    Voice recording


    I have a Creative Audigy sound card and a very simple Dialog microphone. I'd like to record voice, not in the professional quality, but just to be able to hear it clearly.

    But if I record it with arecord, the output is to noisy, it's hard to hear words. I tried to use audacity, but it's too professional for such a simple task, and also I had some problems with it.

    Is there a not too professional sound recording program, but wich is able to remove some of the noise?

    Do you hear "noise" when you play any other media formats? I don't know why, but I used to have a mic that constantly emitted ear piercing feedback, never did get it to work..I just got a new mic.
    Try using alsamixer or something similar to adjust the settings for the mic, it could be turned up too loud.

    No, when I play another audio files I don't hear any noise. So you think I don't need any special software, but just to set up my mic properly? My mic is not to good, but I used it for scype under Windows and it gave satisfactory sound.

    Like I said, check your mixer settings and see if there is something you can change to correct the problem, maybe lowering the mic volume.

    Good Luck
