MultitrackStudio is a reliable utility designed to record audio and MIDI files and turn your computer into a digital multitrack music recording studio.
You can record your own songs, recording tracks while playing along with previously recorded ones.
It contains a multitrack recorder, a mixer, and lots of effects: everything you need to record your own CD.

· Memory Usage - With older Windows versions (ie. pre Vista) even 128 MB will do for modest projects.
· Disk Speed - If your songs contain about ten audio tracks a fast hard disk (7200 RPM as opposed to the once standard 5400 RPM) is recommended. Make sure the disk's DMA capabilities are used.
· Video - 24 bit color depth is recommended but not required. Graphics suffer if the color depth is less than 16 bits.
