Windows based inexpensive multi tracking software
« on: July 10, 2017, 02:14:20 pm »

Need 8 tracks, with nothing fancy at all.  Going to track it, then hand it off.

I'll ban the first member who says "get a Mac". :-)

I've used Tracktion when I was asked to multi-track off of an x32 last minute before.

Otherwise I've been told you can compile Audacity with ASIO so that you can multi-track. Haven't done it myself.

Waves Live, Audacity or Reaper.

Haven't used it myself, but a buddy of mine uses Reaper and likes it.

By the way, Reaper will record to multiple storage locations simultaneously. This eliminates one of the many single points of failure in a recording setup.

I use reaper professionally. I have basically stopped using protools except when someone just "must" have their sessions in protools. DAW choice really comes down to workflow and personal preference. They will all do what you want and much more.

However the reaper license is cheap and you can try full featured before buying a license.
