All working now, thanks!

Is there an app that includes a recording level meter?

Also, are the features like Mic Boost active or not based on the autodetect of the sound card features?

Thanks again!

I found it in Puppy Package Manager and it installed OK on my laptop - I will try it on his - sure looks like a good "middle option" between simple_recorder and Audacity.

Will report back ...

Thanks!

? Audacity seems to me to be easier to use than mhWavedit Smile Its not like there's a whole lot of complexity getting in the way - the complexity is in menus which you can just ignore.

If you want to record directly to mp3 you could always try Wine + Messer or Mp3Directcut.

audacity 1-3-2 beta

that version had many issues in ubuntu 8.04


I don't know about 1.3.2, but the later versions work great in Puppy. And if they did crash somehow you can actually recover your session unlike 1.2.x. We really should be pointing people towards them.

mhwaveedit does not seem to offer the option to Start-Pause-Resume-Pause-Resume-Save that my son needs to create multiple voice-dialog recordings in a simple file.

Can someone explain how in Audacity he could simply Open a new file, begin Recording, Pause, then Resume, Pause, then Resume, and when done simply save to a wav or mp3 file?

Neither he or I saw that in Audacity -- it looked more like one had to create a complex Project then try to extract simple voice audio from it.
