Recording and Editing Audio Files on Windows in Soundbooth

Recording and preparing audio files for edit in Soundbooth on a Windows based computer is easier than it may seem.

For starters most Windows operated laptops have a built in mic and a sound recording application.

This can be found in Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Sound Recorder

…And looks like this

Now you just have to make sure to locate the mic while recording to get the best results.

Now all you have to do is save the file.  The file saves as a Windows Media Audio (.wma) file, which is default and cannot be changed.

Soundbooth can save the file after edit as another file type.  This comes in handy because .wma files are Windows based files and can get you in to trouble in other programs.

There are also a ton of audio file converters on the internet that you can download for free to convert between just about any two file extention types.
