Well, as long as it's not fancy, I use gnome-sound-recorder. I already use GNOME, so it is there. Part of the gnome-media-apps package.

Whatever you are using for a mic run it thought Audacity. Audacity is hard to beat. It's like vi for sound -- precise and lots of features. Try the Noise Removal function if you are in a noisy environment.

If it's slackware-specific then I'll answer arecord because it shipped with the DVD. mhwaveedit and audacity are also good choices. These three are more and more complex programs from left to right.

Your go-to site for Slackware packages should be slackbuilds.org. Audacity is there.

Thanks, but there is no reference as to whether it's 64 bit : )

+1 for Audacity.

I've done a lot of work on Audacity and really like it.

For sound recording I use a Zoom H4.

It depends on how you compile it. The source code is portable.

It's gets built and installed as 64-bit if your system is 64-bit.

A SlackBuild almost always compiles the package from a source tarball. (Audacity's does, in particular). To do so it uses your systems's compilers and your system's compilation flags. That means that if you build the package on a 64-bit system, you will get a 64-bit app.

Audacity.

I'm inclined to think the quality of the input device is important. I cashed in some rewards points and got a Sony gamer headset. It made a significant and noticeable difference in the quality of the recordings compared to my cheapo headset from Radio Slum.
