i am wanting to record some of my mixes

is it possible to take the booth output to my laptop. my laptop does not have an audio input and i am just wondering is there such thing as a converter from a headphone sized plug to a usb so i can get good quality recordings. Also if i was to do this would my laptop be able to read my mixer and if it doesnt is there some software i can get.

My mixer is a Behringer mixer which isnt best so it did not come with any software to record onto a computer so i am trying to make do with wot i have.

if this isnt possible what other ways could i record from my mixer

if any1 can help i will be grateful

cheers

does your laptop not have a mic input? usually a mini jack?

then u just use one of these....

out of ya mixer, into ya lappy, recording on a program, a free one is audacity (google it) its free and its good.

I got an Emu 0202 and works great for what I use it for. I'd recomend getting a cheap interface if you have the money. Using a direct cable with a laptop will cause a lot of background noise.

Also if you ever wanted to do something like an internet radio show the analogue digital converter on your onboard soundcard would not be able to cope and it would sound terrible.
