I heard the free recording programs on the net are actually the best ones and the ones most people use. Can someone please point me in the direction of a good free recording program. I tried Google but just find a ton of junk, no helpful links. Thank you guys in advance.

Reaper is pretty fully featured for a freebie - VST capabilities etc although the GUI is a bit crap. I'm pretty sure it's usable after the evaluation period.
