    Hi guys,

    I've got a laptop with microphone input capability (3.5mm phono jack). I DJ a bit and I want to record a set on the laptop. Would I be able to connect the phono output from a mixer (2 line level phono analogue) to the microphone input on the laptop and record it straight to the hard disk ?

    If so, can anyone recommend a piece of software to use to do the recording and also for editing ?

    Many thanks,

    Richie.

    Yep, no problems with what you want to do.

    I used to do live webcasts and used Real Encoder (Helix) & Windows Media Encoder.

    There were used to stream over the 'net. but they can encode locally on your hard drive as well.

    You could look for Sound Forge - more of a dedicated recording/editing suite. You might be able to get a free limited download.
