I have not reserached this at all. I have a Laptop with 512 mb and a RAM.1.8 GhZ processor and am running Windows XP. I have been paying guitar for about 25 years and have owned some basic "Guitar Tracks" stuff that was not the best, nor was it user friendly. Looking for the best value recording software out there that includes some good drum modeling and will enable me quickly to start laying down tracks and is user friendly and with a good suite of features. Do not need the top-of-the-line that Pro-studios use but something inbetween. I plan on making my own cable to record direct. Recommedations?
