    For years now I've been using a stand alone multi-track deck, a Fostex VF160 for all my recording, and before that, I had, (and still
    do,) a Yamaha MD8. Both of these machines do a marvelous job of digital multi-track recording, but I've always been intrigued at the idea of using my computer to record. Evidently, most musicians do use their computer nowadays to record, but I was wondering, what is the most common software most people use to do multi-
    track recording on their computer and the most reasonable priced?
    Also, I've heard that you cannot do multi-track recording on your computer unless it already has the ability to do sound on sound recording. I've never modified my computer to have this feature and how and what software or hardware is required for this?
    Any replies are welcome.

    you need a soundcard with multitrack options like motu 828 mkII or the protools digi 002 or whatever...
    cubase and so on are programs that let you record multitrack! it depends on the soundcard and it's ins!
    i really like the motu products! they are well designed and have a good price/quality rate!
    look at motu traveler, rme products!
    need more info on your target!
