Subject: Recording to MP3
From: Mrs.Duck
Date: 19 Jul 02 - 12:13 PM

I have been asked to send a recording of me singing. I have a mini disc but want to convert the recording to MP3 so I can send the file by e-mail. How can I do this? Is there some software that is easily downloaded? I don't want to spend a fortune as this is not likely to happen very often (most people want me to shut up!!!)
Thanks
Jane

I have software called Jetaudio that I got off a warez site, clean cracked and free...

But I suspect it'll be more way more than you need/want...

Does Windows Media Player record straight to mp3? I donno... If it does it'd be as easy as running your MD through the "line in" on your sound card, and recording it that way...

Mrs Duck

I am no technical wizard but the cheapest way to do this I have found to do this is to download Media Jukebox 8 Click here You get a two week trial free, you can then plug your mini-disc into the microphone socket and record to mp3, the quality is not as good as recording through the sound card but is easier and cheaper for Ludites.

Chris

P.S. Send me a copy of the results please I'll PM you with my email address.

If you're plugging you MD into the Mic Socket, then you ARE recording it through your sound card...

:-)

Use the Line In jack though, if you have one... it'll sound better, and be easier to set up...

Jane, I've used programs that record directly to MP3 and all of them, in my opinion, do a poor job soundwise. The fact is that they're all really recording a WAVE file as a temporary file and converting to MP3 on the fly. The main problem with this is that it's very resource intensive and tends to leave clicks, pops and dropouts. My solution has been to record to WAVE, then encode to MP3 as a separate operation. Then, when I've gotten a satisfactory MP3 file, I delete the WAVE file.

There are a number of free WAVE recorders available, although I use a shareware program called Total Recorder for all my recording. (cost of registration is $11.95 US). I use a program called Simple MP3 for encoding. It's free, and works well.

As Clinton stated above, using the line-in on your sound card will give the best results for recording a WAVE file. Simple MP3 is found here:

Simple

and Total Recorder here:

Total Recorder

As I said above, you can also find a free recording program that'll do the job just as well. I actually bought Total Recorder for recording streaming audio and just use it for everything else because it's there.

Thanks for all the help. Have actually settled on the Jetaudio which is more than I need at present but will prove very useful with some other future plans and projects!!

You don't need cracked warez to make MP3 files for free.

Take a look Here and take your pick.

I use LAME on a Linux command line.

BTW, I fully agree with two points made earlier:
1. Use line input, not mic input on sound card
2. Record to WAV, then convert WAV to MP3. It will take up a fair amount of disk space, but if that's in short short supply you can delete the WAV once you have the MP3.

free program http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc.htm "dBpowerAMP Music Converter (dMC), is one of those must have utilities, indispensable for converting audio files from one format to another. Part of dMCs formidable arsenal, is its ability to rip music straight from Audio CDs!, or LPs [optional install].

Straight out of the box dMC can convert to and from Wave, Mp3 and from CD Audio (CDA) files. "
