Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
How to make own records was a problem also for me. I tried to find an answer in the Internet. And I discovered Audacity couple months ago. I tried it and I was surprised. No problem! It is very easy with Audacity. A good (and freeware!) program. It allows making records of very high quality because it has a lot of functions, frequency filters and noise reduction among them.

Thanks so much for putting me onto that program! It's brilliant! As a coincidence, I got a microphone just yesterday, but before I saw this thread. I'm very happy:D:D:D:D:D

Where exactly can I find that Dutch forum ? Me myself I speak Dutch, so it is even easier to read it in Dutch ;)

BobM (and Marie-Claire), thanks for this. :bravo: I just assumed recording equipment was currently beyond my means, but on Friday, after reading your post, I downloaded Audacity, stopped by a Radio Shack, and made my first recordings. Total cost: $21.79.

Once I figure out how to make a decent recording, I'll post something. My first attempts weren't terrible, but I think I had the microphone too close to the soundhole - tubby bass, shrill trebles, and string squeaks that sometimes overpowered the music, plus a few stray popping sounds that I'm pretty sure my guitar didn't actually make. Still, it's interesting to be able to hear my playing without needing to think about what my fingers should do next. I can put a lot more thought into what I might want to change next time I play the pieces I've recorded.

As seems to happen to me, the "free"sourceforge link does not want to work but the one I am being asked to pay for does;

I need advice on what to try next please!

You shouldn't be paying for anything available on sourceforge

If the normal links at http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/ aren't working, then try http://sourceforge.net/project/download ... e&94049227 (assuming you're on windows)

and if this doesn't work, click on the 'select another mirror' link and try from another download location

Thanks a lot folks,

I have now got it going; all I need to do now is to make recordings I'm happy with!!

An aside, my posts always show an "edit" button which does not appear on anybody elses- any ideas please?

You can edit your own posts but no one elses... that's why the edit button only shows up on your own posts... you'll also see a delete button (marked with a cross)
You can delete your own posts until someone posts after you, then that option is lost.
Only mods have the power to edit or delete all posts

Newbie question:
Whan I try to open Lame, I get an error message telling me I need a .dll file.
Is there an easy solution to this? Whan I open the web solutions tab, I get a bunch of companies who want to sell me computer utility stuff.
Thanks.

Yes. It is a multitrack recording system. Try it. It's free.
