Free Recording Software?

Discussion in 'Recording Gear and Equipment [BG]' started by Davidoc, Oct 19, 2003.


  1. Hi, I was wondering if there is any decent free multitrack recording software available for download.

    Thanks!


    I could just use kazaa....

    Go to www.fasoft.com. Download n-track. It's free for a fortnight; then it costs about $45. Worth every penny. Not quite free but on the value for money scale it's as good as.

    Check out the Quartz Free Studio at Digital Sound Planet. Virtual 4-track (one track at a time recording) that's set up pretty much identical to real-world. The free demo is fully funtional. Most excellent!

    While you're at it, check out Hammerhead. Not for recording, but you can sample in clips if you can convert audio to .raw 16 bit mono.. Think of it like a trip-hop-break-beat metronome. If you're the least bit savvy, download the extra sound sets and custom userbanks to plug in. Then, whip up some loops you dig and stream them to your hard drive to burn on a practice cd. I could groove on "Funky Drummer" all day!

    Audacity is pretty good FREE app. I used it a couple of years back in linux and it wasn't anywhere as good as the windows apps at the time. I think it has come along way. If I was looking for something free it would be my first choice. As far as cheap goes N-Track is hard to beat. I really like N-track I think that if they could professionalize a little more their product could be better then anything out there. It has the most intuitive design and user friendly interface I have seen. Of course this is personal experience in home studios nothing pro.
