    Hello all I've been getting into the swing of things and I wanted to know what software does everyone recommend to edit tracks that I've uploaded?

    I use a tascam dp-008 to record and I upload the recorded tracks from there onto the computer to edit with audacity but I'm thinking there are better programs out there. I'm not looking to spend too much money (up to $150) as I'm not looking for anything extravagant. I don't need pitch correction or any special effects for say a band. I record only acoustic instruments (bass, mariachi guitar, trumpet, violin, vocals) so I'm looking for a program that can add nice effects onto a vocal track, bass, guitar, violin, with something to maybe take the edge of a too bright-sounding trumpet recording.

    I checked out Cubase essentials and it looks great but I also read online that it has some important effects (plugins) missing from it. I've heard of acid, sonar.....anything else?

    For under $150 you cannot beat Reaper ($60). Add GVST plugin suite to it and there you go. Definitely more functional than any LE or lite version of other software.

    Hey thanks Jack! Is this the GVST plugin you're talking about?
    Is there a way to install them or are they used straight after the download? I couldn't find anything about how to install into 3rd party software. It looks like it will help with my trumpet playing sound I'm looking for!

    That's the set. Are they Waves? No. Are they really helpful and useful? Yes.
