    Hi...i am not a real tech savvy guy and I dont have a ton of time to devote to learning recording programs, so i am hesitant to buy a computer based program that ultimately frustrates me...
    looking to record, overdub trax, include vocals and drum machine...
    anybody know a good way to do this that is not terribly complicated??

    thx...

    There's going to be a learning curve with anything. A lot of folks here seem to like the portable recorders--but I'm not familiar w/ the multitrack capabilities.

    One of the "light" versions of the more popular software platforms might will give you an idea of what you're up against, and aren't terribly expensive.

    I find the computer programs much easier to comprehend because you can see waveforms, etc., but it can take a while to hear anything ;-)

    I used Cakewalk's Sonar some years ago--I think they have some "entry level" program called "Home Studio" or something like that.

    There's Cubase LE and a few others, but someone will have to chime in about those.
