I am looking for free DAW software and i found Cakewalk from Bandlab and would like to share this tip with you.
So far, i think it's the best DAW software available for free. It looks very nice and does an amazing good job !
At home i am using it to record tracks directly from my Helix LT over USB. And it works like a charm.
As i am fond of sharing tips and tricks, i wrote a small tutorial for installing and first use of Cakewalk to record directly from the Line 6 Helix (LT)
You can find the tutorial here !
Hope you will find it handy en will enjoy it !
