Any ideas on free ones. I just need it for backing tracks.
Also any free recording software someone knows about?=)

Ask a pirate, or the right forum.
I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money.I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.

Audacity is **** compared to REAPER.
For serious mixing and recording you want REAPER.
I'm not sure about getting programmed drums for free, unless you torrented Drumagog or EZDrummer.
