Audio input software

Can anyone help me.....
I need to record some analogue audio onto my laptop, but it doesn't have a line-in audio port. And it needs to be in high quality so I can't just use a microphone.
So, is there any software about that allows you to record audio via a usb port, for example. I'm not sure what to search for on google so haven't been able to find anything so far.
Anyone understand what I'm on about, or have any suggestions/advice???

I have a bit of software called polderbit which is quite good.

I normally use the line in socket to record though, and am not sure if it works with USB.... but worth a look!

if you have a mic port (actuall port 3.5mm) you can get programs that record from that.... this would be at the same quality that a line in would be if that helps

you'd be best just investing in a sound card to be honest with some jack inputs.

there are some software based programs which allow you to record via usb - but will require your desk/effects unit to have a usb out.

do you have a headphone jack input ? if so you could just buy a adapter for your jack/xlr

Ebuyer do an external soundcard. Currently £3.99 but it's been £2.59 twice this month. It looks a bit odd because it's a combined soundcard and voip phone. It may be suitable:

I tried doing that, but it records at such a high level that it ends up being distorted. Turning down all the levels etc doesn't help either.

So with this I'd be able to plug my device into the soundcard, which in turn plugs into the computer allowing me to record? Hmmm, ideal I think!

Hey there,

I would recomend getting yourself a cheap audio interface, the above mentioned soundcard will not give you a good quality of line level recording. I recomend something like the 'Lexicon Alpha' which can be had for around 50 quid, but then again it depends on how much you want to spend.

Any questions just PM me, I deal with audio all day long :)
