Hey guys. I've been seeing a lot of posts asking about what software is free and can be used so I decided to make a list. As I discover more programs they will be added to the list. Enjoy!

*= free limited demo
**= requires a paid license

Completely Free software


Mac & PC


Mac exclusive


PC exclusive


Linux Compatible -free software



Websites to upload your riffs to


In due, time I will add a brief list features of each program, as well as the pros/cons.

Not sure where I should post this but I guess a dumb question but its a question. Anyways, on a amp theres an input for the chord from the guitar to the amp, duh. But yeah, is there a drive that your able to buy that can be put into a computer so that the chord from the guitar run into the computer for better recording quality from a guitar? Just a question if not, what are the best quality sounding ways to get the sound from the amp recorded onto the computer.

An audio interface would be a nice solution, but I suggest u start ur own thread, I dont know if they'll want to discuss this in here...

I downloaded Audacity and it works great, i like it a lot.
When i click "export to mp3" it tells me it doesnt export mp3s directly, but instead uses LAME mp3 encoder to handle encoding.
it says i need to get lame_enc.dll seperatly, ive looked on sourceforge.net but they had no listings, then i looked up LAME MP3 ENCODER and it came up with a match and i downloaded it, only thing is it tells me i need ANOTHER program just to have it... i guess like winzip or something.
here is what i downloaded

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=290&package_id=309&release_id=374388

can someone help me out herE?
