I am looking for some good recording and mixing software to use with my new Tascam Us 2000 interface on my windows 7 64 bit PC. Preferably ones what ar'nt to spicy on the pocket book! The Cubase LE 4 program that came with the interface is compatable with windows XP and Vista. Cubase 5 and 6 look good but I dont have that kind of money. I'm looking to produce CDs for a Gospel quartet.

This question came from our site for engineers, producers, editors, and enthusiasts spanning the fields of video, and media creation.

Almost all the major DAW's offer some kind of lite version for a cheap price. Examples are Cubase 4 LE (which I would expect to work on Win 7), or Cakewalk SONAR X1 Essential. But my recommendation goes to REAPER, a very powerful, fully featured DAW, available for a bargain price ($40 non-commercial licence, $150 full licence). It's free to try, so I'd recommend you give it a go.
