Sound recording software

I need to record sound on my computer and then make a CD from those sound files..I would appreciate any input for this..What software do you use and how easy/expensive is it..

I am hoping to avoid a great deal of expense in buying and trying different software packages..I am running WindowsXP and have sufficient disk space to save files..

Thanks
Sam

Also the fullversions of Nero and Roxio have a sound recorder in them, just in case you one of the programs. John

Experience with Nero & Roxio

In reply to: Sound recording software

Much depends on what your sound source is. For vinyl or tape to CD you will want to be able to filter surface noises. I have not yet experienced any really good filters on freeware or shareware. I have used both Nero and Roxio (now Sonic) and they have very different approaches to sound filtering. I feel Nero does better with tape and have been thrilled with the results the newest Roxio gives with old LPs. But the Roxio is a bit quirky and sometimes quite frustrating but the results are outstanding. If you are doing live recording, your capturing hardware will be more important than your software.
