Ok I'm new to recording.What software is easy to learn for a noob and doesn't suck? (recording quality wise) Also what are the computer requirements.I have a Peavey PV 20 usb mixer.What else might I need?I have a full PA so I have mics. My goal is to eventually record my band.Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Reaper.

It's free to evaluate as long as you like (though it says the demo only lasts 30 days, it will continue to fully work as long as you want), and is only $60 to buy a license if you like the software.

There's no reason to ever upgrade from Reaper, unless you just like the workflow of another software better. It is a professional recording suite, used by quite a few professional studios.

I wouldn't say that.

Better for a beginner, maybe, but the couple of times I've used Acid, I didn't like it much at all. It is great if you're new to recording music, because it's fairly simple to do the basics, but it's not nearly as powerful as Reaper IMO.

(Better for a beginner)

I.E. That Acid works with out any tweaking then yes I guess you could say that.

Reaper is okay for what it will do. But I spent more time trying to get it to work.

I thought Reaper was easier to get into than some of the others that I had tried. Plus having 30 days to try the full program was great. You could buy something that works better for beginners but when you get past that stage then you'll just have to upgrade to something else. Out of everything that I have tried Reaper has been the best overall value.

REAPER is awesome, for the $60 home license you can do no better.
All I want is for everyone to go to hell...
