Sony Sound Forge version 10.0

My oS is win 7 prof 64 bit and i have the above software.  When i make a recording using my mike from the pc's speakers, i am able to save it as a wave file.  how the capture looks like is given in the attached file.  If u notice the waves are highly concentrated, and thus for me to precisely edit it is a challenge.  How can i spread out the waves so that i coudl either insert marker or precisely edit the file.

Hello jegajothy

I am curious to know why you are using a microphone to record the sound from your PC's speakers, unless of course you are using two different computers - one for the speaker sound and the other one with the microphone and recording software.

If you are doing this all one one computer you should be able to set the audio source in the recording software to the soundcard or to "What U Hear", and the recording software should capture the audio signal without the added complications of the microphone picking up background noise and also possibly distorted sound from speakers.

In every recording software I have used you can zoom in on the wave form so that you can see the peaks and silent gaps more easily.
