    This is an excellent, inexpensive PC Recorder/Studio. Easy to use, many features, effects, excellent support etc.etc.

    Check it out http://ntrack.com/

    It's a great piece of software, and you can't beat the price - legally anyway.

    I am a huge NTrack fan. Its a great program and the value is incredible. I mixed my bands last demo CD on it and it turned out as good as anything we have done in the studio. Our guitar player is a semi-pro recording engineer who uses Cubase and he was dumfounded at the quality that I turned out with NTrack. I'm sure not saying NTrack is better than Cubase (its not) but Cubase is more than ten times the cost.

    I downloaded n-track and whenever i try to record into it,i have to turn my computer speakers all the way up to hear it,whats wrong?I've tried putting the mic right up to my bass,it didnt work.

    I tried to do this with the amp too.It didnt work if it was far away or close.

    Why isnt it working?

    1) Can you play other sources without a problem. IOW can you play a CD, an MP3 file, a video game, etc. and hear everything normally? If so, open the volume controls for your sound card and check to make sure that the your line in is at a normal level.

    2) While you're in your volume controls check the RECORDING controls. This will vary depending on your sound card, but on my POS-but-it's-all-I-got-for-now Soundblaster Live! you do that through Options->Properties and then click the "Recording" button. Could be that your recording level is too low, so check the line-in setting.

    These are two things I found the hard way early on, so maybe they'll help.

  8. It's the first piece of software I used for recording. It's gone through a lot of changes since then.

    Do you have any preamp stage for your signal reaches the sound card's inputs? If not, that's probably why it sounds so low - it IS low!

    What mic, what sound card, what other components in your signal chain do you have?

    BTW, mic the bass? :)
