    they have a free version that I used for a while til I bought the upgraded version
  3. Audacity is great. Or try to find an old version of Cool Edit Pro 2.0 on Ebay.

    You can use reaper without limitations for as long as you'd like. But since the developer does such a damn good job with both the software and getting to bug fixes, you'll want to pay him the $40 for it. Buy it now while version 1 is out! You can upgrade to version 2 when it gets released for free (when it comes out, it will have a higher price tag). Plus, it's completely kickass software.

    Reaper is the ONLY freeware/very cheap ware that ive ever heard of a professional studio using, thats gotta count for something. Its a great program from what my limited use has gathered. I like audacity but it uses some sort of proprietary plugin format i beleive so that did me no good. Reaper supports VST which is my second favorite plugin format.

    Reaper is definitely the correct answer.

    I was gonna say Garage Band as it's served me extrordinarily well over the years, but looking at Reaper, I'd say try that out. Especially if you're on a PC. And then get an M-Audio I/O box. I haven't looked at recent models, but the Mobile Pre-USB worked great for me before I got my Firewire Edirol.
