Are you not sure how to go about recording yourself to share your music with Musmakers? We have compiled a list of computer programs that allow you to record to your computer with a little bit of information and links to where you can find some of them.
Audacity is free, open source software for recording and editing sounds. It is available for Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, GNU/Linux, and other operating systems.
"The closest native equivalent to Cubase® for Linux" – Sound on Sound
Rosegarden is a professional audio and MIDI sequencer, score editor, and general-purpose music composition and editing environment.
Acid XPress is a free loop-based music software. You can download royalty-free loops and samples or create your own. This is a good program for anytime you need to work with more than one track or sound at a time (Bass, lead vocal, guitar, etc.).
(If you like Acid XPress, I suggest looking into ACID Music Studio and Acid Pro http://www.sonymediasoftware.com/)
Anvil Studio is a freeware MIDI notation program. It has a simple, easy-to-learn interface, and a solid MIDI percussion tool as well the standard multiple track mixer. It does what it sets out to do, but keep in mind that you get what you pay for.
Fruity loops is a sequencer application, with loads of handy utilities for creating drum loops, adding effects and composing melodies. Full version is around $150, but the demo version is still excellent (and free) with the only drawback being that you cannot save projects halfway through, you can only export finished tunes. So you basically have to commplete the piece in one 'sitting'.
BEASTIt says "Your Solution for Music Composition and Synthesis", but I know nothing about it. It's free though, so try it out and write about it here:
A look-alike to FastTracker and ProTracker.
NoteWorthyAnother freeware MIDI notation program. Many say it's easier and better than most other programs, including Anvil Studio.
G.F. SoftwareInteresting things you can download on this website are an exercising program for guitar players and a program to make pianoplayers able to play the piano with their PC-keyboard.
ChionicChionic is the most advanced sampler for Linux.
Pure Data is a graphical programming language for the creation of interactive computer music and multimedia works. Available for Linux, Mac and Windows.
