    You can use Cool Edit 2000. It's a really good recording software. You can download a shareware version at www.cooledit.com

    Try Loop Recorder (www.looprecorder.de), it can record continuously or in loop mode which is basically like a buffer of audio (mine is set to 10 mins). You can then use a built in tool to cut sections out from this buffer, apply fades and encode into mp3 using lame. You can do all this while the buffer is still running.

    Works a treat for saving a tune you heard on radio/tv within your the specified period.

    I do this quite a bit. I have Cool Edit Pro 2.0, but the programs should be similar. Open Cool Edit, select File, New, and choose 44khz 16-bit stereo. Under options, select "Monitor Record Level". You'll have to open your Recording Level from the Control Panel (Windows 98) to adjust the record volume. In the Record Control box, select Wave, and adjust your volume until the record levels in Cool Edit average around -6dB, but don't exceed -3 or -2 dB. When the record level is set, click stop, then click record in Cool Edit. Stop is the green square icon, and record is the red circle. Save this in a folder when complete, and you have your wave file.
