is there such a thing as software that can turn your pc into a loop pedal (like a loop station or jamman)? like maybe you press spacebar to start the new loop. if you know of any (or what it would be called so i can search for some) please do share

Ableton Live is able to do that. But it's pretty damn expensive.

you can record backing tracks then record yourself jamming over them with audacity.

or you could get JamVox, but ive no idea how pricy that is.

This. But I got it on an educational license so it wasn't too much. IMO, its the most useful program for guitar practice.

1. Download audacity for free.
2. Learn to play rhythm flawlessly for 10 minutes.
3. Record ten minute rhythm section.
4. Playback and jam, while recording if you so choose.
5. ???

Reaper has a loop function, you don't have to record 10 minutes. You can record 30 seconds and loop that indefinitely.

yeah i already done that, its fun but not as good as looping loads of tracks instantly. thanks for your help though

Well in Audacity you can create a loop but it is really hard. If you play a chord progression let's say 3 times, then you cut it down to just 4 measures, or however long it is (which is insanely difficult to get exact,) then you can just copy and paste it infinitely.

Reaper isn't free. I don't think he wants to pay for it.

Eh, you can use it for 30 days. After that, it's technically illegal (I think) but you can still keep using it. The worst thing that can happen is that you'll turn into a frog or something because of the bad karma

Yeah, if you want to abuse it, it's completely free. Of course you sign the agreement to only evaluate it for 30 days when you install it. But like I said, a guilty conscience (...yeah right) and bad karma are all that will result from abusing it (of course, it's only 60 dollars for the cheaper license).

But seriously, it's amazing how good the program is for such a small & cheap program. I suggest everyone who doesn't have experience with it (and uses some sort of a DAW for recording/editing) would try it out.
