Sorry if this has been discussed before. I want a simple multi track recording program (Acid?). I have an acoustic guitar (plug in), a mic, and a bass. Drumming has always been my downfall, so something with loops, or easy to manipulate drum tracks. Just want something to put songs together.

Any advice?

ProTools is the industry standard, but certainly not simple.

The loop-based stuff is meant more for electronic artists (think DJ) than for acoustic players, though.

Cakewalk is probably the best compromise for you.

You might also want to look into fruity loops or Kristal.

I like using audacity (free off the net). My brother just finished audio engineering school and said that audacity would probably make him strangle someone out of anger (protools guy) but I don't mind it.

yes, in the app you can choose the input - in my case A Line6 guitar port.
