|Hey everyone, Stacey has put together a quick guide to Freeware and Open Source multitrack recording software. However, I'm posting it because she's currently soaking in the rays up North. I'm not jealous but, as I don't have to listen to her complain about my singing.
A lot of you will already have your favorite multitrack recorder, but for anyone just getting into recording, checking out the free options is a good idea.
For those of you who don't know what multitrack recording is, Wikipedia does a pretty good job of summing it up:
|"Multitrack recording is a method of sound recording that allows for the separate recording of multiple sound sources to create a cohesive whole." |
Or as we use on our Multitrack Recording software page:
|Software to simulatenously record everyone in your band or simply allow you to lay down your tracks and then mix them together. |
It's her first go at this, so don't go easy on her if she makes any mistakes
