Try some of the recording/editing software that is available. I use GoldWave for most of my editing when I am fitting sound to video for CD,
It is a great program that is very easy to use.

I agree, Goldwave is one of the best. A couple years ago I needed a good audio recorder and editor and after much searching found Goldwave. Then to my amazement I discovered it's a product of my own Canadian province -- in fact my hometown! Who says the Internet isn't a small place... http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/smile.gif

I would personally suggest MUSICMATCH JUKEBOX 6, as it can record from the lin-in, rip CD's, record MP3's in real time(encode them at the same time as you input the audio into your sound-card), and can convert WAV files into MP3's at any of the standard bitrates, right up to 320kbps - all this is in the free version.

Another good program is DART-CD(Dart stands for Digital Audio Restoration Technology). This program comes with a lot of cool audio filters, but you need a reasonably fast PC to run it - like say a P200.

Also, you can try COOLEDIT, which has heaps of useful features like reverb and echo effects, crossfading and sound editing. Great program.
