What is the best program to use for recording music on PC?

I cannot afford a Mac for Garageband.

What’s the easiest / best program for recording / mixing music on a PC? What equipment would I need when plugging the guitar in directly?

Thanks so much.

    Well if your running free just get audacity. It’s a free open source audio editing program that works real well.

    All you need to plug the guitar direct is a 1/4 to 1/8th inch converter plug. (6.5mm to 3.5mm).
    Select line in as the source in the program.

    Audacity is free, but your very limited to what you can do.

    You should get Mixcraft. I use it and I love it.

    You would also need an audio interface, like a toneport UX2, they aren’t too expensive and sound great.
