Having used this product in both free and Pro versions, I truly believe it to be a great product for the money. Using a soundcard, you can record, edit, add effects, save as different file types, etc. User interface is quite easy, allowing you to begin recording in minutes. The best part is the free version has unlimited recording times, ping-ponging, full effects!! Help file installed with unit is first class, the programmers answer Email questions promptly and helpfully!! Highly recommended for the person with a newer PC, looking to get into digital recording for little money!!
