What is the difference or uses between,
Bonk_enc and Audacity ?
[removed double post - moderator PP]
Bonk_enc is used for ripping CDs and re-encoding audio files in a number of ways.
It cannot actually edit the sound files.
Audacity is used for actually creating and editing audio files, including adding effects.
It can save in multiple formats.
It cannot rip music from CDs.
You should look at the individual web pages for Bonk_enc and Audacity
They have more detailed descriptions of the functions of the programs.
Even better, download them and try them out!
The beauty of Portable Apps is that you can try out an app for free, and if you don't like it, just delete the application folder to get rid of it.
I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to please you.
Follower! It's *BonkEnc.
That post was at 7 AM, and I hadn't had coffee yet.
You're a moderator, right? If you can edit it, feel free -
or you could just leave it there, and force me to wear my shame like a scarlet letter.
Oh, turn away, I'm hideous!

Does either of them Record from a Casette player that would be
connected to the computer sound card VIA a mini headphone type
Trying to use mini headphone jack from cassette deck into the
computer sound card...
Audacity has a recording feature. It should work for you. I've never tried it, but i have seen tutorials on how to record from cassette to mp3 with audacity
The trick is to make sure you have the right settings in Windows for your Recording input.
Luckily, your recording source can be selected from within Audacity.
In the upper right of the window is the mixer toolbar, with a volume level for output and input, and a drop-down to select your recording source.
Try each one; depending on the sound card, it may accept the microphone, the line in, or the wave mix (each sound card may show slightly different choices).
Once you figure out which one is picking up from your card, then you should adjust your input level so that it doesn't max out on the loudest parts - you can tell, because the waves get cut off.
It will take some experimentation, but once you can get a clean recording in Audacity, you can export it as a wav, an mp3, or an ogg file.
Audacity worked perfectly, easily.
Even on a OLD PIII 550, AND usb 1.1.
