If your setup is right, your mic is in the right place, you have treated your recording and mixing room, your instrumentals are prepared, it's time to get into the booth and spit that fire on the mic. But, before doing that, you need to have a recording software solution for all that hardware.  You need is a recording/mixing/producing software. There are many choices to choose from, some are free, some are not. If we talk about quality, I really recommend a commercial recording software, no doubt about that. I can only enumerate Pro Tools, Cubase, Nuendo, Sonar as some of the best options. But they are really expensive, and in some cases, they are over your budget. So, many of you guys will surely opt for a cheaper/free solution.
