Hello,
I want to record at run time.
I use the MMControl, but I have some difficulties.
I want to be able to record my voice and then save it in wave file. I want that every time I record - it will be saved to a different file. ( I tried, but all the records were saved continuously to the same file ).
( I have the same problem for playing the files ).

Thanks...

You have to stop the recording, save the wav file, close the MCI control, and then set the new path to the next wav file and open the MCI device again.

Also dont forget to set the record mode:

    MMControl1.RecordMode = mciRecordOverwrite

dear mcrider ...
i did what you said.
i created a button for record ("rec"), a button to stop the record
("sto") and a button to play ("play").
i did some recording but it didnt work.
if it worked ,it was only some times and after that it did whatever it wanted. ( i noticed that some of the files after i closed the project i could not manage delete them (i got the message "access denaied").

here is my code:

'start the play
Private Sub play_Click()

MMControl1.Notify = True
MMControl1.Wait = True
MMControl1.Shareable = False
MMControl1.DeviceType = "WaveAudio"

str = "C:\My Documents\" & i & ".wav"
MMControl1.FileName = str
MMControl1.Command = "open"
MMControl1.Command = "play"
MMControl1.Command = "prev"
End Sub



'start the record
Private Sub rec_Click()

MMControl1.Command = "prev"
MMControl1.RecordMode = mciRecordOverwrite
str = "C:\My Documents\" & i & ".wav"
MMControl1.FileName = str
voiceRec(number).voicePath = str
MMControl1.Command = "open"
MMControl1.Command = "record"

End Sub



'stop the record
Private Sub sto_Click()
MMControl1.Command = "stop"
MMControl1.Command = "save"
MMControl1.Command = "close"
End Sub

Try this:

In a new project, add a MMControl, a TextBox and 3 Command Buttons... Then paste the following code into the DECLARATIONS Section of FORM1:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    MMControl1.Notify = False
    MMControl1.Wait = False
    MMControl1.Shareable = False
    MMControl1.DeviceType = "WaveAudio"
    MMControl1.filename = Text1.Text
    MMControl1.To = 10000
    MMControl1.Command = "Open"
    MMControl1.RecordMode = mciRecordOverwrite
    MMControl1.Command = "Record"
End Sub
Private Sub Command2_Click()
    MMControl1.Command = "Save"
    MMControl1.Command = "Close"
End Sub
Private Sub Command3_Click()
    MMControl1.Notify = False
    MMControl1.Wait = False
    MMControl1.Shareable = False
    MMControl1.DeviceType = "WaveAudio"
    MMControl1.filename = Text1.Text
    MMControl1.Command = "Open"
    MMControl1.Command = "Play"
    Do
        If MMControl1.Mode <> mciModePlay Then Exit Do
        DoEvents
    Loop
    MMControl1.Command = "Stop"
    MMControl1.Command = "Close"
End Sub
Private Sub Form_Load()
    Text1.Text = ""
    Command1.Caption = "Record"
    Command2.Caption = "Stop Rec"
    Command3.Caption = "Play"
End Sub




Run the program and type the name of a WAV file (including the .WAV extension) and press the "Record" command button... Talk into your microphone and then hit the "Stop Rec" command button. Then Hit the "Play" command button... You should hear your voice.

Do it again with another file....


Cheers!
