Thanks for the quick reply. That will get me on the right track. If my sound
card won't record, I have a Griffin Technologies Imic USB interface at home.
Is it possible that it will do the job if the ICH7 can't? Unfortunately, I
am away at a summer music institute (doing an independent study using
Rosegarden and Ardour for grad credit!) so I can't test the Imic until I get
home. Too bad. Everyone else here is using Sibelius and Pro Tools. I wanted
to have the vocal lines done to show off open source in a big way. Maybe
QAMix will save me.
