    hammerhead rhythm station - its supposed to be a good drum synth software. its freeware, so you can download it from

    apart from that, everyone seems to be using FL Studio.

    Audacity might give you trouble with latency. Taht is trhe trouble with most of the open source or freeware DAWs.

    ^ hmm so that should be the case with every simulation software rite? Is anything relatively better when it comes to combining the drums/guitar and vocals?? (compared to audacity)

    Yeah there always exist some latency in the soundcard. But somehting in the order of 5 ms is almost negligible.

    But how the DAW interacts with the drivers makes all the diff.

    I started using Adobe Audition.
    No audible latency.

    And latency is a big problem while doing multi track recording.

    In Audacity I used to record the drum patch n then play rhythm over it.
    While playing I used to feel that I am in sync, but when the mix came out the rhythm was slightly faster than drums.
    And then I would play leads. Feel that it is in sync.

    Hpowever in the final mixdown: everything used to be horribly out of sync.

    NO such probs now.

    unfortunatley it aint.

    but since you are gonna get it anyway [*Peep* 2 *peep*]

    search for Reason by Propellorhead(s) software.
    It is the ultimate tool.
