Need simplicity cos I've lost the song idea by the time I've waded thru some progs. I've been recommended using ESI Maya to plug instruments in via USB. BASICALLY I NEED AN 8 TRACK PORTASTUDIO ON MY LAPTOP!! Please help. My dilemma is i just want to throw songs at the band and let them mess around with them before we rehearse. no fuss, just basic. thanx in advance for any advice you got for me. cheers!
Here is a list of the relatively easy to use programs that I know of which may suit your needs:

Recording software:

1. Nuendo
2. Cubase
3. Cakewalk sonar
4. N-track Studio
5. MixCraft
6. Logic
7. FL Studio

Granted there are others, but those are very user friendly (in my opinion). All of which work just fine on Windows 7
