music creation software - recommendations?

Looking for some good, easy to use music creation software, like Magix, Sony Acid, Cakewalk, etc.

Need to be able to plug in my guitar or bass and record. Drum track would be created on PC. Would like guitar effects and maybe amp modeling.

I am looking to buy maybe a slightly older version of something on Ebay, cheaply, to use for fun on my PC Laptop. Looks like slightly older versions of software mentioned above can be had (NIB) for $20-30 range which is great. So which one would you choose and why?

THANKS

I'd suggest a good audio interface as well. I use the Presonus Audiobox USB and really like it. I use it for everything from a radio show for my church, my own radio commercials, and little demo tracks that I email to the rest of my band so that when we get together for practice they've got an idea of where my brain is on a song.

Really great sound and it comes with their software which is a full-fledged digital audio workstation. Presonus' support forum is extremely helpful as well.

I'm not a pushy sales guy, but I do have these in stock. $120.00 gets you the Audiobox and the software, Studio One. PM me if you're interested.

I'll second the PreSonus vote. In another life, I did a lot of audio work. Both live and in the studio. Never heard any PreSonus gear that I didn't like.

BSW is a good shopping (reference) point. They're too pricey though.
