Post Any recommendations for music software?

It's been a while since I've been here good to see you all again! :D

So I just got a new PC, and I want to get some good recording software that is not too complicated, but still good qualtiy. For example, protools is among the best, but it's too complicated for me and WAY too expensive. I'm not looking to be a producer or anything. I know that Digital Performer is good, but it only works on Macs. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I like Cakewalk's Sonar software.

They are on Sonar 3 or 3.1 now, which is pretty expensive.

However, you can usually find some good priced copies of Sonar 2 on eBay. It still has most the features and effects, and is pretty easy to use.

Check it out

I really need to think of something good to put here

Cool Edit Pro is really easy to use and sounds good. Cubase is good but to me, more complicated.

If like was easy, I could record in Cubase and send it to Cool Edit to do the mixdowns. Cubase gets CONFUSING (to me...) after you get done recording and it's time to mixdown.

I would have to go with Cool Edit Pro 2 too. It's not called that anymore though. They were bought out by Adobe and it's called, Audition, I think. It's very easy to use and does a lot. I think it's on version 1.5 under the Adobe name.

I use AcidPro and SoundForge for recording/rendering.
