What's the best way to record if all you're after is a reasonable level of sound quality?
I know 'reasonable' isn't very descriptive here, I'm basically looking for the easiest way to get recordings onto my computer without losing most of the quality.

Is there any freeware software out there for editing/combining recordings?

I've noticed the 'head phones' socket on my amp, is there a way to use that to record the sound directly? (i.e. via some form of A to D converter)???

If it's any use I think I have the following microphone http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=101551&storeId=10151&langId=-1&productId=11028763 lying about somewhere and a minidisc player that has no pc connectivity.

Any info always appreciated
