i need some names of really good programs that i can use to record my guitar playing. i've heard of GarageBand but those only work with apple computers, none of which i have. preferably a program that has built in guitar effects and drum loops.
please help!

try Acoustica Mixcraft, it is very similar to GarageBand but for Windows

Audacity for simplicity, Mixcraft for pro-quality/low-price.
Audacity has a few effects built in, but you can download free VST effects and use those. Mixcraft does, however, have built in backing tracks, which is cool.

Vox Tonelab LE

you should get a line 6 toneport
i have the TonePort UX2 it comes with Ableton Live Lite 6 and you can use the toneport(w/ a lot of custom effects) and has a basic drumloop(only downside) but overall its really good.

yea obviously depending on how hardcore you want to record
for example, im not a recording freak so im not to technical with stuff the toneport suits my needs.
but if thats what you want to get into then save and buy something epic.

i found some stuff online that looked really good like audicity because you can download multiple virtual effects pedals and some of them have great ratings, i just now need to know what type of cord i need so i can plug my guitar into my computer and start playing.

cubase is good to go. Did you get an interface yet?

I've been using Audacity on my computer and honestly don't like it at all.

Reaper is alright, better than Audacity for what it can do imo.

Kristal is probably the best.


I really like Cubase SX3 which I have on my other computer, but it won't work on Vista on my laptop yet, so I'm S.O.L and stuck with free stuff for now.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.
