Thanks. If Audacity it must be, then Audacity it shall be.
Not the worst thing that could happen on my computer.
Oh, heads up for FreeCorder.
They spend so much effort on trying to sell their PayCorder that I lost interest due to the extreme obfuscation which they inject on the victim ^H^H^H^H^H^H^H user and abandoned the software before I ever used it.
i.e., "FreeCorder" is bait and switch. Don't click. Don't download. Don't install.
Am I going to have to use Audacity ? If so, then I will schedule twenty five hours over the next two months to learn how to do this.
I used Audacity a couple of times some years ago. The only thing I did besides hitting the record-button was to adjust the recording volume to avoid amplitude clipping. It wasn't exactly "install 'n record" but definitely far less prep time than you fear.

I was highly surprised at how deeply GoldWave has hidden its ability to record from the sound card.
Assuming you were replying to me, I thought I ought to have a look myself: well, it was a bit unclear, even after reading help:
1. Create a new empty file
2. Select Options>Control properties, and under the record tab select 'Monitor input' - then you can see if any signal is seen. Under device tab, select record device (probably audio input).
3. Now the VU meter should show any sound signal (I played music with Media player). Get record levels low enough.
4. Press red 'record' button and you are off...
Well, I could not believe that the feature had been dropped since my vn (5.1), so downloaded and installed the latest (v6.23) on to my W7 PC, and it appears much the same as v5.1. I grabbed screen shots of the Control properties window,, but don't know how to post them here (probably not allowed, although they are only 20 & 30 kB PNG files). I have turned on private replies in case that lets you email me directly for the screen shots.
I haven't used Goldwave in quite a while, but I thought one could record with it - and its help file says one can (old vn 5.10). I have also used MediaCoder to convert videos, and it can apparently record also (but its user interface is fairly complex).
Football is even worst as religion regarding discussion and flame wars... I think this should go to the soapbox before it starts
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
