    Burning audio CDs explained
  You made some recordings on your computer and now want to put them on a standard audio CD to play in a car or home stereo. Supposing you have a CD-R or CD-RW drive, software for burning CDs and blank recordable media we will tell you how to do that when your recording is made with one of our programs.

Audio tracks you can find on a standard audio CD are files with extension .CDA and most programs for burning CDs are able to make them for you once you supply them with a certain type of WAV files. So, the key to the whole thing is to get those WAV files with 44KHz 16-bit stereo sound quality.

Claudio can make recordings directly in necessary quality. You can recognize it on the program's front panel (stereo, hi, 16-bit). All you have to do to prepare such recording for burning on an audio CD is to export it to WAV format. Click Export, choose Export Track to WAV option, do not change sound quality parameters on the Export Options dialog and save the file to some folder. When all WAV files you want to put on an audio CD are ready, start your program for burning CDs and follow its procedure for making audio CDs.

The situation is a little bit different with other three sound recorders we have. While they can all make recordings with 44KHz sampling rate, they are limited to 8-bit mono sound. Therefore WAV files they produce through exporting are not directly suitable for making audio CDs. On the other hand, it is not hard at all to make the necessary conversion.

Sound Recorder that you got with Windows can do the trick. Start it, go to File menu and Open a WAV file that should be converted. Then choose Properties option from the File menu, click Convert Now, leave the format to PCM, from the list of Attributes choose 44.100 KHz; 16 bit; Stereo; 172 kb/sec and click Ok twice. Finally, choose Save option from the File menu to complete the conversion. The file is now ready for burning.

These instructions are applicable to all our sound recorders: Audio Notes Recorder, Claudio, Lecture Recorder, Minutes of Meeting Recorder
