i recently bought a pod studio ux2 and i am very pleased with it so far, but the recording software it came with (ableton live) is just confusing.. and i dont think i can even use it to the full extent, due to the fact that it is a demo version . anyway, can anyone recommend a more user-friendly recording program that wont break the bank?

Audacity is free, extremely easy to use, and pretty damn good.

Krystal is another one, which is a bit more user friendly, but lacks some of the cool stuff Audacity has.
