what is some good recording software i want something within 150.00 i am just starting to record stuff so what would you guys suggest???
Not really. I have the GX version and all I did was install the software and pluged the interface into a USB port and my guitar into the interface. The thing is that you have to download some kind of recording software. I use audacity. It isn't very good but it's free so I use it.

A guy on another board that I frequent has worked with big-name acts like Megadeath and Sheryl Crow as an engineer. He raves about how great Reaper is. He knows what he's talking about and obviously knows his way around protools rigs and stuff.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

I know it sounds crazy, but try to learn to inhale your voice. www.thebelcantotechnique.com

Another recording software is audacity, its free but its limited though but i use it for recording and it gets the job done
