oh, ok. i figured it out, but i thought it was a music composing program. I can still use it though, since i have a mic and some instruments.
There are basicly 3 resources you can use to compose music on your computer. Recordings, Midi, and loops. With the right plugins audacity can use all three. Recordings are easy to do in Audacity just press the record button, apply the nessasary noise and eq filters to clean it up and trim it to right lenght. For midi you need to have some sort of midi plugin or midi device but you can put midi tracks into Audacity, I have yet to find a free midi plugin that works with Audacity, but if you can get ahold of one than great. Pre recorded loops can also be used in ACID, just set snapping on (edit->snap-to->Snap On), and copy paste to make them loop. Their are plenty of places you can buy loops, their are also some sites where you can get free ones like looperman.com
