Sound Recorder

Postby alphaeng » Thu Mar 21, 2013 5:45 am

Hi. I am fairly new to Linux and so far it seems to work very smoothly.
I have been using Roxio 10 (on Windows) to record & edit cassette tapes & to store as MP3 files.
Can anybody recommend an alternative software to run on Linux. I have trawled through endless programs & tried a few but cannot find a comparable package.

many thanks in anticipation
