|My personal fave is Adobe Audition. I have been using it for almost 20 years since back when it was owned by Cool Edit. It has all the recording, edit, multi-tracking and effect features you mentioned. There are several versions and form factors, including installed software or monthly cloud services, ranging in price from used CD versions on Ebay for around $50, to the newer professional wiz-bang stuff directly from Adobe that can run from low hundreds into the thousands. I have used many of them, but I personally like the older versions for ease of use, and from what you are saying your own needs and desires are, that's what I would go shopping for. Even though many of the older, dedicated software versions came out when Windows 98-XP was current, I have installed older versions on Windows 7 and it runs just fine. Here's a v 1.0 on Ebay that would probably suit your needs perfectly assuming you install it on Windows 7 or lower (or possibly Windows 8 or above.. though I have never tried it). |
There are a LOT of apps available from a LOT of companies. Audition just happens to be my preference. Hope this helps.

|I've been using Audacity for a few years and have found it pretty easy to use. |
It is free, open source, multi-platform audio software for multi-track recording and editing. I run it on Windows 7 both 32 and 64 bit.
It has taught me quite a bit about recording. I also use it to edit audio files that have problems or tracks that I want to delete or add sections to.

Current Cubase if you are comfortable with it. Lots of versions depending on your needs and you might get upgrade pricing.
Reaper is another option with free trial and low price if you decide to buy it.
Both programs have nice starting presets that will handle 95% of your needs without having to RTFM.

Another vote for Audacity. I downloaded it and within a half hour recorded the latest song I wrote. Sent the song off to an old friend who is a well known Nashville songwriter and he flipped over it. My first recording was crude in my opinion, I didn't take time to learn the software yet. But with a tweak of pitch and the addition of reverb it made a passable demo good enough to excite my friend whose songs have been recorded by Garth Brooks, John Denver, Charlie Pride, Dianna Ross and many others.
