Tech savvy wieners, I am looking to buy a music program for the following purposes:

  • To convert WAVs into MP3s and vice versa
  • To record a podcast
  • To produce beats and someday, songs
  • To edit MP3s

I'm looking for:
  • an idiot proof interface with a not so steep learning curve OR lots of tutorials to hold my hand into learning how to use the product
  • A reasonable pricetag
  • A Windows based program... I've heard good things about Garage Band but I don't ever expect to get over my bias against the inability to right click

Right now I'm thinking Acid, though buying everything could be costly from what I'm told.

Thoughts, suggestions, comments?

Acid is pretty cool.

Have you tried Fruity Loops? You might like it. I think there is a demo you can download.

Garage band is pretty nifty but you need a mac.

For your MP3 stuff, I'd recommend Audacity and CDEX, both available from Sourceforge.net. You could also probably record your podcast from there.

Apple has tools for most of this stuff built into the OS, and you get it all with a Mac Mini - how much is this going to cost you in software for the PC side?

I hear you can actually plug in whatever mouse you want, and right click to your heart's content.

You need a Mac, my friend. It solved every one of my problems (which were all of your current problems).

I received my first PDA (Palm TX) today and before I can use it, I have to charge it. As per Step 1 of 'Read This First': a. Connect the sync cable to your handheld and to the USB port on your computer. b.
