  • Recommended Recording Software for Windows 10

    Apologies in advance if this is a redundant question–I upgraded my iPhone and now my plugins (several brands of guitar imports including the most recent Line6 Sonic Port) no longer work for recording.

    I really liked how Apple's Garage Band recorded--seemed to be real time (no delay if you are listening to a previously recorded track.) I remember trying several cheaper ones on Windows years ago that if you recorded while listening to a previous track, it was delayed.

    Anything similar for a Windows based computer currently on Windows 10? (using a Lenovo Legion)

    I don't know for the life of me why so many dudes are using Macs for recording, but then again, I've been building my own IBM-compatible computers since the early 90s.

    You need Reaper. I use it primarily but I also have Cubase and Pro Tools. But Reaper is the one. Win 10.

      I use Logic, and the closest thing to that style of workflow in Windows is probably Audition.

        I use Waveform, and there is a free version, too. It rocks.

          This issue might be caused by the recording software. What you're describing though is latency (a delay between when you play a note and when it actually gets recorded into your PC). This can be introduced by your computer (especially common on PCs that are underpowered for the task), your drivers (using directX vs asio drivers for your interface can introduce weird slowness for example) , or sometimes your audio interface. Most recording software has an offset that can be entered to minimize the effects of this.

Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.

            I use Reaper. Has been fine for my use. I've used Audacity as well. Majority of the time when I run in to latency it is the audio setup in the software. I use Asio drivers and have zero latency.

              Are you doing iOS recording, computer recording, or both? What do you want to do? The original post is a little unclear.

              I've used Ableton and Reason both on a Windows 10 machine with little to no noticeable latency. The interface/sound card plays a big role in latency. I use one of these: https://www.behringer.com/product.html?modelCode=P0BK1

              My buddy got the 2 track version and when messing with it at his place there was no latency, so I got the 4 track version. I don't know what specs determine latency, but I can tell you that it works great.

              However, unless there's a big need I wouldn't give up on iOS recording quite yet. Sometimes bugs get worked out with subsequent updates. It's no small move to research and buy a computer, get the hardware, get the software, set everything up, etc.

              Alternatively, you can get any Mac and use Garageband on it.
