audio recording to hard drive

I want to record from various analog audio sources (telephone, etc), unattended with VOX and record these audio clips in a single file or individual files on the hard drive.  Can Windows handle this?  If not, what software will do it?

You can plug some devices directly into your sound card's Line Input jack and use the Windows Sound Recorder to create wav files.  

If you want to use your PC as an answering machine, there are several shareware and commercial apps that will record voice messages and save them on your PC as wav files.  Your PC will use your modem to receive the incoming calls.  WinFax Pro by Symantec comes to mind but you can probably find lots of shareware at http://www.download.com or other internet shareware repositories.

Keep in mind recorded audio (wav format) eats up disk space. You'll get a good idea of how much space is required after you have selected the recording options in the Sound Recorder--as the recording progresses, the indicator shows you how much space is being used.

yes, you can do all this with the sound recorder... but in order to keep from runnin out of hd space your gonna have to record in 8bit mono, and even then its gonna eat it up FAST...
but if u got the space, no prob.

One can also burn cd-roms with the wav files. Also other formats can be recorded like mp3, which my son has done using an adaptec program.

I have used the sound recorder but the question is how do I do this unattended using VOX (voice activated).

Only way I see is to record the sound first on another media using the VOX option and then transfer it to the HD.
