The program is able to record audio using two methods, a manual mode where
you have complete control over all of your settings or using the Record Wizard
which walks you through the process of recording. The Record Wizard also
offers you the benefits of automatic level adjustment and silence detection.
Using either method, the first step is to connect the audio source
(microphone, CD player, tape deck, etc.) to the appropriate input jack on your
sound card. Refer to the sound card's hardware documentation if you need help
When the record button is pressed, Advanced Audio Editor (AudioSurgeon) gives
you an option to use your current mixer settings or the Record Wizard. This
option can also be set from the General Options section of the Preferences
window. If you turn off the prompt, you can also run the Record Wizard by
selecting Tools > Record Wizard.
