i got my guitar caught in my ceiling fan today

guitars fine though
for me, the "top" programs are Ableton Live, Sonar, Pro Tools and Cubase. I personally use Sonar and Pro Tools. These are all the industry caliber DAWs...for a beginner Audacity is free and basic, but Reason is primarily a synth program...it creates but it cannot record. To fix this, Propellerhead came out with Record.

Check out the Riffs and Recording forum...theres a whole sticky on it.

Audacity is pretty awful to be honest. There are way better programs like Reaper that are also free.

Anyway, Cubase for me.

Yeah, but it maintains full functionality even after that.

I use logic - it works, is layed out fairly well, it's user friendly and it's reasonably bug free (finally!)

I have used cubase, I didn't get on with it as well as I do with logic but it's perfectly acceptable. I like pro tools, but I don't like the way they monopolise all of their hardware - lack of competition can only be a bad thing for the consumer. Reaper is pretty good for what it costs, but I much prefer logic.
