Just wondering what kind of Recording Software Players on this site are using. For instance what kind are you guys using to record you solos over the GT monthly backing tracks?
I have a GNX4 I just started to try and use the Pro Tracks plus 2 days ago to start mixing tracks and I cannot even get my computer to produce sound from the tutorial tracks. So just wondering if there is a more basic software setup out there. I hate spending good guitar playing time on trying to figure out overly complicated software.

I record, edit and mix everything in Cubase SX3. It's extermely flexible and very efficient on RAM etc - excellent for plug-ins and midi (eg DFHS). I also have Reaper as backup on another system - cost nothing to download and can do pretty much everything Cubase can do except it is a little heavier on the CPU - also, I don't think it is dsp compatable yet (could be wrong!).

I'm using Cakewalk Pro Audio 9 - it may be old but it does the job. Sonar is the newer version.

I have Sonar 5. I upgraded to Sonar 6 but havent installed it yet. I've been using the cakewalk products almost exclusively. I do want to try a Linux proggy called Ardour, free and looks very powerful

I use Cubase SX 3. You might want to check out a free recording software called Kristal. http://www.kreatives.org/kristal/

I like Sonar 5 Producer edition myself. Pretty straightforward and very powerful.
I am a constant evolving music machine. Oh Man, I just forgot what I was playing. Oh well, on to the next song. :rolleyes:

I used to use Cool Edit Pro 2.0, then Sonar 4, but lately I've been using Cubase. It's a great program. With some nice VST's you can get great sounds from it.
