Which DAW would be the simplest for me to use to just lay down some guitar tracks. I am going to purchase a Digitech RP355 multieffect that comes with CuBase LE 4, or else a Boss ME-25 multieffect that comes with Cakewalk SONAR 8.5 LE. I have a Toshiba Sattelite C655-S5504 Laptop.
I would highly suggest Studio One Free by Presonus.
Free to DL and keep forever-no timeout!
I would DL the manual to Studio One Producer (don't worry it's practically the same thing as Free) and follow along as you're learning the basic functions. Once you get your feet wet, you'll find Presonus to be the MOST user- friendly and *fastest* way to get tracks down.
Yeah, there are some limitations to this-no 3rd party support and you can only mix down to stereo but if this product had been for sale 14 years ago, it probably would have cost at least $300!
DL it and give it a shot! Then you can choose an interface for itself rather than what it's bundled with!
