    Recording on computer
    Recording with a microphone
    Plug the mic into your computers soundcard; The universal colours since 1999 connect to the following:
    Pink Microphone
    Blue Line In
    Green Stereo/Headphones
    The jack must be 3.5mm like a walkman plug. Otherwise you must get hold of a converter
    for the standard size, that can be found at an electrical shop or on the net.

    Sound recording software
    On Windows operating systems
    Windows 95
    StartMenu/Programs/Accessories/Multimedia/Sound Recorder.
    For Windows 98 and onwards
    StartMenu/Programs/Accesories/Entertainment/Sound Recorder.
    For Mac OSX & LINUX operating systems:
    I am not familiar with the built in recording feature
    to those operating systems; However there is a freeware program called Audacity that works on all the major computer platforms
    DL here: http://audacity.sourceforge.net

    Now you have the Mic connected to the soundcard.
    If you cannot find the built in Sound Recorder install Audacity, or a similar freeware program.

    You must find your master volume controls for the sound-card.
    They are under sounds and audio devices in settings control panel. There is normally a shortcut on the desktop. A safe bet is to locate your sound card program settings & to enable the microphone. Sometimes you must go to the advanced options menu.
    The volume level of the microphone you must fiddle with it 'trial and error' until you get it right.
    Some microphones demand a pre-amplifier but there are soundcards with a microphone boost feature.

    Working the program and recording
    To work the program is easy. Go to the recording software sound properties, enable the microphone and choose your level meter settings. Go to file, new recording & switch on the Mic. Start to talk before you start the recording, press Rec and your on you'r way.
    If the sound when you playback is too loud or soft, you can fiddle with the level meters and try again.
    Do not have the speakers on while you correct your level meters or you could damage your ears or the speakers.
    Now you have a recording on computer, save it.

    If you have problems with the format of the recording,
    you can convert it to mp3,wma or quicktime etc. with this freeware program.

    If you find your operating system's recorder is not able to save to mp3 this freeware program records and saves to mp3

    btw You can find a microphone for under five dollars including postage on ebay

    Lightbulb How to record without a conventional microphone Pt.2

    You can record on cassette tape and transfer the recording to the line-in on the computer's soundcard.

    You need a 3.5 jack to jack cable.
    _Connect the cable between from the headphone port on the cassete recorder to the Line In on the PC.
    _Set up the recording program on the Comp. Press play on the cassette and record on the PC.


    :idea: This technique is used also to transfer any vinil and other analog formats to digital Mp3 and CD.

    nice thread D



    The risk of a wrong decision is preferable to the terror of indecision



    Perhaps I know best why it is man alone who laughs; he alone suffers so deeply that he had to invent laughter

    Don't use a computer sound card! You need an Audio interface such at Line 6 TonePort, or The MBOX. Also Audacity sucks. Get Acid Pro Or Pro Tools. Get A decent pair of monitors (Studio Speakers) and a mic should cost between $200-800.

    Quality is everything in the music industry nowadays. A sound card and 20 dolar computer mic will make your music sound like shit. and that will reflect the listiners you have. So if you say "It's All About the Message" then you should know that people dont want to hear "pop" and fuzz in the background. They want to hear the message loud and clear.

    Please Don't take offence to this post, I am just trying to help the people out
