Does anyone know a quick easy way to do some multi track recording? Answered

I need to make an audio track of me speaking with some background music.  I have a USB microphone for my pc but no software other than windows audio recorder.   Is there any basic free web software that I can use to make the two tracks and then put them together and export as an mp3 file?

Audacity is really great, my band recorded our entire last album with it.

It's fairly spartan interface-wise, but I like the simplicity when I'm just trying to plain old multi-tracking.

There are three open source software apps that are a must for any computer I own; Open Office suite, Audacity and Gimp.

Re-design hit the nail right on the head. Audacity is very versatile for a FREE editing and multi-tracking software. It is a great place to start for a newbie.

You can download it here... http://audacity.download-latest.com/

Have fun!
