HOFA System Freeware is an entire mastering/fx suite with lots of good presets and 20+ modules. It sounds just fine to me. You may not need much else.

Yep, I've been pulling these down when they come out. Haven't used anything in anger yet but they do look interesting.

I didn't see this mentioned so far, Caustic is actually a rather brilliant mobile DAW which is free for Windows. It reminds me a lot of Reason and I've seen it used to create some fantastic sounds.

It lacks a lot of the features that would make it desirable to people who already use more professional DAW software (I don't think the instruments work as plugins), but when I was first starting making music, I used it a lot. It's very intuitive and easy to use.

Have any of you used Reaper audio? It's paid, but you can 'evaluate' it for free forever it seems. Thinking about using this.

also, has anyone had any experience using any of these free audio tools for recording multi-track podcasts?

Lots of us use Reaper - it is very well written, stable and does pretty much everything you'd expect a DAW to do. But it isn't free although the cost is very reasonable for most people.
