6. Recording Through the Sound Card

Please follow the steps below to record audio from audio equipment such as record players, tape decks or microphones through your sound card:

1) Make sure the audio source is properly connected to the audio input of your computer.

2) Create a new and empty recording window by selecting File - New File or position the cursor in an existing file where you want to insert the recorded audio.

3) Select Control - Record.

4) If you are recording to an empty editing window, Super Audio Editor needs to know what sample format you wish to use. Please choose the desired recording format and click the button labeled OK.

5) The Recording dialog box now opens. Please make sure that the correct input line is selected in the line-in combo box. You can monitor the input level using the level meters and adjust the input level using the input level slider. The level meter should never be in the red area in order to avoid clipping distortions.

6) Click the button labeled Record to start the recording.

7) When you are done recording, click the button labeled Keep to accept the recording.

Super Audio Editor offers Timer Record as well for you to start and stop recording after a certain period of time or depending on the presence of an input signal. To start timer record click the button labeled Timer Record in the recording dialog.
