Hi All

I switched to Mac couple of week ago and to be honest this is my very first mac experience, and i am loving every moment of it!

Anyway back to my original thread, in windows xp i used CoolEdit to record audio files, it had capability to record upto 4 channels. I am wonder is a software similar to CoolEdit is available on mac.

Basically I am looking for a software which will help in record wave files from an input, such as a guitar or keyboards, etc.

Thanks a lot!

and garageband is only free if your computer was purchased very recently

if you are looking for something a little more advanced, check out soundtrack or even Logic Express, which will run you $200 and $300. Thats only if you really need something more than garageband. If you are serious about recording and and music, i would strongly suggest either garageband and the jampack, or soundtrack to get started.

I have GARAGE BAND and would like to record music from SEEQPOD music
or from my audio files. I have used "AMADEUS PRO" and it works well but
records from the iMAC's internal microphone.(So far that's what I used.)
Amadeus Pro costs $40.

Can I use GARAGE Band to record music tracks as I have explained above?
Can I plug in a microphone to my iMac and record live music using the free
GARAGE BAND? Thanks for any reply.

QUOTE Thanks
