Iintegrating a digital voice recorder with Visual Basic

I would like to research integrating a digital voice recorder with a Visual Basic application.  Ideally, I would like to be able to use the digital voice recorder and my application at the same time.  I would like to be able to programmatically either (1) grab the start time and end time of a section of the audio, store it in a database, and later a user could immediately play that part of the audio file, or (2) create a new sound file (.wav, .mp3, whatever) each time a user specifies through the program and store the sound file on the computer.

Thoughts on how to get started?  Digital voice records to consider?  SDKs?

U can use DirectX to Record wav Files from VB
Add reference to the Dll (dx8vb.dll or higher)
   DirectX 8 for Visual Basic Type Library

Good enough to get me started.  I have concerns about the size of these files if I am recording an all-day (8-hour) session, but I guess compression and converting to other file formats are also to be researched!  Thanks Shiju.
