Posted:I have a radio shack piano keyboard, that has a USB output, and a driver, to make the computer recognize it as a MIDI input.

I need software to record what I play on the piano, and edit "tracks" redface

freeware is a bonus.

we eat and we drink and we smoke and we try!

Posted:What computer are you using?

If you're on a Mac then Garageband is very good.

I've heard good things about AGNULA for linux. (http://www.agnula.org/)

As far as Windows goes - I'm sure there are a load of shareware things out there. I doubt you'll get much for free though - but I could be wrong.

Good luck, and let me know what you end up with as I've been asked this before!
