Audacity isn't shit, it's just basic. It's easy to use and free.
I love Prog, +1 for synth solos and songs about maggie thatcher.


Gear:

Geddy Lee Jazz (Black )
Fender Rumble 100 (It lights up )
MXR Auto-Wah (Purple... )
Boss Bass Overdrive (I can almsot sound like Chris Wolstenholme )

Ableton if you're buying.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

Audacity + Rock Band microphone + a little know-how = decent recordings for free.

I've even recorded full drum tracks with one mic, placed a certain point.

It'll sound like shit, but yes, you can.

You, good sir, have not gone over to your friends house after a hard night of drinking to find 2 dudes passed out in the same room both holding their own flaccid cocks in hand, passed out, with porn on the tv.

If you want to run the risk of overloading your mic in and blowing your mic port.

Download Reaper, check this thread out on how to set up VST amp simulators and go from there.

Yeah I definitely wouldn't recommend using a 1/4 to 3/4 patch cable to record directly into your sound card. It'll sound abhorrent.

You should try saving up for an interface of some sort - M-Audio makes a FastTrack line that's pretty inexpensive and decent, and they run through USB.

You 'can' run direct to sound card, but it's going to be awful sounding.

Or you can by a Mac and get GarageBand for free.

But don't buy MacBook Air and don't buy MacBook Pro. That's for posers because most people don't need it.

Just get the good old, normal MacBook.


I have Garageband myself.

Macs just work and are cool.

No, get a Pro with good processing power. I overloaded my old Macbook so often because of the number of tracks I was using and the amount of plugins. It almost certainly follows that if you start recording yourself you'll get interesting in the art of recording. At that point, you'll need the extra power, the Firewire connection will come in handy when you want to use better interfaces, and the SD reader will allow you to keep your projects off your HD.

I used Audacity for a little while, it's pretty good, it gets the job done if you are gonna be doing minor editing.

But I just started using Reaper to record with my band and I have to say Reaper offers a lot more. And it's just as free and legal as Audacity. (As I'm pretty sure you can still use Reaper after the trial period is over!)

Reaper also has better looks than Audacity

Buy Guitar Rig: Session.

It comes with Cubase LE, I've made all my recordings with it, and with tons of different amps and effects you can use to customize your tone.

Typically, I buy the core software from the developer and download the upgrades, I can't afford anything else than that.

I've used Audacity and Kristal in the past, they're ridiculously limiting and simplistic. Get Reaper and start learning to use a proper recording program, you'll do it eventually anyway. There's no point spending any time learning to work with Audacity's limitations.

Reaper + A Behringer USB Guitar Link + Free Amp Sims = Good quality recordings for about 30 bucks.
