I record straight from my mixer to my computer and record with Sound Forge. I'm sure there are free programs you can use to record, then you just plug into your sound card.

well, for converting mp3 to wav and back and even shn, i like to use mkw audio compression tool...it was developed for tapers and is real small and easy to use, it's freeware and you can get it from the etree.org website....recording software, now that's another thing and i have no idea.... :D

I have an MD player/recorder and for sometime have not been able to transfer from MD to computer. There is a MIC input on the computer, but the output from the MD is the headphone. Unless you can do the conversion, I don't think it's possible.

Use the line out on the MD and the line in on the computer. If you don't have a line in on the computer, then use the mic.

If you don't have a line out on the MD, then you're SOL, cause the headphone output on the MD will not give you good recordings.

To record a WAV file from the line input on the computer, I use a freeware program called CDWav. It also allows you to split up the tracks, so you can burn the mix to CD with track markings.

Also, to get your sound card to record from the line input, you need to make sure to select it as your recording input.

In your system tray (lower right corner of windows where your clock is), right click on the speaker. Select "Open Volume Controls". Under Options, select Properties. Click the Recording button. Select the volume controls for Mic Volume and Line In. Hit OK. Make sure that the input you have the MD plugged into on the sound card is selected (if you're using Line In, check "Select" under Line In).

You should mess around with the volume input settings. Having it set too high will distort your recording. Having it set too low will make it inaudible.

I can e-mail you the CDWav program if you want. It's just an executable that someone wrote. No installation required.
