I am now retired and I thought it would be fun to write trumpet ensembles for middle and high school students. Being a retired band director and trumpet player I also thought it would be fun to multi-track myself playing the ensembles for the demo that would go out to the young people who would be playing my music. I could actually record the entire ensemble, and also record each individual part. That way they could hear, and practice with with their part, and also hear what it would sound like all together. I'm not into this to make money, just to provide a different kind of playing situation for young people, so feel free to steal my idea and run with it. The more music we put out there for young people the better. My question is what software would allow me to put many tracks down on my laptop. I have a very nice digital microphone but have never found the software that made me feel like I wanted to actually finish what I think is a worthy project. Your suggestions are greatly appreciated.
