View Full Version : Which s/w to record audio from a cassette?

31-05-2003, 01:50 PM
I have never thought about recording sound until now. what do u suggest is a nice s/w to record audio via the "audio in" port to the laptop?? I think the windows Sound Recorder is v limited in length of time it can record.

nothing fancy is needed. just the basics.

why not try cdex - like audiograbber copies music direct from cd rather than soundcard BUT is free, copies all the tracks u want, small d/l, & includes open source Lame encoder: http://www.cdex.n3.net/

Im surprised Susan or Clueless hasnt said anything about GoldWave yet?

Im sure Ive told others about it too:

Dont forget Goldwave's little brother Multiquence for track fades etc, and other things that may not be included in GoldWave.

All you need is Goldwave really for this though :-)

I've found that Wave Editor, which comes with Nero, is easy to use; has enough tools such as 4 types of Fade In and Fade Out; and many different effects is a perfectly adequate recording app. with the ability to clean up tracks (particularly necessary with dubbings from cassette tapes) and prepare tracks for burning onto CD.

Yes, right you are!

It is good, only problem is you have to have Nero Burning ROM ;-)

Goldwave does all that, and its free :-)

Multiquence is great for joining tracks, and also has some basic video editing stuff too, mainly track fades etc :-)
