    I wanna get some vocal samples from a DVD, but I'm not sure how to go about it or what's the best program to use for recording. Any advice? :coffee:

    buy morgana and get sampling with that. otherwise cooledit pro or audition as they call it now is your best bet. cool edit pro over audition though, they fucked up the interface on audition

    You could always get a jack to jack put one end in your headphone output and one end in your audio input and play the DVD on your computer and record the part you want.

    You could literally just record out of the headphone jack straight into the mic input into your sequencer or a wave editor program. Audacity works fine mate and it's free they even recommend it at my uni. You might be surprised at the results from doing it that way, it's a whole lot more accurate then using tape machines like they used to!

    jeezus f christ people... mini jack recording ? i mean really...
    just download DVD audio extractor. it can give you either a stereo file of the dvd audio, or 6 mono files for surround formats.
    no degradation, no hassle with ghetto methods. just clean and crisp 24 bit 48 KHz.

    for web based samples say off youtube, i use a program called Irecord(mac) then i load it up in recycle then to esx24(logic) or edit straight in audio.

    but i rarely use samples inless its a drum break
