    Recording programs?

    Anyone know of any good recording programs for say, guitar? I currently use Audacity, which is probably the best freeware program you can get. Anyone know of anything else that works better than it that I could find on the internet?

    "Works better"? How do you mean? Audacity is pretty much a perfect interface as any for just recording.

    Exactly. If you are looking for any improvement in the quality of the sound of the recording, your only choice is to buy better equipment for recording with.

    I mean something with more features, that you can actually integrate a tempo into and use measures, such as garage band. Something that just makes editing easier. I'm not worried about sound quality.

    FL Studio is pretty good, has an inbuilt plugin called edison which you can crop samples from, then put the samples into a step sequencer. Has a tempo setting and a piano roll for measures. It's very freehand, as in, it won't show you where a 6/4 measure would start/end. It seperates everything visually in a few different ways, you cane dit yourself. It isn't represented as sheet music we'll say. Basically a page of blocks that changes colour every quarter note or something. The tempo slider doesn't speed up/slow down/correct your music for you either. There's no substitute for good musicianship lol. Record your shit properly and any program like cubase, FL or pro tools are good. All cost money.

    ^ Yeah, I don't know anything about sound quality or what programs work best but my older brother is huge into it and he always uses a combo of audacity and FL studios.

    You going to probably want FL Studio. If you mean voice recording, Audacity.
