How do I create an audio file from a tape recording?
First you'll have to connect a tape player to the "line in" input of your sound card. If you want to create a Real Player file, then follow the instructions and help provided with RealProducer or the MP3 encoder software after you've downloaded and installed it. See previous question, "What software to I need?"

If you would like to create a .wav or .mp3 file, any audio recording and editing software will do. We recommend the free software Audacity.
