    Just wondering. I'm almost done the script for my Anthology episode "No Way Out" and want to start recording lines soon. I need a good recording program that i can download and save to disc then load onto my computer. (Or find on my computer. I have no idea half the stuff on my computer)I have no Internet connection at home yet.

    Nathan, how do you record the narration parts? All in one big chunk or did you cut them in half?

    I've used Wavelab and Total Recorder.

    As for narration, I usually do one big file so I can easily edit in wavelab, unless there are tons of different takes.

    It's probably posted elsewhere, but we used Sound Forge to record some of our lines. But we got lucky in that most of our Richmond cast got to record directly to a digital mixer. But I'll swear by Sound Forge. It's an excellent product.

    We used a mixture of recording apps on Coruscant?.

    I used Soundforge and Cool Edit both to do mine. Each had its own various effects that I liked. Other cast members used the good ol' Sound Recorder that comes with windows. It really all comes down to options. The more you want, usually, the more expensive the application. And Cool Edit is the exception with its free version. ;)

    I'll throw this into the mix. Magix Music Studio 7 deluxe. There is a learning curve, but its $99, and you can record directly into the mix area if you like. There is an extra fee for unlimited mp3 mastering, but if you master your productions into a wav file, then purchase MusicMatch jukebox, it has a file converter that will convert a wav file to an mp3. Music Studio 7 is working great for me.

    for free, you can use wav recorder that comes with windows, and then edit it all in audacity, also a free utility. IF you have XP, you can do some of it in Movie Maker. Musicmatch also has a recording ability
