stereo mix as the source will do just fine for him.  he should be told though, that if he continues to use his computer while simultaneously recording, if he hits a key in a computer program which elicits a warning beep, that this sound will also be included in his recording.

David this should help him if he's running windows. I have used both the methods I mention below.

If you are using windows I think you can choose "stereo mix" as the source you are recording from if you are recording sound thats coming from your computer. I think in that case it will just be recording what ever is being sent to your computer speakers.

If listening on a stereo or boom box run an from an output or headphones Jack to the line in on your computer and set audacity to record from line in.

This is all asuming you know how to record from other devices in audacity.

Hello,

Is it possible to use Audacity to record from a radio station, when you happen to run across something and want to quickly get a recording process going? In other words I halppen to tune into something live on radio, and want to get it captured on the computer which is where I am already listening to it.

Bob S.

Anders,
First, what platform are you on (and what is the OS of that platform). Second, how much RAM do you have and what is your processors. Third, please clarify what "thrown out in the main window" means. Does it mean that Audacity crashes, or does it mean that you loose you wave form, or does it mean that the dialog box closes.

Thanks,
Josh
