yes :S but if he is just starting... the first equipment he will need is a good sound card!.
That sopports Asio natively. I have cheap sound card, blaster live 5.1 and i use kx drivers that give less lag.

I find Cubase to be very easy to learn and use. Also Steinberg came up with the VST format for virtual instuments and effects, so it's very good for that, since there's alot of amps, pedals and effects that are VST. There's also cut down versions that are less expensive like SE or Cubasis.

I really like the N-track studio...unlimited tracks, easy to use, and lots of available plug-ins.

Cakewalk Guitar Tracks Pro 3 is what I use still. Very easy to use and does the job of what I'm after.

I use Sonar 5, which is probably overkill for what I'm currently doing. I also have Cakewalks Guitar Pro which is great for just playing around with backing tracks and getting ideas down. I use it every weekend just to record my playing on some backing tracks for a quick listen and critque.

I like cubase but thats because it is what i always used. Hear SONAR very good as well, then there is the legit Free stuff like Kristal or the stuff on the cover of computer music.

Just a comment on the above ASIO thing,

KX drivers are I believe soundblaster specific (and fiddly) but The ASIO4All drivers can work wonders on many soundcards and will help with latency especially for someone starting out and who may not want to lay out for a proper ASIO card (yet!). Although, Audiophile 24/96 from M-Audio now half the price it was (now £55) so things not so bad nowadays.

God starting to sound like I work for ASIO4All but they are free and I am stunned by what they can do!

In the past I've used Cubase exclusivly, however I have found a better alternative...Alberton Live. Much more intuitive then cubase and no BULLSHIT syncrosoft protection (which is my main problem with the new versions)!! It does all the vst/vsti stuff and to me its much more accessable to lay down tracks. I'd rather make music then battle with the damn software..

Funny you should say that spike

I have never got my head round Ableton, although others I know (mainly electro/dance types) rave about it. I think though they are more interested in itSequencing and flexibility in that direction than as a straight recording/mixing environment.

Cubase still the one for me. Having almost exclusively stuck to it and Acid pro for quite a long time probably familiarity leads to bias though ;)

Hello,

I have been using Adobe Audition 1.5 and it seems to be an amazing software.
Currently Adobe released Audition 2.0

I use Cubase Sx. It is complex audio-recording-mixing workstation, but I use my Emu0404 audiocard internal DSP to mix down the tracks.
I would like to try the Soundforge out as a recording application.
Any experience?

Audacity is free, pretty complete, and very easy to use... I think you should try it, it is really worth the fee :)

I'm jazz player and I really love to record my solos on PC. I recently discovered Ableton Live. The software with easy to use pianoroll editor for creating temporary drum backtracks to practice. Recording in Live is easy and intuitive.
