Subject: RE: Tech: Recording questions
On a Mac Garage Band is good for beginners, and the price is right, and Logic is excellent and fully professional quality. ProTools is industry standard, but annoying because it only works with certain interfaces. The advantage of it is that you can get a mix halfway done and then send it to someone else to finish. If compatibility isn't your first concern, Logic is very good and relatively intuitive. That's what I'm using at home these days.
Anything you record can be bounced into .wav files and/or .mp3s. The .wav files can easily be made into an audio CD using your computer's existing software.
I'm not a big fan of Audacity, I have to admit. It doesn't do the things it purports to do quite right. On the other hand, the price is good.
