was talking to the guy who said Audacity.
There is poetry in despair.

Free is always good, but i can spend money if i wanted. I hear things like Pro Tools and things as expensive are really hard to use.

Ableton Live Lite 5 looks like something you should look into. Its cheap, and full of features - probably more than you would need.

You could of course dual boot your computer with Ubuntu Studio (linux), and use Ardour. That would be totally free, but definitely not the easiest option. Depends how computer savvy you are.

I liked adobe audition when I used it. Thats nearing £300 though.

It depends what your budget is.

Thats cheap considering logic pro (+ iZotope RX to add the spectral repair etc.) but expensive in comparison to free...

M-Audio Session Producer any good? It's cheap and it's like garage band in terms of ease of use. apparently it's modeled after garageband but its for windows and mac.
