I started recording on PCs probably 15 years ago when things had to be really "sorted" on the computer or it wouldn't run!
I started with n-track. It was cheap (budget is always tight eh?), worked reasonably well and had a good support forum. The pinnacle of it's use for me was mixing (and re recording some tracks of) 20 songs recorded by our church in a "proper" studio.
Soon after that I discovered Reaper. Not the most friendly name but the software is great value and works really well. Last year I recorded 16 tracks of a blues band that I depped for on guitar. Recorded straight into my stock Dell laptop. How times have changed.
