SoundRecorder a FREE program

This allows you to record sound of almost any length. You can control and adjust the sound level with two sliders for input level and volume. While recording, SoundRecorder writes the data in a temporary file on your hard disk; once you choose to save the sound, the temporary data is written to a final sound file.
