How to record for free ?


After a few months of work with music I started to look around for free alternatives of recording software It took me some time... Anyway it's ready and now I'm able to record my own songs for free.

Free Daw, drums, bass... Everything lonely guitarist needs at home/studio


Video itsfel:

You haven't heard of Reaper?
Best free DAW out there....but I recommend purchasing it after the trial--only $60.00 anyway.
Tons of great VSTs on the web, too.

Reaper is not free you said it yourself, 60$ after trial ends.

Fact they do not block the software is a different case.

I know.
I just don't want to open that can if ethical worms agaun--but some people have used it "free" for years.
It's up to those people to decide.

Your tutorial is really good though, but wanted to mention Reaper for you.

The trial is a non-ending evaluation trial. I believe after 60 days or so, you get a splash screen that cannot be removed until the spalsh screen is done loading (a full whopping 5 seconds).

Reaper is great! Very versatile and I like that the files don't take up huge amounts of space on my HD.

Another + to Reaper, even though it's not 100% free. Some other options:

http://ardour.org/ - Open source, 100% free DAW.
http://www.hydrogen-music.org/hcms/ - Free drum machine.

I always record bass using an actual bass. Even if I play it poorly, it ends up sounding pretty good. That being said, bass + rig is certainly not free. :-)

Re: How to record for free ?


Reaper is the best DAW I've used yet, and the fact it's only $60 to buy and free to try for a potentially unending period makes it a no brainer to at least check out.

The plug-ins are only fair - ReaEQ and ReaComp aren't terribly exciting but efficient, but ReaVerb allows you to load external impulses so I've found that the stock plugins plus the Antress stuff and the Bricasti impulse verbs have gotten me pretty far.

Thumbs up for reaper . As a novice to recording (started with Riffworks), I found the huge leap to using a real DAW intimidating. Reaper was really easy to use and super easy to get up and running.
