    We are currently recording services with the sound recorder built into Worshiphim software, but it doesn't edit.

    I have tried "audacity" but when I try to burn to CD it says the .dll isn't compatible and cannot burn file.

    Can anyone give suggestions on fixing "audacity" or recommending another cheap or free editor?

    I use goldwave to edit audio files. You can get it at www.goldwave.com. I think it's $20. I use the older version (v.4.26 - I think it's easier to use). You can save files as .wav or mp3 and then write to a disc.

    It depends, I suppose, on how complex editing facilities you need. I use a program called WavePad. It is downloadable at: http://nch.com.au/wavepad/index.html Its features include the following:
      • Sound editing functions include cut, copy, paste, delete, insert, silence, autotrim and more.
      • Audio effects include, amplify, normalize, equaliser, envelope, reverb, echo, reverse, sample rate conversion and more.
      • Supports a number of file formats including wav (multiple codecs), mp3, vox, gsm, real audio, au, aif, flac, ogg and many more.
      • Batch processing supports up to 32000 files allowing you to apply effects and/or convert your files as a single function.
      • Tools include spectral analysis (FFT) and speech synthesis (text-to-speech).
      • Recorder supports autotrim and voice activated recording and more.
      • Audio restoration features including noise reduction and click pop removal.
      • Supports sample rates from 6000 to 96000Hz, stereo or mono, 8, 16, 24 or 32 bits.
      • Includes its own CD ripper with 'ultrafast 'rip mode and cddb music database lookup.
      • Works directly with MixPad multi-track audio mixing software.
      • Links directly to the Express Burn CD Recorder to burn your sound files to CD.
      • Easy to use interface will get you started editing in just minutes.
    You can download the standard edition free, but the so-called "Master's Edition" costs $49.40

    Sony's Sound Forge works well for us. Retailed for $79. You can save files as .wma .wav or mp3 and then write to a disc plus many other editing features.

    I asked DH about this and he said that he uses audacity and has no problems. His suggestion is to try to uninstall it and reinstall it. That might help.
