right now i have Sony ACID Music Studio 7.0, i was wondering what the best recording software is. i need something that can record multiple instruments at once, all of our band's instruments connect to the computer via USB cable.

thanks!!

Protools (requires hardware like an M-audio sound card), or Adobe Premiere Pro, or Ableton Live, Cubase, are some good programs to look at.

I would recommend Adobe though, great for multi track recording, especially through USB. Second would be protools, then Ableton, then Cubase.

What's your budget? Not that it matters because you could always download but Audacity is completely free and pretty good, I think. Adobe Audition is good too. They're the only two i have tried though.

Multi track recording through USB? Are you sure? I have looked high and low, asking god knows how many people and no one says it's possible nor have i found any program that allows multi tracking through USB.

Personally, i use tracktion. Its the easiest program in the world to use AND you get version 2 when you free whenever you buy a Mackie product; ANY Mackie product.

Protools is the industry standard but you need a very good computer and an M-Audio interface

alright, so far it seems either Protools or Sonar Producer Edition is the best. which is better?

thanks

IMO means in my opinion, just making sure you knew that. Also with protools you have to buy M-Audio hardware, whereas with Sonar you can use whatever mixer you already have. Features wise they are pretty close, but Sonar is more efficient with RAM and processor use.
