    lol, Window's Sound Recorder + a base mic / headset mic.

    I've used both before, and that audio quality actually isn't all that bad. However, if you don't have a microphone at all, try playing into the left speaker while having them plugged into the microphone jack (and the program running, of course). Speakers aren't both speakers, the left duals as a semi-recorder. Try it. ^^

    Get a cheap boombox from Goodwill or the like that has recording capablities, preferably in stereo. I have an old Realistic stereo box I got from a sale for $3 and have recorded many decent sounding cassettes. My wife accompanies many S & E students and uses it to record their pieces at various stages , for their teacher's review. Works great with good fidelity. Most will have auto matic level control for recording.

    I down loaded " audacity" for free on the internet and with a cheap mic that came with my computer, it works fine for me.
