    Could you tell me more about your home studio.

    I just bought a Tascam 24 track digital recorder & I am trying to record myself some songs on it but I really need some software for looping that is easy to use,I have sonar 6 but I can't use it, it is too complicated for me, all I need is something for beginning users.

    Well, it's a bit hard to give you anything exact without knowing what type of computer you are using. If you have a Mac, I would stick with the GarageBands software and just create your loops with a MIDI keyboard.

    If you are using a PC, I would go for Reason 2.0 or newer, as that's given me the best looping results and it comes with tons of sound loops already, as well as effects to use with a MIDI keyboard and a basic drum machine. It's expensive, but relatively easy to use. I believe they have some free-trial downloads on as well, so you could see if it's easy for ya to navigate.

    Cubase SE is another program I really enjoyed in complement to Reason. It doesn't come with a lot of bells and whistles, but it's a lot easier to use then some of the fancier programs.

    If you're looking for something lower on the budget, you could try out some new programs like Looplabs, which is fairly simple to use. It's almost too simple for my taste, but it's free and you can email yourself the loops to use in which ever recording program you have.

    Message me if you want to share more details, or if you have more question. I hope this helps smile

    Honestly I would say stick with Sonar and start reading some of the Tutorials.. there really isn't anything that is easier than it for a PC.  Reason is good but you can't record audio unless you have vs. 4 and (i think) and addition plugin.  Reason is good for learning how to use MIDI to compose songs/make beats.  Its all in the box and pretty simple to use.  I've never used it to actually record audio though.
