    Post A simple 60 minute sound recorder ???

    Hi all - Does anyone know of a simple (one-time use, then I'm gonna blow it away) sound recorder that will record either form a microphone (I'm not lookin for Hi-Fi, here) or from the headphone-out jack on a micro-cassette recorder to th einput on my sound card.

    I've found that the recorder that ships with MS has a 1-minute limit, and I need an hour.

    The final formats I want are MP3 and audio CD (wav).

    Thanks, everyone :}

    The stuff that comes with sound blasters does over a minute... Creative Wave Recorder, I think.

    you can probably get it at www.sblive.com

    Simple trick with ms sound recorder: Download a 60 min audio file with blank stuff on it and just use that as your template. You can write over it if you want. Just keep in mind sound recorder is a #$@$@%$@# program, and really handles memory usage poorly.

    This should work (I Think):
    Record a 60-second sample in recorder. Now select copy, and then paste. You now have a two minute sample. Do a copy and paste for however long a sample you need.

    Now hit record and it should record the length of the sample in memory (beyond the 60-second limit).

    Dos: I believe sound recorder only works with wav file format. Wav is basically the standard for everything, and you can convert it later to mp3 or whatever you want using a converter program. Good luck!

    You also can use Musicmatch jukebox, it lets you record directly from the mic input or line input to mp3 format without that limitations, you can download it at www.musicmatch.com (i guess this is the url), good luck Sherlock...

    Thanks, guys! I think I'll try the Musicmatch method. FYI, it's a recording on a digital recorder that I want to transfer to CD. I made it when my 2nd son was born (4 mos ago)...It was a planned C-section, and I sneaked the recorder into the Operating Room...Recorded his first cries!!! :} (and he hasn't stopped since )

    Thanks again, all.

    I was just fooling around with this last weekend.... no not sneaking into dilivery rooms and recording it! well... story for another time.

    anyway the program i use is soundjam. This is the same program i use to rip my cds out and i found this feature to work great. I actually used it to tape a radio program. it converts straight to mp3 which is nice. Even has a sleep feature build in so it stopped when i wanted. great cause i was gone and needed the program taped at a certain time and this allowed me to do that.
