Hey I'm just wondering what is the best home recording software that can be used with windows xp? It needs to be relatively easy to use and my computer isn't the best. Do I have to buy any extra hardware to record several layers at once? as in different parts of the drums? I have microphones and a fairly large room to record in. I also have a pretty good budget like a few hundred. I am also wondering if just a normal recorder would be better but i'm not sure. (like one of those ones that looks like a sound board) Any help is appreciated thanks.

Also i'm not sure if this is the right forum
