Hi I have the Line 6 POD Farm audio interface and I'm looking for a decent recording software that would be compatible with it. I got this RiffWorks thing along with it, but I want to be able to record a regular track, not just riffs. I tried Pro Tools, but it says I need a special Digidesign hardware for it...

Thanks

Logic Pro 9?
1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

PT 9 works with any interface but Reaper is what I use (as well as Logic 9 on my G5)
Now running an Eleven Rack with Pro Tools 10.3.3 - it's amazing and I'm having ball with it - worth every penny. PT 10 is tops IMO and the Eleven Rack is a work of art!

Pro Tools does not need Digi hardware unless it's version 8 or older. Version 9 and 10 should work just fine.

Are you on a Mac or Windows computer?


Reaper is a great choice. It's free as long as you want to evaluate it, and only $60 to buy the software. It can do everything the more expensive DAWs can do, and is constantly getting updated.

Your other choices would be:

Presonus Studio One
Steinberg Cubase / Nuendo
Avid Pro Tools
Ableton Live
Mackie Tracktion
Adobe Audition
Propellerhead Record

PC Only:

Cakewalk Sonar
Magix Samplitude
RML Labs SAWStudio

Mac Only:

Apple Logic Pro

Of course, there's also the DAWs aimed toward newer users, so they're easier to get a hang of, but often have many limitations, and others that are more aimed at electronic music:

Apple Garageband
Sony ACID
Acoustica Mixcraft
Image-Line FL Studio
Propellerhead Reason


I've highlighted the ones that are the biggest on the market today. Studio One is the newcomer, but is getting a ton of praise from the recording community, and is cheaper than the other big ones, and is probably the one I'd suggest you get if you don't want to go for Reaper - Though I'd highly suggest you try out Reaper first before spending money on something else.

Everything after pt8 can be used only any hardware.

Reaper is worth a shot since it has an unlimited trial and $40 gets you a life few if you sell less than 2500 copies or something like that.


Edit: I was beat and apparently reaper went up in cost. Personally I love me some FL Studio no matter genre I am recording at the time, oh and lifetime free updates.

Really?

Reaper has been $60 as long as I can remember?

It was $40 until 4.0 got released. A steal at either price, regardless.
Let's party.

I bought it when 3.something was still out and it was $60.
