I know they have a bunch software out there,
but does anybody know a pretty good one?
I'm using the sound recorder that comes with Windows XP
and It's pretty cheap sounding.

Does it have to do with the microphone? Or just better software?

Any help will be appreciated!

Well, I use Windows XP's sound recorder for quick stuff. It's actually a very neat little note and music recorder when I'm in a hurry. Sounds quality is your mic, not the software. I also use NCH's free Wavepad editor for other stuff, though. It lets you record longer than 60 seconds at a time, you can speed up and slow down the recording and change pitch separately, unlike in XP's recorder. You can, to a degree, cut noise and optimize the audio, and it allows for fading, cross-fading, whatever. There are a few features that I think require the full version, but for the most part you won't need them.

Also, I've heard good things about Audacity.

I use Cool Edit Pro. It's probably your mic quality, but with Cool Edit you can add special effects, mix sounds, and save the recordings as several types of files. I know with sound recorder you can only save them as .wav and the file sizes are big.

You haven't dug into Sound Recorder yet. It's not hard to make it save as an MP3.

Just pick one and stick to it. Once you're used to their interfaces, they all do pretty much the same thing. Go with the cheapest/free one. Is Audacity free? I think it is...

Yeah. Just record, go to File>Properties, click Convert Now, choose Mpeg Layer-3 in the Format box, and save. However, you need to switch the save format to "All Files" and add .mp3 to the end.
