Hello,

I'm looking for an extremly easy to use and basic recording software to record guitar and make drum tracks using Akai LPD8.

I've used garageband before and loved the simplicity, but I no longer have a mac.

Is there any good equivalents?

Audacity is the most simple, but it doesn't look anywhere near as pretty.

LIKE PORTISHEAD?

For recording software try this:

For drum loops simply use the midi roll and a free drum vsti

If your looking for a Windows knock off of GarageBand, that would be Mixcraft.

You don't really want a knock off of GarageBand. You want something better like Reaper.

I have never understood the apeal of Garageband. Last time I used it, it was missing a few basic things such as a master channel on the mixer and send channels. I believe it also has track limitation. It's been a while since I used it so this may not be true anymore. I think your better off getting something that is more full featured.
