Hi,Just installed audacity on my windows 7.I wish to record my granddaughter singing songs from the school concert,using a microphone.Can I have some info on the setting of the software to do some recordings,And do I need a good a good mike or will a cheepy work fine,I want the recordings to be rather good.Also can I then transfer her song to a cd disc?
You really need a decent mic but only you can tell what the results are . Is this going to be you recording at the concert .If so will you be able to positition the mic anywhere you choose or just sat in the audience somewhere. As for transfering to CD yes but not with Audacity once you have the recording and have done any editing just Export as .Wav the youcan burn with windows media playeraudacity
Tell your granddaughter to sing out loud and clear, and (you) get a good seat near the front. An external mic connected to your recording machine will help with the quality of the finished result.It's best to do a rehearsal at another similar event, to get the hang of it.
