Thanks. I downloaded the Audacity, but have no idea what to do after that. The youtube video wasn't much help.
-Where do I plug in my microphone?
-Do I need to record onto a cd, or can I record straight to my hard drive and then transfer it later to cd?
-Do I need any type of adapter for my microphone?
When it comes to plugging things into the back of a (PC) tower, some (most?) of the new PC's that I've seen have things color coded. There is probably also a little image showing a microphone and whatnot, if you are in a position to look at that area. There is also perhaps a plug-in place in the front of the tower where you could plug in your mic, if you plan on just using it temporarily. If the mic is designed for use with a computer you won't need an adapter, but if you are using a mic that normally plugs into a standard amp, you will probably need a converter similar to this
, which you should be able to get at an eletronics or music store. Regarding recording, you can record and then burn onto a CD what you want.
