Music - Enough Said

Hello Guitarists

Does anyone know of a good recording program?
I basically want to record myself playing a piece, and then record myself playing over that piece. But I want to be able to edit the tracks completely separately.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Depends on your budget. Before I got Cubase (A bit pricey) I used Audacity. It's simple, free and easy to use, though rather limited in terms of features.
Otherwise I've heard Reaper is good but I have no experience with it.

Reaper lekker! Steep learning curve but once learnt, an acceptable home recording DAW. Current R/$ exchange puts it at almost a grand Cry, still way cheaper than Cubase Tongue and it allows for many VST and VSTi hosting.

Reaper is GREAT! And.. it's kinda free, you can evaluate for as long as you want. I think, if you're just starting out, you can evaluate until you feel like you need to pay. It's great.

My Cubase license came with my Scarlett Studio pack so it relatively cost peanuts, but yeah, the standalone is insanely pricey.

Audacity or Reaper. Both are free and kinda simple to use. Smiley
