Tape Recording?

What's the best program to use or that i can download to be able to record casettes on to my hard disk???? pc, win 98
1 Solution
Needs a bit of clarification, please. Downloading is normally handled my the supplier of the program. Do not have a clue what you mean by casettes. If you mean to copy casetts to a hard disk, that is out of my area. One thing is good since download program sizes  are getting bigger is the HP surestor, holds 83 3-1/2 disks.
The BEST audio recording programs are Emagic Logic Audio, Cakewalk Pro Audio, Cubase Audio, etc., but these are pretty pricy and intended for studio application. I believe Windows has its own sound recorder built in which makes use of your sound card inputs. Just connect your cassette deck to the sound card, set the input/output levels on your mixer, and record...
I think the windows sound recorder will only run for a minute at a time. Ok for quick sound bites and such, but no good for recording an entire cassette.

Your sound card should have come with a program to do this though. Connect as CaptainKirk has suggested and then "roll tape". Make sure you have *plenty* of HD space available and nothing else running while recording occurs to insure no dropouts.

Once .WAV file is created you can save to CD or whatever for later playback. You can also get format converters for going from .WAV to other formats (MP3, etc.) but these are usually extra cost items.
