Hi, You might want to try CDex from http://cdex.n3.net It's a program designed for ripping audio tracks from CD's but it also has= the capability to record in either wave or MP3. This program is very= accessible and is free. Other alternatives might include Goldwave which is= pretty nice for its price (around $50 US), Sound Forge which is quite a= big more (usually $350 US) or Cool Edit. Depending on what you want to do= with your recordings, a simple program like CDex may suit your needs. But= if you want to master, compress, and take the noise out of your cassettes= then you will need to invest some money into a good audio editor. As for= which is the best, there is really no answer to that. I personally prefer= Sound Forge, but others on this list prefer Cool Edit or GoldWave.
