    A Garageband for PC?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Is there a garageband type program for PC?

    I need something as intutive and easy to operate. I am currenly struggling with cakewalk sonar home studio 4 on my new lap top (bought JUST for this project) and not getting very far at all.

    I want to record my guitar, mandolin, and purchased a Midi m audio 61 key keyboard to do some drums and piano in the back round with.

    Thanks, ANY help would be welcome.

    you can try audacity, it is pretty simiple.

    I would recomend investing the time top learn your way around some of the other programs like cakewalk (or jsut go apple and stick with garageband). Once you get past the learning curve the options open up significantly.

    I use adobe Audition and used to use Audacity which is free and nice. Garage band is pretty terrible IMO.

    Have a look at the MAGIX products. Music Studio might suit and there are several full 30 day trials, should keep you going well into the new year!

    Audacity does not support ASIO drivers (needed for low latency) or MIDI. AA does a bit of MIDI I think but not much. You might like Cubase? The light version is free for a month. The biggy needs a dongle. I have Sonar elmnt6, hated it, not been out of the box this five years. Studio One is free but no idea how it is. Reaper is of course the G0tO DAW but again, not sure how well it does MIDI?

    Dave.
