Well it prob wont cost you anything!

Have you got...

1) A microphone which will plug into your pc?
2) A pc with a cd writer?

If you have that then your all fixed up.

All you need to do is get 2 software programmes...

1) You will need a software program which will record your voice. I recomment the free audacity.
Download it here... Download!!!

2) You will then need a cd burner software. Download a free one here. Download!!!

Then install them both and record your voice with audacity, export it into an mp3. Then burn the mp3 to a cd.

Walla, there you go. :tazz:

ah... something I am familiar with.... first what mixing board are you using? next what sound card are you using? you will need software and hardware to make this work. what software are you using now.... (thinking that you may want to edit your work before dumping to cd).

also are you just dumping what every you have mixed into the pc to record directly to cd? just trying to get a better feel for what your trying to do.

well you should look into getting a better sound card. something that linux supports. probably a turtle beach or creative labs card will do. something basic like the sound blaster live (old, but good and cheap).

now I don't know anything about linux apps. I asked a friend who's into that stuff to see what he uses. hopefully he will get back to me tomorrow.

thats a tight little mixer. you want a good quality 1/4 stereo to 1/8 stereo cable to go from phones to the mic/aux input. you could get a live card with the extra options... it has an external that you can plug all kinds of additional connections into. the one I listed above is the latest. I was thinking if you looked around you could find the old one for less than 50 usd.

or you could just through caution to the wind and get something like this: http://www.emu.com/

in fact I just found this: http://www.euronet.nl/~mailme/

know what cables are what.... right... :tazz: (i'm giving you a hard time here... :) )

all of your outputs are 1/4 ts connectors. all of your sound card inputs are 1/8 unless you upgrade from the basic sound card. The item you linked to is only an upgrade/addon card for one of their emu series sound cards.

for now I suggest holding off on the sound card. lets start with this: http://linux-sound.org/one-page.html

look through there. it will talk about what is availabe for linux as far as software and also lists what sound cards work with linux.

for now all you need is the ability to go from the sound card input to the out put of your mixer.

ok so they make cables that go from the board into the colored sound card slots? now that i am thinking about it it does look like 1/8" would fit.

your cable
midi doesn't do you any good because your not working with midi. the mixer doesn't support any other connections beside 1/4" out or rca (tape out). the standard mic/aux inputs on any sound card our 1/8 stereo connections.


actually I learned that audacity has support for windows, mac, and linux.
