Hello UG people! New here names Jason. Just picked up a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2, using my windows laptop, guitar and bass. Can anyone recommend some decent software for recording, amp tones, drum programs and what every else I might need to start out as a newb? I have been playing for many years but have never done any home PC studio stuff.

Thanks a lot!

I still use an old version of cubase. It does what I want it to, it's flexible enough for me and I find it quite intuitive. Compatible with VST's, instruments and processing/effects and more channels than I know what to do with.
A lot can depend on budget - the sky can be the limit, but you may be able to find a second hand copy of the software (and dongle) somewhere.
