Re: Audio recording

for the recording, I would say give arthax a go. I am using it with win7, but as it is a fairly new program, don't see why it wouldn't work with win10.
it has a super useful audio monitoring feature, which is great if one needs to set levels, eq, and things, and it can do wav, mp3, or flac recordings.
have been using it to remaster a lot of tapes over the covid imprisonment regime.

I tend to use wavepad for any editing work.

hope this helps.

I only need simple stereo recording, and do not need a multi-track solution.
I'm only recording off an FM tuner.

For audio recording I highly recommend Audacity and/or Reaper. Both are accessible with either JAWS or NVDA. For Reaper you must download an extension called OSARA in order to use it with screen readers though.

Recording in Audacity is easier and involves less steps, it is also great for basic editing and splicing of recordings and it should work with loop playback. However, if you're doing more extensive work with effects and need better, non destructive fading and stuff, Reaper is better. If anything, I recommend having both on your system because you may find both useful for different things. Audacity is totally free and open source while Reaper has an indefinite full featured trial period so you could use it for free forever, however you should pay the $60 license if you can.

By the way, Audacity and Reaper are some of the most popular and mainstream audio editing and mixing apps in the sighted world too :)

Sound Forge Studio 10 won't work under Windows 10, so I've found.

I've got an upgrade to Studio 15 $35, and can get the new JAWS
scripts from Jim Snowbarjer.

But before I do this, what other solutions do people use for recording

I need to be able to record, normalize, save to *.flac, be able to cut
audio and loop playback. I record from an external sound card.

Fade options are a must too.

I know some have used GoldWave but do not believe scripts are being
updated for it anymore.

Man I am glad I don't have Windows 10 on my primary computer yet!

I've had to get sited help to install sound card drivers for my
Creative card which also doesn't work on Windows 10 natively without
drivers from the company, like Windows 7 did.

I'm going to be upgrading to Windows 10 soon on my main box since Jaws
2022 won't support 7. So I wanna make sure I got all of my ducks in a row.

I was told my GeForce 210 video card will work, now I gotta get the
audio stuff working.
