    I just purchased an OmniStudio and new, powerful PC for home recording. Yes, I've moved into the 21st century after having used various 4-track cassette recorders for the last 20 years. Anyway, I'm at a loss as to how to begin. There's no tutorial! The supplied software includes Reason Adapted (Propellerheads) and Live 3/Ambleton. I'd like to test the system out, but I can't figure out how to do it. My 4-track is looking good right now. I bought the OmniStudio on the recommendation of a friend. He recorded a great album on his, but he's in LA and I'm in Detroit, so he can't zip over to help. His CD sounds fantastic. Do I need different software and, if so, where can I get it cheap? I'd appreciate any help. Bobby

    Yes. You will need some other software to replace your 4-track cassette recorder. The two included programs are targeted at other uses.

    The free program I can recommend is Audacity. It is only two tracks, but it will get you started.

    One low-price program you might look into is n-Track studio. You will probably want to go with the $75 registration version to get 24 bit recording.

    And then there are all the major commercial programs, all too many to mention. But names such as Cubase comes up in my mind. My favourite is Samplitude, but then again everyone has his own favourites.
    Altronics Amp

    There is quite a range of programs to choose from, and quite a range of price levels.

    Thanks, Gunnar!

    I'll look into the software you suggested. Thanks, again. Bobby
