I pretty much exclusively use Audacity to record, mix and master. When I feel like recording MIDI (rarely) I use LMMS. I briefly tried Ardour but saw no benefit over Audacity. What software do you use to produce your music?

I've been playing with Audacity a little bit as a noise removal tool for audio files.  Looks cool although I've never used it for music.

I'm currently using Reaper, I think it's way more reliable and practical than Audacity

yeah, I use to use it for cleaning up wav files - but found it a little too clunky for mixing. 'twas a long time ago though so maybe it's evolved a bit since then.

^ It is clunky.  Do you know of a cleaner tool for fixing up spoken word files, to enhance clarity?  I'm doing some transcription work, and we get some pretty bad recordings...speeches, focus groups, lots of background and bad mics.  If you know of a free, simpler program than Audacity let me know. 

The transcription software (express scribe) has its own noise removal, which is helpful, but probably not optimal.

I use a 4 track looper, the Electro-Harmonix 45000 for recording and overdubbing. For post recording fix up, I use either the 45000 itself or a computer program, Praat or Audacity. Praat is made for phoneticians not musicians, but I got it off a free download and it is something I'm familiar with. I'm not saying this is the best set up, just that it's mine.

I used to record, (and attempt to) mix and master on a Boss BR-864.
To burn the CD I used Nero 7 Ultra Edition.
I recorded about twenty songs but haven't done anything lately.
