    What are you having problems with specifically?

    When I thought it was too hard, I spent some time learning how a real signal chain works...I/0, Inserts, Send, Aux Busses, etc..and it made most software easy to use.

    It's important to *not* think like a typical computer user when using a sequencer, but think like an audio engineer. I used this series of courseware and it helped out a lot.

    The only thing I've used so far is Cakewalk Home Studio. This is since about a year & a half ago.

    I really love it. I think its simple. I'm really needy when it comes to tech stuff and computer stuff, and visual representations of things on the screen. But Cakewalk has been really easy.

    But I don't do MIDI of any kind so maybe thats something to think about.

    You'd be hard pressed to find anything simpler than Apple Computer's GarageBand. Free with purchase of a Mac for the last 10 months, or part of the $49 iLife '04 bundle for others.

    But you have to have access to a Mac, of course.
