For some number of years I have ENJOYED pressing just 1 button on my
Cassette/Radio system to record anything. It never lets me down. It never
bothers me with Illegal Messages, or it can't do recognise a file, or perform
an operation, with MOUNTAINS of upgrades, downloads, tweaks, file formats,
Then I thought the day had arrived
'The simplest free Recording Software ever'..........I believed it!
The worship of supertechnology gone completely barmy.
Dear TeamLeaders at Audacity,
Your program gave me to believe I could now press a button on my Hotkey, and
anything coming out of my PC Speakers would automatically henceforth be
recorded on my massive Hard Drive, and then onto my CD Zip Drive. Problems
What a sad man!
but do not worry, I have found peace of mind and infinite reliability again.
I put a microphone in front of my PC Speakers.
As I openned the Help files, I asked myself why was there no trace of a Help
Brochure with my Casstte Radio Recorder? I must have missed out somewhere.
If I connect it to my Sound system, and those beautiful 250 Watt Bass bins,
the sound is impeccable, and flawless.
Do you know how many years it will take before a computer can get anywhere
near the reliability and ease of analogue world?
Or put it another way: How many mountains of configurations would it take to
rig Audacity to my Hotkey for recording anything that comes off the PC sound
card heading for the Speakers into One Folder on my Hard Drive?
Should I have said, can Audacity even do such a huge and complicated thing?

Most people use Audacity to record in exactly the same way you use your
tape player: You press the RECORD button, and it records whatever comes
into the computer's microphone. It's just like a tape recorder.
I'm not sure exactly what you found difficult with Audacity. Did you
want it to start automatically when you press the "record" button on
an extended keyboard? Did you have problems getting the computer to
record and play at the same time? Let us know *specific* things that
Audacity should do better, and we will work to improve it.
