    For the low price, you won't be disappointed. I use this everyday to jam (lots of effects, and the Amplitude LE is fun to use as well) and record riffs, etc. Once you get it setup you'll be stoked. I own an electric guitar, bass, and keyboard. In less than ten minutes I can have all my instruments (and microphones) set up and ready to record (now that I have all my settings). I've recorded some pretty good stuff with it. If you're new to recording and have a good computer, this is the way to go. Remember, you have to have a box (like the M-Audio or Toneport) to get your guitars and mics hooked up to your computer, and it helps to have good mics. One more thing: Always use a noisegate when recording so that all hum and background noise is not present. I can get crystal-clear recordings of guitar, bass, voice, etc. I use Fruity Loops for my drum tracks, since I don't own drums and wouldn't know how to mic them if I did. Finally, if you invest in a cheap mixing board, it will make it possible to record an entire band at once, if that's what you want. For ninety-nine bucks, it's worth it--and the MP3 fee isn't much. I paid it and can now make CDs in no time.

    I've used Cakewalk and GT2 for years. I just bought a new PC and upgraded to the GT3 version. This has a horrible latency issue when applying the built-in effects in realtime. The realtime effects are useless without buying expensive add-on soundcards. Cakewalk's tech support is unreachable. They do not anwser the phone or return e-mails.However, there are a whole lot of good features. It's really easy to use and is really flexible. The screen layouts make sense and there isn't a big learning curve in using it. It's designed for guitarists. The cut-n-paste loops are easy to use but there isn't enough of them. Unfortunately, you have to pay extra $$ for the license to make MP3 files. I would say overall it's just barely OK and the software needs a lot of improvements. If you want to do MIDI, look elsewhere. This is just a mixer/editor.

    windows 2000 & xp only

    By M-Dub

    from Pittsburgh

    It sounds great, super easy to use and I love the layout. I'd rate this one of cakewalk's best creations. I even use this over sonar which cost more. The only problem is it's not really compatible with the newer windows vista systems, just windows 2000 & xp. Other than that, it's great.

    unbelievable value

    By king arthur-FP-RY

    from roscommon mi

    I just got my copy of guitar tracks and this thing is insane. I have tried multiple software programs from audacity to abeleton live. Hard disk recorders and tape. I use a black box direct into my sound card no need for an upgrade on your sound card I use just a cheap adapter plug. I get great sound and zero latency at all. Granted I don't use my amplitude in real time anyways. The sounds are album quality. It's very easy to use. It's set up like the fostex 16 track recorders. however you get a lot more. I play a lot of metal and trust me I wanted my recordings to sound professional. I wanted an album not a demo. This does it for you. But I do recommend a good mod pedal a line 6 pod or maudio black box it gives you real time modeling and a better preamp. The drum loops let you quickly put together real sounding backups and you even get fills and variations so it won't sound like a cheap drum machine. Invest now don't be fooled by anything else.

    Great Entry Level Package

    By SoberLesPaulGuy-ttE5S

    from Patriot Nation

    I've used an older version of Cakewalk for years with average success and finally outgrew it. GTpro3 was a definite upgrade for cheap money. There are not alot of features as it's designed for use as the name implies. This is a great little package to get a jump on the learning curve involved with DAWs. Very efficient without all the bells and whistles. It will not run properly with onboard sound cards, but depending on how many channels you need there are some nice cards out there for a hundred bucks. Cakewalk offers software upgrades to registered customers at fairly low cost. All in all a great value.

    Lame Software

    By rknbacker4vr

    from Los Angeles

    For many years, I recorded guitar directly to an 8-track cassette recorder. Then, decided, why not try using the computer to record (I have a fast PC). Shelled out money for Guitar Tracks Pro 3 and I am totally not happy with this. First there were serious latency issues, updating drivers etc, then I found out there was another extra fee to pay for MP3 use. The guitar amp modeling sounds are not good. There's really no substitute for having real knobs and faders when you are recording and mixing your tracks. I've switched to recording on a digital workstation and I'm a whole lot happier now.

    suprising

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    I bought this product thinking it would be something fun do do in my spare time, fitting my budget. it turns out this that is great recording software! most of the time, i get clear sound from my guitar and bass, and the mixer works like a charm. i was suprised at the number of different effects/features it had as well. over all, this product is great for your money!

    Perfect for beginners

    By Recording engineer wanabe

    from Houston, Texas

    Easy to use and get started on. Comes with a easy to follow manual too. Taxes your cpu at around ten tracks worth of recording material. The effects are decent, the included amplitude modeling software is ok. I've been playing with it for about 2.5 years and still cannot turn out a pro quality finished product. It's probably just me... although I've tried recording with the asio drivers as well as the windows drivers. My finished recordings always seem to be lacking clarity. There's a muddiness to the mix (once mixed down) that I never hear on each individual track. I 've tried to clean up each individual track (prior to mixing it down), and mastering the final version as well, using Cool Pro II with minimal sucess. All in all...it's a pretty cool product for the money to get your feet wet in home recordings via your computer.

    Guitar Tracks Pro 3 Rocks!

    By Justin Stangry

    from Greensburg, PA.

    I think that the Guitar tracks pro 3 is a really good product. It's got alot of effects built in and I think its awesome. It's worth paying the money for, thats for sure. It gets the job done really good and I'm not even using a mixer. I can only imagine how much better it could sound than right now.
