I've always said that learning must be motivated. Now I am. I want to record a piece of music on a CD and my voice over the top of it reading a poem for my sweetheart for a Christmas present.

I can get the music. I have the poem. I just don't know how to combine them. What tools do I need? Is there a tutorial? Anybody point me in the right direction?

I'll check by in a while. I'm out googling.

As stated, then you need a program like Nero which will take your file and convert it to a fashion that plays as an audio CD.

Thanks. I found Audacity while googling. Does seem to fit the bill. Tried a small lavalier microphone i had around the house. Doesn't cut it. What sort of specs should i be looking for?

is this something for yourself or something "professional"? if you just want clear and decent voice recording there are a few things to consider:

for voice, most any mic will work. For clarity and lack of noise/pops/crackles then you can get one of the zalman headseats with mic. They are a little cheaper than the turtle beach.

you may have to invest in a sound card. Sometimes the quality can be effected by the sound hw you use.

Thanks. Got one of those headsets. Built-in sound seems ok.
