For bedroom guitarists (or bassists, singers etc.). I found this site was pretty cool for getting a mix of the instruments to play along to:
Once you buy a song, you can download any combination of layers/tracks within that song such as click track, drum track, bass track etc.
I used Cockos Reaper and put the click track and drum track as two separate tracks.
I had a free version of Cubase LE that was bundled with my Zoom guitar effects pedal. This was great on XP but moving to Windows 7 64-bit it looked like I’d need to pay for an expensive upgrade.
A bit of research and I found Cokos Reaper http://www.reaper.fm/, only $40 for a personal license and it does everything I need. Also Zoom released a 64-bit ASIO driver for the 7.1ut guitar effect pedal which seems to work perfectly. Found I was up and running faster than the version of Cubase I was previously using.
