Prefer .wma For Recording

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Music, Pictures and Video' started by bridgebrokencondor, Aug 4, 2009.

  1. I've dug a little deeper since yesterday and thought about the future uses to
    which I might wish to put direct recordings. So-----can anyone steer me
    towards some simplistic software for recording .wma files - 192kbit/s
    preferred.

  3. Thanks, John.

    WME9 looks promising. I'll wait until my head stops spinning before I give
    it a whirl - I've been bamboozled by Audacity for a couple of hours.

    Audacity does not support .wma files.

    See the following article:

    Thanks again, John. WME9 seems not to have a recording facility. Having
    reviewed what is available (in my price range) I think I might experiment
    with Windows Sound Recorder, recording .wav files from analogue sources and
    copying them to audio CD.

    Windows Sound Recorder might work for you but I'm
    wondering if you read the article I posted in my previous
    reply. And BTW....Windows Media Encoder is free.

    I had overlooked your second suggestion thinking that voice recording was of
    little interest to me. I'll give it a try when I wake up.

    YES. This looks like the very thing I need. My thanks once again.
