Recording Live Performances
With the Sound Recorder you can also record live performances.
There are a couple of options here:
1. Connect a microphone
to the Mic input of the computer or laptop and record the live
performance directly from the Mic or Microphone sound source.
Please be advised that on many computers the microphone input
is mono and not stereo, so if you connect a stereo microphone
(or two separate microphones with an adapter plug), the recording
will only be in mono. If you see two separate volume sliders
in the Sound Recorder window when you select the Mic or Microphone
sound source, then you can record in stereo
the Line-Out output on an external sound system or PA to the
Line-In or Aux input on the computer and record from the Line-In,
Aux or Auxiliary sound source. This is of course most appropriate
with complex performances where some sort of sound system is
already in place, like in theaters or concert halls.
3. Record the live performance with other traditional equipment,
like a cassette-, tape- or minidisk-recorder. Later these recordings
can be transferred to your computer by connecting a cassette-,
tape- or minidisk-player to the Line-In or Aux input on the
computer and record from the Line-In, Aux or Auxiliary sound
source. See Connecting cassette, tape or record-players as well.
