I am doing an oral history of the family very soon, and need a recomendaton (hardware) for a way to record my grandfather with a microphone.

Latter I would like to record it to a CD.

I am looking to get the best quality for my dollar. Any one know what to use? Frist hand knowledge please.

Thanks,

Natty

Any audio recording program will work great. Soundgrabber, Goldwave, Soundforge, etc.

Use the "microphone in" plug of your soundcard, buy a HIGH QUALITY condenser microphone (I like PZM microphones for oral recording), and adjust levels using the recording settings in control panel and go at it.

Use 16bit 44khz settings for the highest quality, you can resave the files as .mp3's which will make them small, manageble, and easy to back up.
