NEWBIE QUESTION!! Recording Audio Tracks

Recommended Posts

Hi there


Apologies for this very simple, but I am just starting out with this stuff!!


I have a guitar, a windows laptop, a POD HD500X.


I would like to record a solo over a backing track that I have on mp3 and I have no idea which software I need to do this.


I have worked out how to USB the guitar signal from my POD into the laptop so that works, but I dont know how to do the actual recording and layering of any tracks, etc. I tried some software called Stagelight, but it just stopped working so does anyone know anything else I can try? I am a massive beginner so simplicity is key for me!!


Many Thanks to anyone who can help.

You need to get a Digital Audio Workstation.

There are many DAW's to choose from.

I currently use Reaper, good bang for your back IMHO, and is free to try.

Many around here use it and Reaper also has a good forum.
