so im preparing to record a demo/ep thing for my solo project and i cant decide which program to use to record. Im deciding between Reaper, Logic LE, or Cubase LE. I used to just torent cubase but i dont want to risk getting a virus cuz i always end up getting one lol. Its mostly Acoustic. but its gonna have like some electro style beats kinda? So the real instruments i plan to record are guitar, vocals, and bass. and then im gonna do fake drums and synths

torrenting copyrighted software is illegal,
and talking about it is against forum rules.

bear in mind that logic is Mac only,

I'd recommend Reaper, i used it for about a year before switching to a Mac and Logic Studio 8

I suggest Reaper, it's the most full featured of those (except maybe Logic LE which I have no experience with, but as Driller said it's Mac only)

yeah Reaper will have the fewest limitations, and it's really cheap (compared to other software with similar features)

are you saying that sonar cakewalk and cubase have LESS features, but cost hundreds of dollars, than reaper, which is free?

were talking about the LE versions not the high end professional versions.

and reaper isn't free, it costs I think $70 for a non-professional license.

is the trial of reaper not the same as the full version?

it is, but it's still technically not free, if you use it beyond a reasonable trial period it's essentially the same thing as using warez.

the trial never locks down, but its not free.
an appropriate license is still needed. if your doing commercial work the license is about $200

i guess...but if they considered it an unfair breach of copyright would they really be offering for free past the trial version? i think that's a good example of copyright infringement as defined by the copyright owners.

But its not free, the enduser license agreement states specifically that if you use the program beyond the trial period you need to purchase a license.

They aren't, you're expected to pay the license fee. The reasoning for the unlimited demo is that most demo versions don't really let you do a good test of the program.
