Audacity is free and easy to use, check google. Reaper is a great piece of software that is more advanced than Audacity, but costs around $40 for the download I believe.

Yeah, sure.... I'll jump right up out of my seat and send you a copy of Cubase that I spent over $1000 of my own money on. Just because I'm a nice guy. Whatevs.

Seconded the Reaper option. Very good software, and low, low price.

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

Ehh.... Reaper is more-or-less free. It's uncrippled shareware, so it still runs perfectly fine after the 30 days are up, kinda like WinZip. I also highly recommend it.

Yes, it can be obtained for free, but then so can most commercial software. Using Reaper without paying is the same as torrenting in my book.

You can think whatever you want, but you're still wrong.

Not really. Taken straight from the Reaper website download page -

License

REAPER is not free. Be sure to purchase a license if you use it past the evaluation period.



So no, it isn't free.

^ Exactly what MrPillow said.

If you torrent software, you're stealing software. If you download Reaper and use it without paying, you're stealing software.

If people want to steal software, then it's really none of my business, but don't walk around pretending that obtaining Reaper for free just because you can is fully ethical.

Then get whatever you want. I would recommend using reaper though. at least at first, if you havent used advanced software, reaper will be best. Its very easy but works awesome. I have cubase, but sometimes i still use reaper for small projects because its simpler.

The difference between using reaper free and others is that reaper allows you to use it easily. You dont have to download and use illigal cracks. I doubt that its illegal to use it. I downloaded it for the trial, and so far it still works, so in my mind its fine. Maybe it isnt completely 100% ethical, but ive spent enough friggen money on music ****, and im in university, so if nothing is wrong with reaper, im not going to "fix" it.

Oh, and dont bother torrenting full versions of cubase or other large programs like that. They rarely work. And pro tools will not work for sure, you need mbox.
