    Yeah I used that, then when I exported the files it only saved a few as WAV...don't know why. It really annoyed me. So I got Soundforge :) I recommend it

    I rekon Audacity is the best, its free and a piece of piss to us. You can export as Wav then convert to MP3. Easiest way to do it IMO

    wavepad. export straight to mp3. You can also edit your r3ecording after i.e. boost levels or normalize it.

    Audacity lets you do all that editing/normalizing malarky too. Plus there are hundreds of tutorials out there for it. It's only shortcoming is that out-of-the box you can't export to mp3 because of licensing issues - all you have to do is google for 'Audacity mp3' and there are guides to show you how to do it (y)

    Download this then go to export as mp3 in audacity, when it asks you for the lame encoder, point it to the file you just downloaded.

    Simple.

    Audacity is simple to use & free. You CAN export as .mp3 so long as you have the lame encoder. Not hard to do.

    You can adjust levels and all that after recording too
