What do you think? I've never had experience with Cool Edit Pro or any recording equipment in general and I'm wondering how Cool Edit Pro will work for just a cheap recording to refer to our song ideas. Would I have to send the different signals into a mixer, then into my PC? When I do that should I just record the stuff coming out of the mixer as one whole track (because it is already mixed) or will Cool Edit Pro make a different track for each signal? I've tried recording one track at a time before but when (for example) I wanted to play my guitar part over a drum beat, I couldn't hear the drum beat. What can I do? What are other options?

i use cool edit and for the longest time it wouldn't record anything. i was in multi-track view, and i had to press the red r button next to each individual track i wanted to record...then press record. may be your problem too. i dunno

make sure you "rener track" for recording (the lil red button on the track display thinger) than hit the record button at the bottom.

i love cool edit. great for getting good tones. the effects it has also arn't band. just goof around with it and you will pick it up quickly.
best of luck

you will have better luck using a mixer. take your left and right outputs a y adapter with 2 female and 1 male ends. plug that into the line input on your sound card. select 2 tracks in the multi track mode, remember we're doing stereo. push the main record button in the transport section. and away we go.
if you want to have each instrument seperated, then you will need to record each one at a time on it's own track.
p.s. if you are using a mic, make sure you are pluged into the mic input not the line in. then go into your sound card's recording properties and make sure that mic is selected.
