On another subject, what are the options for recording? I did my recording on the standard "sound recorder" on Windows XP but there are lots of pops that weren't part of my playing. I've heard of Audacity, and others I can't remember right now. What are some good ones? What do they cost? Can they be downloaded or do they come from a store on CD or DVD format?

Audacity is freeware

Acoustica Mixcraft(the one I use) is like 40 dollars for a digital download

Cakewalk is also 40 dollars.

From there they go up in price. :) Traction 2 for example from MAckie is 150 and we won't even discuss ProTools hehe

Thanks, Ed, that was what I needed to know. I'm off to work now but will work on it again tonight when I get home. :) And thanks for your PM. I may be able to figure it out from there.

Are you using MOBO built-in sound?

If so, expect lots of computer noise to be present. They locate it right beside the CPU, the noisiest place in the box!

This has some hardware/location hints for better sound.
