    Capture and record sound to CD

    I want to record some amateur music at home and burn it to CD.

    What's the easiest way to do this - preferably with free software.

    Soundtrack produced to be used at a cremation.

    Morning, I would have a go at using Audacity, you can also save songs as MP3’s.
    Audacity: Free Audio Editor and Recorder - download Audacity
    Audacity: How do I download and install the LAME MP3 encoder? – MP3 plugin.

    What's not working carina2011? It is probably the input/output settings are incorrect.

    Does audacity allow the burning of optical discs though ?

    If not there are :

    CDBurnerXP: Free CD and DVD burning software

    DeepBurner - Powerful CD and DVD Burning Package

    The Official ImgBurn Website

    img burn is a good one

    If you want to create a standard audio CD (as opposed to a data CD), export each track from Audacity as a WAV file. If you save them as MP3s you will be losing quality unnecessarily because you are going from a lossless format (WAV) to a lossy format (MP3).

    Btw, to create an audio CD in ImgBurn see this tutorial: http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=5555.
