fruity loops, cubase, ableton. they are all good but if you really want the best buy a mac and use logic. imagen the ease of garage band, but with no limits. can do anything you could dream of in logic

Hardware is the big key to this whole thing.

As a sound engineer (currently not working as a sound engineer) this whole thing just frankly hacks me off:

"I want to record, but it has to be free!"

Pretty much sums up why I'm out of a job.

Forget all the other ones. Use Mixcraft 4. It's amazing, and almost exactly like garageband.

I downloaded FL Studio the other day (Fruity Loops have gone all professional sounding). I don't really have time to learn how to use it right now but I had a mess around and it looks pretty cool.
