Silly Questions for most of you,

I need a sound recording program that will let me record for at least 5mins from my input or mic.
Possibly similar to sound recorder

If you go to:
you'll find a description and a sample on how to detect sound cards, plays sound and record sounds.
It even shows you how to record with one card and play a sound at the same time by using a second sound card.

If you want to record 5 minutes, you have to maeke sure that the sound quality is not very high and that you have enough harddisk space.

In the sample there is also a record button. That button shows you how to record sound.
I would say, set the nChannels =1, nSamplesPerSec = 11025 and wBitsPerSample = 8

That sets the quality very low so you can record for a long time.
It all depends on your free harddisk space, how long you can record of course.
