hey yall. i lots the CD that had my old recording software, which sucks cause i really liked it. since my computer crashed and eraised it, i no longer have it, i never got around to re-installing it. anyways, i got some software called Music Maker V2000 from a friend of mine, he said he got it out of a cerial box and didnt need it. do i go ahead and install this or should i go buy some better recording software? also, dont mean to sound like a noob, it only says it supports WAV files, is that the same as MP3? and if this is in the wrong forum, please move it.

WAV files are a lossless codec therefore you get all the quality of what you recorded, when you convert to MP3 you lose alot of the quality, you might not notice it too much but WAV files are usually huge and MP3 are small. you can always try it out like and just get some free conversion software off the net to make you files into MP3, you can always uninstall it if its balls like.

can you put WAV files up on sites like dmusic or do you have to use MP3?

i dunno about D music but they may not allow it because they are so big and they might not wanna host so many large files, but they should state somewhere on their site what files thay can host for you. MYSPACE will only let you upload mp3 files though if you ever use that.

use whatever you like best. But if you use the other program you can still use audacity to convert the wav file to mp3.

no recording package records straight to mp3.
it records as a wav you convert it at the end.
