This is a very functional music recording studio software suite.
Comes with a bunch of loops, and can be synched using midi/time code in/out. Loop based production, or run like a multi-track tape machine. I have a four core computer with firewire I/O USB 3.0 1TB external drive, 1TB internal drive and 16GB ram, and a 4 port display card with 4 LCD monitors.
I would encourage all who use recording software to also seriously consider getting a multi display card so that you can easily see all the 'windows' you need with a glance, instead of the distraction of having to minimize and maximize windows all the time.
The program runs smooth and slick. I can see everything that's running, and can even have video software running at the same time.
With a good audio interface, this is a real inexpensive way to get into computer based audio recording.
