If you don't know anything about DAW software Audacity would be a good place to start. It's relatively simple audio recording/editing software.Hi, does anyone here know of any cheap or free decent recording software? I'm not looking at making full, high quality recordings with some homemade studio, just something to have a little bit of fun with.
Thanks for the help.
Reaper is only limited by the CPU power of the PC and the number of inputs on your interface. There is no limit in the software.How many channels can be recorded simultaneously with Audacity and Reaper? (I.E. record a fully mic'd kit, 8-ish channels?) And Reaper's not free... how much? Different price tiers for different levels of functionality?
Audacity can handle sixteen at once. Which is usually more than enough unless you're running a live Orchestral recording.Thanks! What about Audacity? The # of channels that can be recorded simultaneously, that is?
Providing you have the microphones and associated accessories, yes.Sweet, I already have Audacity but didn't know it had that capability. (I've only ever used it for recording from my sound card as a source, and for some minor editing, such as slowing down recordings that were converted from analog at too fast a speed.) So all I need is a multi-channel interface and I'm off & running, eh?
