Someone I know wants to record audio using their laptop, taking input from microphones. Preferably free software, but if not free then the best you can get at a decent price. Doesn't need to be the best.

Thanks for any recs.

On the cheap, I'd go with REAPER. It has VST support and the vast majority of features of much more expensive software. You can buy it for $60 IIRC, but it's available on an infinite trial with no restrictions, similar to WinRAR. Before I got Ableton, it was my DAW of choice. Avoid Audacity.

So, I ended up trying out a program called Wavepad while looking on my own last night. It seems pretty good actually, especially considering that it's free.

Tried that out. He didn't like it much, but may end up using it anyway.

This..is going to take some time to adjust to. It is being tested though.Thanks for the recommendation.
