    I'm completly ignorant to the entire recording process, but figured it couldn't hurt to mess around. So i got a copy of CoolEdit2000, and i was wondering if there was any way to record over something... like go back and add vocals later or something like that. Like i said i'm fairly ignorant to this so any help would be appreciated.

    If I remember correctly you can't multitrack in cep 2000. Just get cep 2.0 :)
     
  3. I *was* going to suggest getting the Studio Pack plugin for CE2K that allows you to multitrack (8 track) but it seems that Cool Edit is now Adobe Audition. http://www.adobe.com/products/audition/main.html

    However you can upgrade from Cool Edit 2000 to Adobe Audition for $99. This will give you the functionality of Cool Edit Pro (multitracking etc.).

    So where Syntrillium had a neat little upgrade path where you could tack on little extras to expand the functionality of their entry level audio editor, you now have to pay Adobe the full whack for the multitrack audio sequencer. Seems a little over the top... :(

    I'd recommend trying something like Cakewalk Home Studio or Cubase SL. They're just as cheap and will probably be more flexible in the long run.

    Try either Muzys, or n-track studio. Both are excellent. Inexpensive, very easy to use, and can do just about anything you can do in a home studio. I also have Cakewalk, Acid, Pro Tool LE. I use the Muzys and n-track studio more than the others, for my full blown recording needs.

    Their URLs are in my reply above this. You can d.l the demos.

    Also. You can get Pro Tool LE (Win 98 only) free from their web site.
